Football In The Neighborhood Of Make-Believe

Well... It'd be a little weird if I didn't talk about the fact that I am one of two out of twelve people still fighting for the main prize in my fantasy football league. I go up against Mark Stuart this week. If I win, I WIN. If not, I still did better than ten other guys, and they'll still be mad at me. Thats a good thing. This was my first year doing fantasy, and I was pretty apprehensive. There's a lot of luck to it, but I did spend about $35 on fantasy football magazines before the season began. I hope I see a bit of a return on that investment.

The Browns are doing pretty nicely in hard-hitting, reality football. I thought this was going to be a rough year for us Browns fans.

Shows what I know. Fantasy or not, I reside in

Let's Make-Believeland a reality. Go Browns

Yay Matt! Good Job Getting This Far In Fantasy! I Was Watching The News The Other Day And I Saw The Win The Browns Just Had. 8-0 Score, Huh? Strange For Football But I Knew That You Were Probably Excited About That...And The Wild Card. Very Nice Matthew :)

Like you, I also am a rookie Fantasy Football player this year. I'm fighting for the number one spot in my league too -- but only about 2 other guys are actually competitive in my league. The other guys (and one girl) kind of abandoned me.

I'm also pulling for the Browns to make the playoffs. Can't let Dallas get a good #1 draft pick. Love to Braylon and Derek.

Melanie said...

Ahhhh.. I was rooting for Schneck. LOL Mark must be pretty good. Didn't he win before? I know he was at least at the top of the heap somewhere last time around. Not sure if it was the last round though. My memory isn't so great anymore. :(

Good luck to the Browns. By the way, the jersey looks good on you. ;)

Sarah Locey said...

Yep, hands down I like your blogs better w/pictures. :)

It shows a less intimidating side of you Tatty.
[Yeah, Tatty. . .(that's not a typo). you know, like Matty and T-Sun mixed. . . thought I'd try it.] :)

Anyways, now if only I could think of a cool nickname like Believeland for my Seahawks. . .

Something like. . .

"Gee-hawks, You sure are Swell!!"

Although, I suppose I should use Seattle, so it's a complete rip off of Believeland. So like. . .

"See Attle Go!"

(Did you get the Dick and Jane book's reference there?)


Haha, I should do this on my own time.


L8r Tatty.

Sarah Locey said...

Man, I don't think See Attle Go!! works come to think of it. . .

Hmm,

what about, Sweetattle. . .?


yeah, I like that Sweetattle.


Now I got to skidaddle, but I'll always be thinking of you sweet sweet Sweetattle. . .

Lol, I'm going crazy w/this but, I luv it. :P

Elizabeth said...

Jesse Penico said...

Although I'a huge Buccaneers fan, I've always kinda rooted for the Browns...cus they have usually been the underdogs(no offense). Good luck beating that one guy! Merry Christ-mas!

Mary Monstrosity said...

I may not be the first on to give you a Merry Christmas comment but that's my fault. It takes none of the meaning out of it though. :)

HAPPY CHRISTMAS!
