They are at it again.
There may be some new faces but the drama is still the same. Well, almost. Kris has yet to accuse me of rigging the game.
This year I am happy to report that all of the people playing fantasy football realize that they are in a fantasy league. One team had to be coaxed a bit, but he scored Aaron Rodgers as his starting quarterback so I think he will be fine.
Shortly after our predetermined auto draft one of the new guys, Scott, and my dear husband Seth decided next year we should have a live draft. They were not referring to the live draft that occurs on the web where you can sit at home and make selections. No. They want a live draft which includes a war room, podium, cheerleaders, pizza and beer. Now beer, pizza and a podium I can understand but I am not sure where they are planning to find the cheerleaders. I am not sure you can just order cheerleaders from eBay.
They said that draft kits could be made up for everyone participating. Everyone would have to stand up and announce their selection.
Then an argument started about the draft order. This is all before the first snap of the year.
But hey, Kris is not accusing me of rigging the game yet.
The worst monster of all, my father, and I decided to join a second league. So this season he is starting out with two loses instead of one during the first week. He told me that he had fantasy cast open in two windows so he can see the live scoring for both leagues at the same time. What you may not realize is when you have fantasy cast open you can click between leagues with ease.
His first loss came from Irish Pixies, who happens to be the wife of Kris. While Kris lost his wife had the fourth highest score of the week. Before the season started I asked her if she wanted to play. Kris said that she would never remember to login and would not be serious. When I texted her during the Monday night game she was able to rattle off exactly what needed to happen for her to secure a victory over my father. And Tom Brady did not let her down. Sounds serious to me.
Maybe this could be the year that the female players dominate with both myself and Irish Pixies having strong weeks.
But the third female in our league did not do as well. The fantasy career of the Michigan Misfits did not start off so well. Somehow her draft did not save her choices properly and she was unhappy with her team. She made some trades but unfortunately she had the lowest score week one. But at least she stayed true to her cause. She wanted former Michigan players on her team. Chad Henne leads the way.
But maybe the most embarrassing moment of week one for me came from my husband. On Sunday he anxiously awaited Faith Hill‚Äôs Sunday Night Football introduction. The music started and to his dismay Hill was in a skin tight leather outfit and not a skirt. Throwing a tantrum like a 2-year-old boy he cursed the television. How dare they dress Faith Hill in something other than a mini-skirt.
But with Seth‚Äôs favorite player, Jeff Reed, currently among the unemployed he had a great idea on how the disgraced kicker could be utilized.
‚ÄúMaybe Jeff Reed could come party with us.‚Äù
I think we have more of a chance of seeing Faith Hill in a mini-skirt.
