Fantasy Football - Christian League Anyone?

It is heading into that glorious season of fall. The air gets crisp, the trees explode in vibrant colors. It is time for pumpkin pie, eggnog, and cuddling up on the couch with your gal at your side.

Oh, did I forget to mention FOOTBALL!

I have some international readers, and I know that football = soccer to them. Trust me, I love the beautiful game. But there is something about that oblong brown pigskin that gets my blood pumping. My favorite team is the Dallas Cowboys. I know, love 'em or hate 'em, there's no in-between. I've been a fan for 25+ years, so I've suffered and cheered (but no one knows suffering like a Philly sports fan, right Mark?)

Anyway, some family and friends have a fantasy football league we play through Sportsline. However, we could use a few more players to fill out a 12 team league. If you love football or just want to try out this crazy fantasy thing, leave a comment and I'll get you the information. We have fun, doing trash talk in a Christian way ("Dude, your team needs deliverance!")

Are you ready?

Are you ready for some football?


  1. I don't think a Dallas fan truly knows the meaning of the word "suffering". I'll have to use my fantasy team to teach you. ;) So have you officially set up the league yet?

    If you want to see a team that truly suffers, look at the teams that have had Wade Phillips as head coach. Oh, wait...

  2. Mark, you *know* that some of that was put in there for your benefit, right? And Wade Phillips never had the talent that he has now perhaps? Just a thought...

    I haven't started the league yet because I'm hoping we can recruit a few more peeps. I'll probably launch at the end of July so we can scout talent during pre-season (and avoid drafting an injured player!)

  3. I figured that out. I'm not as dumb as I look...

    Just figured I'd start the trash-talking early.

  4. Do you still have openings?

  5. Mocharains,

    Why yes we do have a couple slots left. You can email me at jediqb (at) gmail (dot) com and I will get you set up with the information.
