My name is Matthew Olsen and I am addicted to fantasy football.
Sorry, just had to get that off of my chest.
Of the eight or so leagues that I am apart of each season, just like most of you there is one in particular that I pay the most attention to. Taking the crown in any of the others is still cause for celebration, but, the premier league is cause for something much greater.
Heading into the Sunday night game, I led my semifinal opponent by a mere nine points thanks primarily to Adrian Peterson. But he had Eli Manning ready to go against the Cowboys in what everyone expected to be a shootout, while I was left helpless because my lineup was done.
I spent the next four quarters talking to myself, the t.v., the wall, my dog or anyone or anything else that I could unleash my neurotic ramblings upon.
But I emerged victorious as Manning was beaten to a pulp by Demarcus Ware and the 'Boys down in 'Big D', scoring a measly 3.8 points.
Life is good and I'm ON MY WAY TO THE SUPER BOWL!
Nothing entertains me more than hearing about bad beats or improbable wins so if you've got any stories to share from this past weekend, LET'S HEAR THEM IN THE COMMENT SECTION!
Why am I using so many exclamation points?!?
