daydream football

I'm in two "fantasy" football leagues this year.  It's never really been a fantasy of mine to have a football team with Owen Daniels playing Tight End.  It would have been a fantasy to have him play on my high school team, but I'm not sure it is at this level.  We shall see...

All I know is that we had two drafts this year and I phoned them both in.  I've always been a fan of the bid drafts.  There's more strategy.  You can really show how much you value a particular player by how much fake money you throw his way.  Everyone starts with the same fake money and nobody is mad that they were the last team to pick in the first round of the draft for the SECOND YEAR IN A ROW!!  You can also run up the bids or steal a player late for a dollar.  It's a fun event.  I'd much rather hang out with a group of friends and have a bid draft, or even a traditional draft than just push some buttons on my computer.  I couldn't even be near my computer this year for the online draft.  I had to submit a list and let big blue do the picking for me.

I'm always going to hold out for something having a relational edge rather than just phoning (or typing) something in.  We can drive thru a restaurant without talking to anybody.  We can do our mail from home and most of our shopping.  We've isolated ourselves enough - let's look for more opportunities to interact with humans and leave the cyber world to online predators and the people making funny or die.

Bottom line - I'm sitting Peyton Manning this week - that's how confident I am in my backup quarterback.  Now that's a fantasy.
