fantasy football

My husband finally has time to be a football (U.S. style) fan for the first time in years. I came home last night to the sound of a pregame show. Surprisingly, it was a very comforting noise.

Now he's part of a fantasy football league, which is a clever way to get football fans obsessed with ALL the teams instead of just the home team. The biggest downside is that now we have to cheer for Randy Moss, the world's most abhorrent professional athlete. And yes, that is saying a lot.

My husband is a "real" football (also known as soccer) fan. We've neve liked or understand American football, and there's no grace or beauty in it.

US Football? Soccer? No. Cricket in the summer and rugby in the winter. All other sport is just an excuse to drink beer and avoid chores. (ahh, I see his point).

Oh, and woo, you can fit your treadmill where the sun don't shine.

Randy Moss may be a dope-smoking, amoral crybaby, but he doesn't even crack my top five most abhorrent athletes:

5) Ricky Williams: Quits the team just as training camp starts last year, rather than face drug suspension.

4) Onterrio Smith: anyone who carries around a fake penis for anything other than sex is just disgusting

3) Barry Bonds: Interesting how his knee goes bad just after MLB gets tougher on steroids.

2) Terrel Ownes: Check out The Dude From Philly's Blog for an in-depth bashing of this nutjob.

1) Rafael Palmero

I'd still take him over TO. At least Randy keeps the problems off the field, mostly.

Hey! Randy is your distraction now, not ours!!!!!

I do have to agree with BP, Randy is not the biggest creep in the biz, just note worthy. The shame about Randy is he had the chance to be mentored by one of the classiest pro recievers ever, Chris Carter. Randy obviously was not paying attention.

Ok, I give up. There are lots of abhorrent professional athletes out there. Why can't they all be nice boys (and girls) who make soup commercials with their moms?
