FANTASY FOOTBALL (GEEK) STORIES
Here is an e-mail that I just sent my lovely wife. This is pretty bad considering our 5th anniversary is approaching. Perhaps she’ll think the subject line “Save the Date” has something to do with our plans for that weekend. But I didn’t think of that until after I hit send. I was preoccupied with Cadillac Williams.

…for my fantasy football draft. Wednesday, September 6th. Please ask for that night off from work.
I Love You!!!
A few years ago, I had my draft scheduled on the same day as an annual family reunion. As the date approached, I developed a fever, a cough and a bad cold. The deal was for me to go to the draft and then on to the reunion where I would meet my family.
Neither happened. I stayed home and did the draft from home via phone. As my wife was getting ready to go to the reunion she asked if I was going to come later. “I really doubt it.”, I said.
She was slightly perturbed. “Well why not?”
“I’m sick. If I’m not going to my fantasy football draft you know I’m sick!”
She saw the logic and truth in that. My team sucked that year.
Do you have any fantasy football or sports stories about you and your loved ones? Bring them on. And make me laugh.
