Last Friday night I went to my first live fantasy football draft. Now I've played fantasy football for a few years now, but its always been in free leagues. This league I'm in cost $140 and has 12 people, so its no joke. Playing for a decent amount of money adds a whole new level of excitement. For example, just last night I was watching the Viking vs Saints game, I am a big football fan but I usually don't watch games other than my home town Patriots. I had the Saints defense and the Viking's tight end. It was so much fun cheering them to get points that I didn't really care about the outcome of the game.
Anyways about the draft, it was like I said a live draft, all 12 teams owners were there. Tons of good junk food was consumed and then we began. Unfortunately I had strep throat at the time so it made the night much longer than it should have been but it still went by pretty fast. Luckily I was very well prepared, I did do my homework and I knew the players fairly well.
