Well, I finally did it. I have converted to the dark side of emo and liberal bloggers. A lot of people have been urging me to blog lately and I finally gave in. I would like to start off by saying, if I ever get carried away with this by using it has a source of venting, writing way tooooo long posts, or talk about controversial topics that would not make it on ESPN, please make me stop this nonsense. The bread and butter of this blog is for me to voice my opinion on sports, bring forth up and coming rap music, and funny shit I come across.
Today’s topic I would like to address the hilarity that is fantasy football. Fantasy sports have given the “has beens” and “never weres”of the world a platform to compete professionally, ameteurly, and immaturely. Dudes (including myself) can take fantasy so serious. Some guys spend thousands of dollars on buy-ins and research tools, and then waste thousands of dollars through the complex formula of opportunity cost (see Econ 103) spending valuable time playing with their teams.
I’m not mad at them, I’m just observing. Some dudes just don’t have anything better to do and some do and choose not to. This year I plan on being a biathlete by competing in fantasy football and basketball. I tried baseball but it is really time consuming because you have to manage your team almost everyday dealing with pitchers who are busy running poles on off days. I don’t even know if there is such a thing as fantasy hockey and if there was I wouldn’t believe in just like I don’t believe in astrology.
Well, I started to delve into the contorversial topic that is astrology, so I’m going to nip this post in the butt right there. But I’ll holla.
