fantasy football

Hey Monday, 

You're here. I would be mad that I am at work today, but tomorrow is Christmas Eve and no one can be mad during Christmas week! 

I spent my weekend at home with my family and it was everything I needed. All 4 siblings were home causing a ruckus for my parents, which is always fun. I don't really have anything to show for it, but let's be honest, no one really needs to see pics of me in my PJs with unwashed hair.  

Instead let's talk about how I am officially addicted to Fantasy Football and it isn't even my team. Brad's team was in the Championship game this week and if he takes the Championship he wins me 400 doll hairs!!! We're going to the ship! what? We're going to the ship. - Name that movie. So yeah, I might have gotten a little too invested yesterday.  


Here are some conclusions I have made about myself after yesterday's Fantasy Football Experience. 

1) I am super competitive. 

2) Sometimes most times I get angry when I am competitive. A few curse words might have been yelled. 

3) I am not good when I am not in control. I did athletics all through college - I knew at the end of the day I had control over whether or not I won or lost and how well I competed each time. I don't have control over the fact that Brad didn't start Donald Brown of the Colt's and he scored 24 Fantasy Points and then Reggie Bush, who is supposed to be a Man Among Boys, decided to produce a total of 3.90 points for me! WTF. Bet you would have scored if you were still dating Kim K.

4) I don't think I should become a person that enjoys betting money. When money is on the line, I go crazy. Think of all the things I Brad can buy! 

6) I get obsessive. Yes, I downloaded the NFL Moblie app to both my phone and my iPad. Yes, I hit refresh every 5 seconds. 

7) It is really hard to do Fantasy Football without the Red Zone Channel. Since I was at my parents' house, I did not have access to the Red Zone Channel. How do people keep track of every play without Red Zone?! What? Are we stuck in the dark ages?! 

5) I might have to officially join a league next year. 

Wish me Brad luck, he is up by 25 points with tonight's game left and his opponent has two players left to go and Brad is done. UGH.

San Francisco, your defense better show up to work tonight. I need you to stop all of the touchdowns. Maybe give Atlanta's tight end a concussion while you're at it. 

Show Me The Money! 

<3 BB

My brother and dad LOSE THEIR SHIT over fantasy football. I'm talking mock drafts, conference calling one another about it, shouting at the RedZone channel for a full 12 hrs every Sunday, etc. You three would get along.

GOOD LUCK TO BRAD (and you)!!!

Haha I have no clue where I would even begin with fantasy football but the idea of winning money and buying things is certainly appealing...maybe I should learn?!

Austin won his league and took home $120! I was no where near as invested as you… you deserve a cut of that $400!

I'm not much for "the football." I don't mind it as a sport, but I get so tired of the freaking re-plays and the spending ten minutes debating a single play we have to see over and over and over and over and over and over and was his knee over the line or on the line and if so, where was his other foot at the time? Oy.
Incidentally - "We're going to the ship." - Hardball.

Best gif of the day goes to Ross Geller. I don't know shit about football. I play squares on Super Bowl and have no clue what I'm doing. I literally just put my initials wherever the pen lands.

if you win, i think you already know what you should do with it...it includes a plane and me.

I have yet to play, but my sisters were in a league against one another, and it was quite funny to see one beat the other :D

I signed up for a blogger fantasy league, thinking it would be fun to connect with some new bloggers, but most of them never blogged! Since I didn't know who I was competing against, I lost interest pretty fast. I won't make that mistake next year, though!
