Well, there was beer, but thank goodness, no cigars. The guys in my new Fantasy Football league were very nice to me. They were a little tougher as the night progressed which I take to mean I was holding my own.
I made some great picks, even sneaked in and got the Steeler defense. Ray was crushed. I only got one Falcon, so DGS#1 Zachary will be disappointed. I’m sure he’ll continue to advise though.
For those of you who watch football, and I know some of you do—-
The Amazon Warriors 2011 from the Draft
Not too shabby.
The first two picks are elites, and I went for Rivers because all the QBs ranked above him were gone by my first pick. I got a great Tight End in Vernon Davis and stunned the table by sneaking the Steelers in the 8th round. My draft position was 9th of 10 and we alternate 1-10, 10-1, so it was a long time between each pair of players. My Running Backs aren’t as strong as I would like so I need my Steelers.
I have Sam Bradford as my second string QB which is awesome. I took Harry Douglas at WR because Zachary would not be happy if I didn’t have at least one Falcon and the better known guys were picked before I could get them. Same for Knowshon Moreno and AJ Greene who were on my list.
I don’t know one kicker from another, but had seen some good hype on Billy Cundiff. Matt Prater was my last pick and I picked him solely on his good name.
It was really fun to compete with these guys. I had studied very hard and felt I wasn’t totally outclassed. Now to play the season and have a bit of fun. You know, I love to knit to the sound of the snap.
