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

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!
