Your Fantasy Girl


By H.Lawrie

Sept 20,2014(ISN) – Fantasy Football runs my weekends, and my Thursdays, and my Mondays. Fantasy football uses my cell

data and kills my phone battery, dominates my PVR and it’s only 3 weeks in.

For the 2013NFL season I will admit I struggled to catch many of plays even with my boyfriend and his

pals trying to explain them to me. But I slowly caught on and could tell you the difference between

Reggie Bush and Reggie Wayne, even prior to their legal scandals. I could tell you that having Tony Romo

on your Fantasy team often proved more Fantasy dream crushing drama than he might be worth in

points. But it wasn’t until this 2014 NFL Season that I got my own Fantasy Team and felt the hot rush of

victory over my opponent in week 2, that I became a real fan.

For those of you girls who sit by your spouse and watch seemingly endless hours of Fantasy each week,

while mostly flipping through Pinterest on your IPad, you may want to consider making a team. Yahoo

Fantasy is easy as pie. So easy in fact, you should be made fun of for not noticing an injured player on

your roster. They practically spell it out for you. If you get your own Fantasy team the draft alone will

help explain the positions too you and you can finally join in the outraged shouting when Drew Brees

gets sacked.

Never underestimate the amount of dedication it takes to run a Fantasy team. There’s a reason your

boyfriend can relay rushing yards scored by a running back from the 49ers. Boys are on it like skis on

snow. I owe my 2 week fantasy winning streak to the men in my life and as long as I am not in their

league they hand me NFL advice on silver platter.

While my league may have been last minute and free, I still take it to heart. This week I’m

playing ‘Jacob’, and am projected to win 99.74 to 74.64. Pray for Marshawn Lycnh’s back for me. While

he’s officially listed as probable for play this week, I’d much rather a 100% confirmation. This is one

fantasy that could come true!
