I am a female football fraud. By the end of the 2010 season, I plan to go from a talker to a knower and crush the game predicting competition. Why do I call myself a fraud? Click here to find out!

Fantasy Draft - Mmmm, Wings

Despite my husband's insistance that I would be great at fantasy football, my doctoral studies put a crimp in adding extracirrucular activites. However, I am not able to resist a trip to BW3s, so I loaded up some reading and went with him to the neighorborhood draft party.

The look of restrained panic on the guys' faces when we walked over the the draft table was adorable. It was as if they were thinking "Oh no - she is going to ask a bunch of dumb questions and try to talk about shoes or fashion or some other wifey topic!" Sensing I would harsh their man-time-mellow, not to mention hubs was giving me that 13-year-old-with-his-mother-out-in-public look, I high tailed it over to the bar where I watched 2 college games and a Yankees matchup, was given a double order of wings "by accident" (wink from the server), finished 2 chapters of epidemiology, and had a lovely chat with the other folks at the bar.

For the record, I found this entire thing amusing - I routinely kick him out of ladies night so I figure it is fair payback if I really wanted to care. Which I don't.

The rest of preseason has been a bit of a yawn. Brett Favre is back and that is just ducky, but I just hope he actually makes it to the end of the season. Or September. Tebow was sent a clear message when Orton was given a totally unnecessary 1-year contract that he was not the number one guy, and I feel that is good to keep his ego in check and his practice strong. Revis is still holding out and I think that is awesome. The Jets cutting people to try and broker a deal with him is malicious and calculated scapegoating - I hope he calls them out on it and gets bought by cornerback-short Dallas. Chad 8-5 scored some coolness points by admitting his ear-bling is from Claires rather than have 100K shoved in his lobes - this is a guy who is keeping his money. And Big Ben gets 6 game suspension reduced to 4 as promised for "good" behavior - but with all of this time about to be on his hands, I can't help but wonder what drama is forthcoming.

T-4 days!
