It’s my favorite time of the year.

Kevin twittered that the world was upside down because he wasn’t playing fantasy football this year but I am. Ha. Today is my first game. (We’re being fashionably late.) Here are my starters, for now:
Marc Bulger, QB, St Louis
Torry Holt, WR, St Louis
Santana Moss, WR, Washington
Joseph Addai, RB, Indianapolis
Laurence Maroney, RB, New England
Clinton Portis, RB, Washington
Tony Gonzalez, TE, Kansas City
Shayne Graham, K, Cincinnati
and the Baltimore defense.
I am not sure how I feel about having both Marc Bulger and Torry Holt. If Bulger has a bad day, that could mean two of my players having low numbers. Hmmm. (Peter King from SI.com suggests I get ride of Bulger. Should I listen?)
I am sticking with the Ravens even though Ray Lewis is injured. I just need to give the guys a pep talk and they’ll come through for me.
I had Josh Scobee as my starting kicker until I noticed a blurb about him being hurt. Phew, saw that in time to make a change. When did this injury happen and how come I just learned about it today? Is this a sign of me being a bad manager already?
ETA– I just saw the coolest commercial. It was for a toy car running around on a track, like the Hot Wheels stuff that has been around for ages, but this was for girls. It was pink and had kickass chicks driving. Girls rule!!

  1. dang, Jen… you sound all footbally-managery and stuffl. That was pretty wild talk… (in other words, huh?)
    I just watch football. I usually cannot find the ball unless they make a run (is that what it’s called?) and a touchdown.
    Otherwise, I am like a cat watching a dot on the computer screen. My eyes get all big and my head bounces around in circles as I follow all the runners and then I get all excited if I can tell where the ball is!
