Fantasy Football

I have never gotten into Fantasy Football. I know it is huge and a great past time for many football fans. Just like my story yesterday on people keeping a scorebook for Major League baseball games, it is a great way to enjoy your favorite sport. It gives the former players and the “want to be” players a sense of still being in the game. This reminds me of the practice of placing your track participants in a line up on paper before entering a big meet. You try to line them up in a manor that gets you the absolute highest possible point total. Fantasy Football teams are put together to score the most points and thus win the Fantasy League title. I used to spend hours rotating runners and field athletes into a line up that would allow us to win the big track meet. Do you double this runner or save this runner or get all the points you can in this event and forego another event so that in the end I have the best chance to win it all. No good coach would let it up to chance by haphazardly filling out the entry form. The same is true of the time the Fantasy Football people put into their drafting of players and trading other players to maximize their point output. It makes watching a football game or set of games a whole lot more interesting.
