Let’s talk fantasy football, shall we? Since, oh I don’t know, about 5 games into last season I was looking ahead to this season. Why? Because my beloved Billy Oceans were still looking for their first win. It took 4 more weeks to find the W. Yeah, it pretty much ruined the entire fall season for their owner… me. I’d show up to work Mondays and Tuesdays with a chip on my shoulder. But Tuesday nights the clouds would clear because that was when players on the waiver became available! Then Thursdays Yahoo! gave their expert opinion on each player’s outlook for the upcoming week. Forgetting the previous week couldn’t happen fast enough (and often didn’t). I was desperate for a win, no doubt. I ended up with a disastrous 1-12 record. Embarrassing from any angle.
But rising from the ashes, the Billy Oceans exploded into the 2014 season with a 1-0 record. A feeling of relief when I get my second win… which hasn’t happened yet. I’m 1-2 now and the ghost of seasons past could very well be walking up the driveway. If I don’t win this week (week 4), the bone-chilling thought of a repeat season will tumble around my mind like a lone shoe in the dryer. Loud thumps I can’t ignore. But my tight end already got 20+ points from 3, yes 3, touchdowns on Thursday night. Thank you Larry Donnell! Because of you, my actual tight end is relaxing a little… till Sunday rolls around.
