Slice of Life: My New Addiction
My addiction? It isn't Reese's Peanut Butter cups, though that would have been a good guess since I have a stash hidden in the freezer. It isn't Twitter, though one could make an argument that I have a Twitter issue. It isn't coffee, though I do have a slight headache if I haven't had a cup by nine in the morning. My addiction will shock and repulse you. My addiction is....fantasy football. Who knew?
I must admit to enjoying talking smack as well. Let's say I talk much more than my team wins of late. Team Naughty or Rice (Ray Rice inspired) started out winning, but things went south pretty quickly. Injuries. Politics. Running back issues. I changed the name to Cruzin' on Back (Victor Cruz inspired as my wide receivers are the only hope I have each week), but we still were having a hard time keeping a 500 record.
This week is the BIG GAME. My son and I are playing against one another. I'm pretty sure the rest of the family will be glad when it is over. He's got quarterback issues that I'm hoping will be in my favor. Of course, I have running back issues. I was up at 6 a.m. checking blogs to find the latest rising stars to add to my roster. I came home tonight to do some more research.
Yes, it's an addiction. I'm not sure if it's a need to win or just something new to learn, but it is taking way too much of my time. Thankfully the season will end eventually, and I can get back to life as usual. I thought that would be how it would go. Then my son decided we needed a family fantasy basketball league. Help!!!!
