I was VERY amused last night at the blogger meetup because the bar was pretty packed – with a bunch of guys all doing their fantasy football drafts.. yeah, it made me giggle just a little bit but I can only make so much fun since I’m the commissioner of a little league myself. But I, for one, do not take it so seriously!
After all, baseball fans need something to do in the off-season right? No, the season isn’t over yet but Twins fans more than almost any others, know it’s coming all too soon.
Several years ago, I decided that fantasy football was taken entirely too seriously by those around me who participated. I had experienced first hand how hard it was for a beginner to be competitive in, much less someone who didn’t know football very well. So I started an easy & FREE league intended to allow a competitive environment whether you understood all the facets or not. And then I bought a traveling trophy!
It’s an auto draft league so you don’t have to know anything about the players (but it still always helps if you do) and you don’t have to be a fan of any particular team (it helps if you aren’t). You sign up, & it does most of the work for you!
The reason I’m bringing this up now is that we have a couple openings in the league this year! If you are interested in participating or want to know more about our rules & set up, contact me and I’ll fill you in. Most of the Knuckleballs staff here are participants so you would have at least some baseball fans in the group. And unlike fantasy baseball, which needs almost daily attention, football is only a weekly time commitment!
But make up your mind quickly! I plan to set the league to draft on September 1!!!
