Do you know football? The last time I followed football the Rams were still in Los Angeles and the "Fearsome Foursome" ruled the defense. Well, in my mind they did. I loved Roman Gabriel, and, of course, Deacon Jones, Rosey Grier, Merlin Olsen, and Lamar Lundy. I loved ABC sports' This Week in the NFL show. I loved learning the nuances of the games and about the players and coaches. Vince Lombardi, Tom Landry. Monday Night Football here I come. Sundays will be in front of the boob tube. Not that I have any idea how Fantasy Football is scored.
But what do I know now? Nada. Zip. Zilch. And yet I have a Fantasy Football team and I'm in a pay league. Forked over my $50 to pay. I am such a geek. Nerd. Dork is probably more like it. The name of my team? The NanoBots.
Yes, that is my logo. Go ahead. Make fun of me. The commissioner...well, L's hubby, the Marine, originally had my team named the Killers. I cannot seem to leave well enough alone.
The draft went well, I think. It went fast. We all had our laptops so it was so cool to see who picked who. The quarterback I originally wanted got picked in the first round with the very first pick. Drew Brees. So sad. As a tribute to Killdozer I picked Phillip Rivers and San Diego Chargers defense. I have Marion Barber, too.
I remember playing football in the street with my brothers. I loved kicking the football and I loved throwing it watching it spiral down the street but god help the damn brother who actually hit me. They would get their butt kicked later on.
I'm still looking for the Rams though. Someone told me they are still around somewhere. Traitors.
