WFMW - Fantasy Football

This is an out of the ordinary topic for WFMW, but I've got a great suggestion for a fun activity you and the hubby can do together. You’ve heard of Fantasy Football, right? That weird thing that men do in the fall that we don't really understand? Well, y’all, I got tired of not understanding it, so I decided to try it. And guess what? Fantasy Football is a lot of fun, and a great way to spend time with the hubby.

Our church has a Fantasy Football league, and Big Daddy played for two or three years before I decided to take the plunge and join in. I did pretty good my rookie year; I didn’t make the playoffs, but I had oodles of fun. Oh, and I won a prize for Best Team Name – Queen of Dirty Laundry!

Fantasy Football in a nutshell: You act as the General Manager of an NFL football team. You choose your team by drafting players who you think will have successful years, and you compete weekly against other GMs in your league with a points-based scoring system.

There are tons of websites out there that help you decide which players to draft; and in what order. These websites will even advise you which players to play each week, which is useful for me, since I tend to over analyze everything and would never finish my roster every week unless I got some advice from somewhere.

For me, the best thing about FFL is that Big Daddy loves it, and now we can do it together. Sundays during football season are spent in front of the TV and the computer, tracking our players and talking trash. And you know, that’s what it’s all about, talking trash with my true love.

So, when Fall rolls around and your darling starts talking about that weird Fantasy Football stuff, say, “Hey, honey, count me in!” Works for Me.

I'm with you- I got tired of not being included so I invited myself to be a part of my DH's group. However, I did win :)! I showed them! Have fun this season!

Great idea! I even found a league on Sports Illustrated for Kids that I can do with my son. Thanks!

I've been playing at my office along with my husband for four years now. I love it to! I'm the only girl in the office that pretty much plays but each year more girls are becoming interested. So I'm thinking of starting a all girls team.

My husband and I do this, too. It is so fun. Even better is we have a party during the draft and my mom and I cook up a bunch of good food, then we draft our teams and hang out afterwards. Then at the end of the year we have a year-end party and give out a trophy to the winner. The loser even gets a small trophy with a horse's butt on it. Everyone has a great time. I highly recommend that women do this with their husbands.
