Every year I put myself through the same hell, fantasy football. I have never done very well in my years of playing. I know a lot about football, my teams just never seem to do as well as I think they will. Every year I tell myself I am done. Every year it pulls me back in.
I am in 4 leagues this year, I believe this is a record for myself. I am a little afraid about this, which is a lot of commitment. I mean most coaches can’t handle running one team, I am in charge of the fantast lives of many fake people. My fake fans will call into fake radio shows and tell the fake hosts how awful a coach I am and I should be fired and thrown back into reality.
I prefer the live draft method but I will not be around for a couple of them. That is fine because part of my masochistic joy of fantasy football is looking at what team the computer put together for me. I remember one year I auto drafted 3 kickers. Yep, 3 kickers, needless to say I lost that year.
I am not the kind to give up on a league in the middle if I am not doing well. So if all of my teams are bad it is going to be a long year and I might be serious about my fantasy retirement next year. I know it is a geeky but I have fun playing it. I am looking forward to football this year, real and fake.
