I'm in three fantasy leagues this year, which may be nuts. One is with Aaron and his high school friends and their wives. I've been in that league since 2007, when I finished dead last (but I redeemed myself by winning the next year). The other two are blogger leagues; one is a traditional head-to-head, the other is a floating salary cap league, which I still don't totally get so that could be interesting.
In case you live in a cave, or just don't care about football (WHAT?!), last night was the NFL season opener. Denver crushed Baltimore, and Peyton Manning lit it up with 7 touchdown passes. And I have Peyton in one of my leagues.
Just to be clear, 46 points is HUGE for one player.
Unfortunately, I did not pick the Broncos to cover the spread in Aaron's and my own little contest (read more about that here).
College football is my number-one-with-a-bullet favorite sport (Aaron's, too). Last week we went to the Ohio State game, and I even painted my nails scarlet and grey. I think today I'll paint them blue and white. Last Saturday was a much better first day of college season than last year's was, for me personally.
Even though I love football season, I'm still quite invested in baseball. The Pirates are leading their division, and this week they reached the 81-win mark, which guarantees that they will not have a losing season, breaking a 20-year streak. This weekend they have a big series against St. Louis. Go Bucs!
Also making my favorites list this week: the weather (it's been absolutely fabulous); the first church choir rehearsal last night; and of course, my new job!
Have a fun, fantastic weekend and enjoy this blast from the past in honor of fantasy football!
