It shouldn’t be any question as far as how much I like sports. Between the sports-related blogs that I read and all the obsessing I’ve been doing over ESPN’s Streak for the Cash, I can honestly say I could carry on a conversation about any sport out there. Except for cricket maybe, although we did see some guys playing a game (or is it match?) on the way back from the northern suburbs today. I wanted to stop and watch, but thought that might be a little weird.
My favorite fantasy season is just about ready to kick off, though, so I’m a little excited about that. I’ll usually do a little pre-summer camp reading about various teams, but since Brett Favre and his fat head have taken up so much of the football news around this neck of the woods, I haven’t really been paying a lot of attention to anything else NFL related. And then I found WaiverWire.
I like football, don’t get me wrong. I just can’t remember the last time in three years where I’ve actually turned on a football game and watched it all the way through. I tend to nap instead. And when you’re watching the Vikings each week, it kinda doesn’t matter most of the time. It just puts me at a disadvantage when it comes to my fantasy football teams. While I don’t go all out and actually pay money to enter leagues, I do like to win… especially when I know I’m playing with a huge group of guys. It’s just funny when the girl wins!
The thing I like about WaiverWire is it’s comprehensiveness on pretty much everything – player projections, stats from the red zone, depth charts, etc. There are some weeks when I need all the help I can get in the fantasy football field and knowing there’s one site that can pretty much help me out with most of it makes me pretty happy. Who knows… it might even help me out in the Pick ‘Em League I’m always in where I find it mandatory each and every year to beat my second-cousin (or possibly 3rd-cousin?) Russell.
