Besides Christmas...........FF is big this week.

This has been a big weekend around our house and not just for Christmas. I haven't seen much conversation about it but flying slightly below the radar for many of us is Fantasy Football playoffs and for my league......the Fantasy Football Super Bowl.

For years I resisted getting involved in something I viewed as really, really stupid but I finally relented and joined my buddies. After all, just the draft party alone is decent time.

For the past two years I have floundered around .500 for most of the season and then gotten hot at playoff time and have once again found myself in the Super Bowl. This freaking rocks because there is real money on the line for the winner. I mean real money like 4 digit money for the winner. A couple of my buddies take it WAY too seriously which makes it all the more funny that I'm beating them.......again cause I've only spent about 5-10 minutes a week. Just goes to show you how much luck is if you had Peyton Manning on your team this week. He has been a mainstay stud all season and just screwed you at the most important time of the year because the coach decided to rest him. By the way, Jim Caldwell might just be the best coach you've never heard of right now in the NFL. I love that about him.

It comes down to Monday night football tonight and right now I have a slight lead over the guy I'm playing. Winner basically gets most of Christmas paid for and the loser......gets enough to go an afternoon bender at Nick and Jakes.

Okay, I know FF is kinda gay but if you keep it in perspective it really is kinda fun.......and I like winning money so wish me luck.
