The NFL kick-off is about 90 minutes away, and I couldn’t be more happy for a new season of football. I try to get interested in other sports, but ultimately it’s football that I thrive in watching. Not only do I love watching football, but also playing games around football: specifically fantasy football and NFL pick’em.
I fear this year I may be in football games overload, as I prepared myself for tonight’s Saints/Colts matchup, I ended up visiting 7 different web sites to get things ready.
On the fantasy side I have 5 fantasy football teams I had to prepare:
- On Yahoo:
- TJ Who’sYourMama – In my Raidah Hater’s league – this is the league where I personally know everyone and consider it my "serious" league. We do Yahoo Fantasy Plus.
- YouPlayToWinTheGame – In my Facebook Friends – a friendly game of Facebookers (obviously)
- On ESPN
- Dhani’s Bow Tie – On "Broncos Breakin" a random league that I joined to see what ESPN Fantasy Football was about
- Dhani’s Bow Tie – Denver Steelers – got bit by the fantasy bug
- Team Gaudreau – Indianapolis 477951 – this was a result of an evening I stayed up too late and decided to join on a whim
On the football-picking side I also have a lot of activity
- Balderrama Football Pool – Family football pool – this has been a long-time tradition and we’re bringing it back after a year hiatus
- 950 the Fan Football Pick’Em – This is something that a fwe of my friends do for fun. The winner of EVERYONE gets a big screen TV. It’s free, so if you’re like to play, join "47 Lynch Fans"!
- HBO’s Inside the NFL – Beat the Hosts – This is something just for fun
- ESPN Pigskin Pick’em – Another fun one
- Pro Pigskin Pick’Em on Facebook – This looked interesting, and what the heck
So as you can see, I’m going to be making the rounds on Saturday nights, frantically trying to take care of everything. But I wouldn’t have it any other way, I’m so glad football is here!
