    Mommy Needs Fantasy Football

    August 13, 2008

    First of all, I would like to thank you all for all your creative ideas for the pictures. Bless all y’all for panicking about me possibly doing something awful. We were just looking for a laugh. In fact, I don’t even know where the picture is now. Hmm. Anyway, The Husband liked Mir’s “redacted” best, but that’s probably just the lawyer in him. So Mir is our winner!!! I’ll send you that Mommy Needs a Margarita apron, Mir!

    But now on to bigger and better news. It’s that Fantasy Football time of year. And this year The Husband came up with the brilliant idea that we have a Mommy Needs a Cocktail Fantasy Football League. But that just sounds ridiculous, so we are going to have a Mommy Needs Fantasy Football league. It’ll be a Yahoo League, $25 buy-in, head-to-head. I’ll be squandering your cash by buying ESPN magazine memberships. Kidding. There will be a cash prize for first, second and last. The draft will be online September 1, at 6:00 p.m. What did I forget? If you are interested, let me know in the comments. Only those who can tolerate smack talk and sports-related belittling should apply. Oh, and it’s open to everyone. Boys, girls, non-parent, parent. Animal, vegetable, mineral.

      Can I choose players based on their cute uniforms? Because that’s about all I know about football.

      (Okay, that’s not true. My mom is a football fanatic so I actually know a lot, and may or may not have enjoyed the sport at one time in my life.)

      At any rate, I’ll live vicariously through Heidi, since she will be in quite close proximity to me during football season. Hogging the TV, actually.

      That’s a fabulous idea! A couple of (ignorant) questions. Do I need to actually keep track of anything or is it like brackets in March Madness and once I pick, you just send emails letting everyone know where they stand?

      If it’s the latter, I’m in!

      Dude, you have NO IDEA how excited I am. SO EXCITED.

      now, we all know it is a BAD idea to let me in but would it really be fantasty football season without Katie??? Without me, who will ignore it the entire season and screw up trading? who will win without knowing it? who will ensure someone is offensive to Paul and Jorge? who will cheat?


      i’m in.

      Tempting… but I’ve already committed to my first league within our neighborhood and I just don’t think I could handle two. My husband tried and couldn’t. BUT I will be watching with interest and hope to see weekly smack talk in the comments!

      my husband LIVES for this time of the year….signing up for his fantasy league purely to talk smack on other people.

      I think i try to be too nice for it though…my insults are only mildly funny.

      I would love to be a part of this….ready to smash a beer can against my head and get this party started!!!

    11. De in D.C. says:

      Count me in. I couldn’t get the putzes at the office to commit to starting a league. Besides, y’all are more fun anyway 😉

    12. Mark says:

      Ok, so I’m already in 4 Yahoo leagues and of course I’ve reached the limit. Do you know if a 5th is possible, if so I’m in.

      Did you really even need to ask me?

      Now all you have to do is call me and remind me sometime next week.

    16. Terri says:

      I love smack talk. Count me in too!
      As long as I don’t have to keep track of anything. Pre children I actually followed the game. However, since the children I haven’t got a clue what is going on.

    17. Kerry says:

      Since I already dominate the league I’m in with a bunch of men, I figure I can kick some Mommy-ass too. Bring it on!

      Hmmm… I really don’t understand fantasy football so I think I’m out.

      Fantasy football… is that like I come up with my fantasy team? Clive Owen, Russell Brand, Brian Molko and Edward Norton. Yes, please, thank you.

      I’ve never done fantasy football before but as long as you don’t mind me being completely clueless I would love to. Can I make up for my annoying lack of knowledge with baked goods?
