So, here’s the deal. HollyCornblog has got me thinking about dropping out of Fantasy Football this year. The more I think about it, the more I like the idea.
You see, I grew up in a dysfunctional family … one in which Mom pretty much took care of the dys while Dad had the functional part covered.
As is the case when one develops and evolves in such an atmosphere, the temptation to escape into worlds other than the “real” can be a strong one. And I find that even though today, at the ripe old age of however old I am, I am far from the turmoils and turgidities of 110 East Park Road, Havertown, PA … I still drag the baggage with me … and am still drawn to otherworldly pleasures such as FFootball.
So, in the interest of spending more time in the company of everyday reality, I am seriously considering a break from the whole fantasy thing.
Who knows … I might exercise … or weed … or simply BE! What do you think? Ready to join me and HollyCornblog and let go of the FFootball … at least for this season? (And aren’t you kinda pissed at them anyway?)
In the meantime, if you are planning your schedule, here’s what the USWNT is up to in the first round of the Women’s World Cup in Germany … starting on Tuesday:
