Sweet, Sweet Fantasy Baby

Ladies and Gentlemen, a little background for you all. Last year it became official, Tony Romo of the Dallas Cowboys (NFL team) became my arch nemisis due to us sharing the same birthday. It was decided by me, that one of us cannot survive with the other one living, how very Voldemort/Harry Potter of us, right? Sidenote, I seriously need a real life Ron Weasley in my life. Anyhow, tonight due to all the fun NFL free agent-craziness my husband and I got to talking and it went a little something like this:

Me: Did you see where McNabb was going? F#$king Minnesota!
Him: That was expected. There was talk of that.
Me: Did you also see they got rid of Haynesworth? (background: I grew up in DC, am an avid Redskin fan, do not judge).
Him: To the Patriots, he will do great there.
Me: What? He was horrible last year!
Him: That is because (insert my husband having to tell me this again) he plays a 3/4 defense and was asked to play a 4/3 instead (side note, he is not positive the Patriots play a 4/3 but who I am to call that out).
Me: Well that shows signs of a player who refuses to adapt.
Him: That shows signs that Shanahan (Redskin coach) is crazy.
Me: True. I don't defend him. But still, the Redskins had a big day. Plus did you see Hasselback is going to the Titans?
Him: I did. Why did Seattle get rid of him?
Me: I don't know, or really care. Now onto Matt Leinart, he is staying somewhere, in the South maybe.
Him: No, he's a back-up for Schaub in Houston.
Me: No, he is not in Arizona. He is in the South area, like Texas, Jacksonville, something.
(turns out he is with Houston, KB 0, MB 1).
....This conversation lasts quite awhile. It turns into me in awe that the Giants might take Plaxico Burress back, how Reggie Bush is going to Miami and that once again, Tony Romo will be over-rated.

The end result after a ten minute debate on Tony Romo being over-rated turned into my husband challenging me to participate in Fantasy Football this year. At first I was unsure of what to think, but after another glass of wine I was in. I thought it would just be him against me, but I was told at least ten other people would be in our fantasty league and it would involve some money. I am in! In conclusion, I am going to be playing Fantasy Football for the first time ever this coming season. I am not going to lie, I think i have a chance. I mean for the last two years I have dominated the NCAA tournament bracket pools I have been in, it kind of has to be the same right? I know enough about football to sustain a conversation about the going-ons with Reggie Bush, Tim Tebow, McNabb and Ocho Cinco to get me this far, right? I am just saying, if you are a betting man, bet on Mrs. Baum to kick Mr. Baums Fantasy Football ass.
