it's that time again. oh yes, tis the season of fantasy football. i think it might be the dumbest thing ever! i am sorry if you are a fantasy sport player but it is lame. let's recap how it works.
1) person spends larger than normal amounts of time "researching" players and their stats in order to come up with a draft list.
2) person takes an entire evening/night away from his/her family in order to sit around in a room "drafting" players onto an imaginary football team.
3) person then "manages" his team weekly in order to gain some status/bragging rights amongst the world of fantasy players.
i don't know what it is, but i truly think fantasy football is stupid. every year when draft night rolls around i have this deep seeded anger about it. if my husband were going to hang out with his friends i wouldn't care but for some reason when you put together the gathering of people who are going to pretend to have a professional football team for over 5 hours then it really bugs me.
i do realize i must get over this struggle and try to look at it as ross hanging out with his friends but man, i can't get past the fantasy football part. fantasy shmantasy...
