December 27th, 2008The Captive Lion
There’s a good reason I haven’t been posting on this blog. For the last 4 months, I’ve been checking my fantasy football stats, changing my lineup, and watching ungodly amounts of football on TV. There is a game on Thursday, sometimes Saturday, Sunday, and Monday. It’s perfect because I didn’t want to have a life anyway.
It’s like it’s 1990 and I’m collecting baseball cards again. Instead of Topps, Donruss, and Upper Deck, I’m on CBS Sportsline, ESPN, and Yahoo reading up on every player no matter if they are a starter or just a worthless common. I’m always scouting the next flyer I need to grab off the waiver wire. I hated football growing up as a kid (they called me a “skater fag”), but now I can tell you who every player is on every team. Living in New York, I’ve got the Super Bowl champion Giants and Brett Favre in my backyard now. I wish I had his rookie card!
This year, I got roped into being the commissioner of our fantasy football league and I took my duties very seriously. And now that the season is over, I am going the extra mile. I’ve once again enlisted the musical genius of Jon Solo (the Virtual Solos, in FF lingo) to lay down a hot beat so we could bust the ultimate fantasy football rap. Hut hut hike!
Big shout out to all the dudes in the Bloody Sunday League!
Hollywood, CheesyPoofs, The Seachickens, J Mac Attack, Juicy Ju-Boys, U.S. Kids, Hong Kong Phoey, Zack Attack, Dyks on Byks, Colt 45′s!
Next year’s draft is right around the corner!
Commish and Virtual Solos over and out.
