Something slightly far of amazing happened to me this week in the world of Fantasy Football. No, I didn’t completely give up, but I got close to it. What had happened was quite remarkable and unbelievable. For the first time ever in the world of Fantasy Football is a mark under the win column!
Yes, Virginia! I actually captured a victory in my Fantasy Football life. It wasn’t easy, but all of my players came together and I coached them to victory. How did I do such a great job in coaching them you ask?
It was quite simple, all I did, was sit back and let those guys play. I didn’t talk to them, I didn’t tweet them, I even didn’t even watch most of them play. I just stayed away and let them do their job.
Some of you might think I did it the laziest way possible, but this was a well thought out plan and I executed it perfectly. Normally I hear about other Fantasy Football coaches getting all involved with their players, like calling them on the phone, wearing their jerseys, watching the games.
Me? I didn’t do any of that. For one, I don’t like talking on the phone and I can’t afford to wear all these players jerseys, and while I id watch some of the games. I can’t be watching all of them. Especially when I need to sleep.
Okay, maybe I’m being a tad sarcastic here. But wouldn’t you be overly happy after finally getting a win?
Oh, and get this. What do the Fantasy Football gods give me as a gift for gaining my first win? They take out my quarterback. Yep. Ben Roethlisberger, the quarterback of the Pittsburgh Steelers, suffered a torn meniscus in his left knee during Sunday’s 30-15 loss to the Miami Dolphins.
Now it’s time to find a quarterback. Well, that’ll be no fun, but at least I got a win.
