I’ve gotta say, surprisingly I’m really liking this whole Fantasy Football thing. I am just as shocked as YOU! Believe me! I used to make fun of people who played Fantasy football. But, no more!
I mean… it doesn’t hurt that I’m beating Dan… Mr., “I KNOW EVERYTHING ABOUT FOOTBALL… I AM CONSTANTLY BEING BOMBARDED ON MY PHONE WITH UPDATES ABOUT WHAT FOOTBALL PLAYER IS DOING WHAT AND WHEN!”
So, Dan talked me into doing my first ever fantasy football league. He was SO excited about the idea of doing this together, that I thought,”Eh, why not? I’ll give it a try!” It’s not that I don’t like football… I do-ish. I just don’t like it as much as my husband. A game a weekend, fine, but the whole weekend on the sofa? No thanks! And, even though I agreed to do fantasy football, I really wasn’t all that into it. In fact, I showed up at the draft with ZERO idea of what I was doing and everyone else had “research.” I’m like, “I’m here for the party food and wine!”
Fortunately… it’s a pretty relaxed league and I ended up making some pretty good picks, or at least I’m told. I didn’t use traditional “research,” I made my picks based on whether I’d heard of that player before… and not in a bad way, like for beating their wife. Seems to be working out okay… I’ve got the second highest total in the league after week 1. And, I gotta say, I absolutely loved checking on my team on the app. It was a little addicting and a lot more fun to watch the games Sunday.
Ladies, if your man is like Dan, totally into football, try a Fantasy League next year. You’ll be AMAZED at how much more fun football is. Truly. And, bonus, I could win me some serious shopping money!!
