This year, we had more players for our league. Up from eight to twelve. More cousins. My sister's husband. My dad's car buddy. And David.
David got so into it. Eventually. He didn't bother to look at players to draft until after the draft had started. He never really had been a football guy. Besides the Super Bowl each year, I can't remember him watching a football game.
But this year, once he got going....
We watched games together. We rooted for the players on our fantasy teams. We razzed the other fantasy players. David wrote ridiculous recaps. Phrases like "rectum romping" and "butt devastation train" are now part of everyone's football vocab.
The season was so much fun. I hated to see it end. But it did.
I thought that meant the end of football in our house.
I was wrong.
David has become a true fan. He watches reruns of games. He watches highlight reels. He watches all the stuff on NFL Network. Every day.
I think it is kind of cute. It is fun we have something we can do together.
And in case you were wondering how I did in this year's fantasy league...
