Oh it’s that time of year again. I get tingly with anticipation just thinking about it. No, it’s not the crispy crunch of fall leaves or the apple picking or the buying of new boots. It’s FANTASY FOOTBALL TIME, BABY!! I love the gathering of friends and family and the fun little trash-talking that takes place. Or maybe it’s mostly the anticipation of the looks of shock when I blow everyone else away! That’s right, I’m taking first place this year. As I type this, I’m planning out my victory dance.

I encourage you all to try to draft your own fantasy football team this year. Try it just once, and you will see how fun it is to acquire the quickest running back or the hottest quarterback for your team. Plus it makes watching NFL games even more thrilling! If you loved to watch before, you will anticipate the weekly games with much excitement. And, if you have never watched or even enjoyed football, having a fantasy team will change that. I would bet my Arian Foster on it. Well…maybe.

Here are some websites to get you started:

  1.  http://espn.go.com/
  2. http://football.fantasysports.yahoo.com/
  3. http://www.cbssports.com/

Now round up a group of friends and/or family and get started! Good luck!
