Fantasy Football

Another thing about football(American) season that I love is Fantasy Football! For those who are not familiar with it, it's an interactive, virtual competition in which people manage professional football players versus one another. Basically it allows people to act as general managers of a pseudo-football team. The different actions people are able to make are: drafting, trading, adding/dropping players, and changing rosters. I find it more enjoyable when you set up your own league and play with people you know. My first round draft pick this year was Adrian Peterson of the Minnesota Vikings. He's always a good choice. Setting up a fantasy team makes watching real games more interesting too because you'll have specific players from your roster to root for. I will probably have more posts about football in the coming months because it's a passion of mine.
