Fantasy Football

It's official. I am the last living human male without a fantasy football team. I just don't get it. I'm sure it has to do with the fact that I am a pretty passive football fan. I like watching games when there is a social aspect to it. It's fun to get together with a bunch of friends, get some beers and food, and have a good time watching a game. There is no way that I could sit in front of the TV alone all day Sunday and watch more than one game. I just don't have the patience for it.

It's amazing how far fantasy football has spread in a few years. Before class, I overhear people talking about how their teams did, what trade they are engineering, and who in their league really sucks. They are checking their websites, pouring over stats, figuring out what to do for next weekend. It's strange to watch from afar. Listening to two people talk about their fantasy football teams is like listening to two dorky teenagers talking about their Dungeons and Dragons characters.

I just don't get it. But hey, have fun with it. I mean, it's not a cool hobby like blogging though...

you dont understand fantasy football, because you do not partake. I was the same way 5 years ago, and even in my first year playing FF i was pretty passive, and what is the point...but once you understand the system and how to manipulate and you start getting good it is fun. it makes ALL of the games interesting and it gives a great opportunity to talk trash to your friends. It is a great 'social' event. its like trying to explain conservative judicial activism to a liberal.

Yeah, that's probably it. I also don't understand opera because I don't go to see it. Participation is a big thing. I guess I don't have the time for it.

But the D&D line was pretty good, right?
