Fantasy Football Begins

Thursday kicked off the '08-'09 season of our Fantasy Football league with our draft. Our league is comprised of me, my husband, my two brother-in-laws and six other friends.

I've always loved watching football, that is until the year the fantasy league was formed. That year my husband and brother-in-laws drove me crazy talking about "their guys" during the games (and all throughout the week, for that matter), while all I cared about was what was happening in relation to the Giants. It was so frustrating not knowing what they were talking about so when the following year rolled around I figured I better join them so I would know what they were talking about and they graciously took in a girl.

That year the Christmas Bells team was formed and won the whole thing. (Just had to make sure I threw that in...my blog)

So now I'm hooked with the rest of them and its been six, seven, more? seasons.

In past years we've done the draft online but last year and this we got the whole league together in one room and did it the old-fashioned way. I was too stressed to take any pictures but here's one of me (and Shaun in the corner) that Avery took while I was letting her play with my camera so she would leave me alone (top-notch parenting!) I think my (little) camera suffered...see the white lines?


So, if you have any good fantasy football tips, pass them along and I hope you'll root for the Christmas Bells this season, along with your favorite NFL team!
