For those that think we need more football in our lives, the XFL kicks off in February 2020, the weekend after the NFL Super Bowl. You may remember the XFL from the 1-season-season back in 2001, promoted as a mix of WWE wrestling and professional football. The league folded but supposedly it’s back and better than ever now.
I can’t speak for all football fans, but I don’t think I’ll be an avid fan of the league. We already have football on Sunday, Monday, Thursday, Saturday. And now with fantasy football, I’m just about exhausted every Sunday night!
I’ll tell you a little story about yesterday, Sunday. My fantasy football team, The Billy Oceans, faced the best team in the league. He scores like, a bajillion points every week, so I didn’t have much hope going into it. My team, though, is almost in a must-win situation if I want to make the 4-team playoffs. So he ends up outscoring me by early afternoon.
I take a nap. It’s Sunday after all.
I wake up to find my team dead even, scoring quite a few points while I was sleeping! Long story short, in the Sunday night game, Lamar Jackson gave me a headache and I get headaches maybe once every few years. Not good!
So do I want MORE football once the NFL and college are over? For the sake of my health, I’ll pass.
