Today, I'm a crazed Fantasy Football fan!
Do you see that screen capture of the scoreboard? My team, The Two Two Sevens, is in second place after a major whipping of Jim A's Assasinators, and has the same record (7 - 3) as the league leader, Shocker's Revenge. This probably won't last long, so I'm going to enjoy it for this one week.
I'll be honest here. This is absolutely dumb luck. Every Sunday, Monday and now Thursday, as I'm glued to tube, I'm asking all kinds of questions. What's a tight end? Why do they call him that? What's a duck? What's that flag for? Basically, I have a lot to learn about the game of football. So, when it comes to Fantasy Football, I'm definitely a rookie.
This honest assessment, however, doesn't keep me from celebrating the fact, for example, that my week 10 pick-up of the Carolina defense gave me 21 points compared to my benched Chicago defense which would have had 3 points! The decision to bench Chicago and pick up Carolina was a conscientious decision.
Next week, I play Shocker's Revenge, which has stood at the top of the league since the beginning of the season. He's got a great line-up, and the match-up is in his favor. Maybe luck will be on my side again. That would be trouble! Two weeks at the top? I might start thinking I know what I'm doing.
