I haven't always watched football. In fact, I went to many high school football games as a band nerd, yet only stopped to watch one game. But later in college, I had a football-loving boyfriend so I gave it another try. I chose the SF Niners to root for which seemed like a good match, they were close by and they wore my favorite color. But the boyfriend was a Cowboys fan (a huge Niners rival). Well the boyfriend didn't work out, but football did! Then my football-loving husband swooped in and continued to cultivate my love for the game. I learned about the rules and the players and even played on a few fantasy leagues.
So watching the game last night reminded me of all of this. It made me want to brush up on my football knowledge, as well as learn more about the current players. Because, honestly, since my girls were born (Rebecca will be 6 in October) I haven't paid as much attention to the game. I always mean to, but I just don't sit down and watch. And then another football season slips by.
So this year, instead of letting another football season slip away, I would like to stay more involved by playing in a fantasy league. I found fantasy leagues were a great way to learn about the game and the players, as well as providing a little friendly competition. But instead of squeezing in to one of my hubby's leagues I thought I'd start my own. So is anyone interested in joining me and my fantasy league, the BFL: Blogging Football Ladies? If so, send me a message by clicking on the football on the right (you gotta love a collaged football, right?). No pressure. Just fun and friendly! And if this is your first fantasy league, please ask me any questions you might have, K?
