The draft was a pain to schedule time for,
The players my friend told me to go for
Were nearly all taken by the time I got my chance.
Got one and went by rankings for the rest.
First few weeks were stressful.
FInding out we had to set a lineup each week
Figuring out how to do it.
While being nagged about what I didn’t know.
Next few weeks were a learning experience,
Learning we could drop and add players,
And how to do it
Weeks six through nine were kind of fun
Studying the numbers
Winning a few games.
At ten weeks it became interesting.
Discussion started about the prize structure.
Turns out I didn’t understand that either.
Week twelve and my interest waned.
So many things I’d rather be doing
on Wednesday night, Saturday night, Sunday morning.
Binge watching a tv show
sleeping late, working out,
Or anything that doesn’t involve
bye weeks, player stats, and projections.
It’s a family league so the pay-in
will go to a nephew, niece, or sibling.
And that’s okay by me.
Personally, I find real life
far more interesting than this kind of fantasy world.
If I want fantasy,
I can read a book.
Far more interesting
