Halleluiah, praise Jesus, my threat to withhold my 10 unreleased pictures worked, as the NFL lockout came to an end last week, just as we had presumed. And the first few days of the new season has seen a flurry of activity on the free agent front, which made me think just how some people jumped the gun on their fantasy football league drafts.
Still, all those middle-aged, suburban guys whose dreams of playing football on Sundays were shattered when they threw out a shoulder, or who still dream big of one day running their own team, basically live for fantasy football. And you can count me among those masses.
Now, I’m no stranger to fantasy football; in fact, I’ll be co-hosting with Playmate Pilar Lastra a weekly fantasy sports show on SiriuxXm Fantasy Sports Radio. But during the lockout I basically fantasized over how I would run my own league. And now my time has arrived. I’m going to pattern my league from the television show The League (minus the vinegar strokes; the show’s fans will know what I’m talking about). I lived vicariously through The League after downloading and watching both seasons over the span of a few days.
In my league, I want to have video board messages where I basically tell people to “suck it,” like they do on the show. I also want to have a trophy for the league’s winner, just like Shiva Bowl, and have it sit in the winner’s house for an entire year. Now, I won’t talk out of my ass, like someone did in one episode, because I don’t think my readers would ever look at me the same. But this is my dream fantasy football league. Having all of those elements would make it that much better. I’ll have a few notable participants in the league, who will be announced at a later date.
And to make my fantasy football league appeal to you, the reader, I’ve decided to open up two spots to fans of this blog. Here’s the catch: whoever sends me a Twit Vid of the best video board message, as if it’s a Sunday and you’re my opponent, will get to join. Of course, I’ll be the judge.
But don’t worry about hurting my feelings or taking it easy on me just because I’m a girl. The characters on that show – they’re mean to each other. They’re friends during the week and on Sundays they’re opponents. So if you make my league I’m not going to take it easy on you. Let’s see what you’ve got.
HOME RUN DERBY ON HIATUS
So I got beat pretty bad this past week in Home Run Derby by one of my Twitter followers, Kevin, which means I’m going to take the week off to lick my wounds. In the meantime, make sure you’re on the lookout for the upcoming Playboy Fantasy Football show on SiriusXM Fantasy Sports Radio (Sirius 210/XM 87), which I’ll co-host with Playmate Pilar Lastra and Scott B. Huff. The show will air on Thursdays starting after Labor Day at a time TBD. Pilar was in New York City last week for the 2nd Annual Celebrity Fantasy Football Draft, which included New York Giants offensive lineman David Diehl, Jerry Cantrell from Alice in Chains and a handful of other celebrities. Click here for coverage of the event and to see who Pilar drafted. And remember to follow me on Twitter at @JaimeEdmondson.
