Perhaps you may have wondered why my tag line is “Life, love, faith and Football”. Well wonder no longer. With football season fast approaching I felt I should perhaps enlighten you. Football is an obsession around here. We plan our weekends around important games. Laptops, computers, iPads and more are set up around the house to track stats and plays. We feed, entertain and yell at the t.v. while games are on. I miss my Sunday naps to watch my beloved Patriots play. Its serious stuff around here.
After many sleepless nights I (along with others I am sure) breathed a sigh of relief when the labour negotiations finally settled. I’m a bit of a football nut and it’s all my husbands fault. Since we got married he’s dragged me into this mess. He watched, got me interested, invited me into a fantasy league and now I’m part of the problem. There is madness in our house from September to February but I have to say it brings with it a lot of fun.
Our fantasy draft is scheduled for next Thursday. I know how it will go. Players I need will be stolen from me. I will be forced to pick up players I hate. My lists and strategy will go straight out the window as each of us fights for the best team. It should be a good time!
As I prepare for the draft and think about my ideal team I’ve been forced to deal with the fact that ‘Ochocinco’ is now on my team. All I can say is it’s going to be an interesting season.
