Now. I am really not that much of a football fan... But Tim really likes it and it's a nice diversion. And I have found that the best way to not become totally exasperated with all the football action is to join a Fantasy Football League and "play" along.
Mom, the way it works is thus: everyone in the league has a team. On draft day, each person takes turn picking players in the National Football League (NFL) for their team. They do not belong to the same NFL teams, in fact, having variety in your team is good because if you focus on choosing teammates from a team that does poorly during the season, your fantasy team will also do poorly.
You choose players in many different positions on the offensive team. Your defense is one NFL team's defense. You choose players based on past performance, expected performance, and many other factors. In my case, it's all about appearance. I don't want thugs or people with bad reputations on my team. Tim does massive research using various on-line sites, magazines, etc., to determine who he will choose. I look at thumbnails -- that's right. The pictures that show what my team members look like. Since I was working yesterday, I had to rely on Tim to draft my team. So, without further ado, I present...
CAKE AND ICE CREAM (the name has no meaning. it's just a name)
A few of these fellows seem to have squeaked through on some sort of ability or team loyalty, and it was some hard work to find a completely un-appalling picture of the lad with the knit cap nearest the bottom, but my draft picker seems to think it's a good team.
Your comments are welcome but only if they are encouraging toward my team's chances of success!
