I am in a Ladies Only fantasy football league this season. We are strictly forbidden from getting help from the guys in our lives, which has made for some entertaining mistakes and smack talking. Mostly, it’s just stuff that reinforces the stereotype that women don’t know anything about sports, but hey, if you can’t laugh at yourself, who can you laugh at?
First, I thought the percentages listed about each player meant the exact opposite of what they really mean. Because of this, I accidentally dropped my really good defense and kicker for ones that are at the bottom of the league! Dope! At least they weren’t more important positions.
And here is some hysterical/cliche responses to our league managers weekly wrap up.
Many of us broke out of the 70s this week and who’s to say
whether it demonstrates better karma or better picks. I suspect the
latter. Go us.
In the “I-Got-ROBBED” category the unlucky winner is Ellen. She was the one player who had a bye this week and, you know how many points her team scored? *133* big ones. On the plus side, she does have Frank Gore – who looks ready to bring home plenty more bacon in the weeks to come.
The winner of this week’s “Holy Moley!” prize is Shawnee Barton, owing to her player Chris Johnson singlehandedly scoring *45 fantasy points*. That is a whole lot of points.
hello? wtf? r-o-b-b-e-d.
on the upside, I actually know who Frank Gore is- three weeks ago I
would’ve thought you were talking about Al Gore’s dad.
Ah, how about the “only team to go 2-0” category?? Brought to you, in part, by Cadillac Johnson. With a name like Cadillac, how can you not score big?? And yes, in case you’re all wondering, I do also have the best quarterback in the league, Drew Brees. I’d never heard of him before,and I know nothing about him, other than I love him already, and that he’s legit. Who knew??
And Response 3
I think his name is actually cadillac williams, but lady tores does have a stacked roster…
I love that the one woman is so fired up about her player, but still manages to not even know his name. And who knows that Drew Brees is awesome? Everyone and their dog, that’s who! He’s not makin’ the big bucks for nothin’.
I agree with her though, Brees is pretty cute. In these kinds of leagues, we should get extra points for drafting hot players. It would be pretty great if The Sports Gal created a bonus system for ESPN. Mike always talks about who would be on his “All Ugly Team” in basketball. Next year, I might draft according to the opposite.
