Close but No Kewpie Doll
The fantasy football season came to an end last night with an excruciatingly close three point loss in the championship game. I scored 15 points more than my highest score for the year and nearly 30 points above my season average, so I don't have much to complain about. Well, I do, but I don't have much legitimate grounds to!
Fantasy football is an odd sort of thing. It reminds me of what some comedian said about dog shows "It might be interesting if the dogs actually had some idea of what was going on!" So the NFL proceeds in blissful ignorance--otherwise, Corey Dillon would have stayed in for one more drive (or perhaps run for an extra TD rather than some linebacker who isn't on anyone's team catching two)...and the Colts would have at least have made some kind of serious effort to stop Shaun Alexander from running wild...and Carson Palmer wouldn't have thrown those two interceptions...and and and (I don't sound bitter do I?)...
Anyhow, it was a lot of fun, and I made several new friends, and I'm looking forward to next year.
And hey, I'm a Braves fan, so a loss in the postseason is hardly a new experience!
