I love sports and I love stats. So it should come as no surprise to anyone that I also love playing fantasy sports. (I did, after all, write The Christian’s Guide To Fantasy Sports) I’ve been playing fantasy baseball, basketball, and football for years now. I’ve won a league or two since I started playing, but it was never a league I truly cared about (which is a nice way of saying there was no money on it).
But that all changed yesterday as I wrapped up the championship in our Rotisserie Baseball League, holding off Geof’s Alabama Slammers to secure the title for my “Prayers For Blowouts” team.
I tracked my team’s performance throughout the season, and looking back on it now, I can’t believe I finished in first. On June 3rd, 3 months into the season, I had 35 fantasy points and was in DEAD LAST place. But I stuck with my guys, made a few key pickups, and 2 months later I found myself in 2nd place. A couple weeks ago I moved up to first, and that’s where I ended up.
I know no one really cares about this. But if you can’t rejoice in your fake team winning a championship on your blog, where can you rejoice?
