Calling all Football Fans

Peer pressure is bitch. I've been sucked into participating in a Fantasy Football league. Unfortunately, I don't know football. Yeah, I know, I was a cheerleader but that was really all about looking cute and being loud (both of which I did with aplomb). Plus I had my best friend, Joann, who lived and breathed football (she won a punt, pass and kick contest) and told me when to do the "first and ten, do it again" cheer. So I appeal to all of you out there who follow football (even those of you who NEVER comment--please, I'm desperate): GIVE ME YOUR PICKS.

Apparently, I have to choose players for my own personal team and decide who plays that week and pay attention to yardage and rushing and--ow! My head hurts just thinking about it. Won't you take pity on the sports challenged? Just give me some good names in the comments section. I don't know good from bad. I just know there are two Mannings and Brett Favre only pretended he was retiring. And I always bet on the Browns because "Cleveland Rocks."

Clearly I need help.

Aplomb - good word.

Fantasy football? Are you nuts? are you going to a draft? Do you have a partner? I would get a partner. One who knows football. Good luck because I think you need testosterone to understand all the intricacies.

Spend your first two picks on running backsthen receivers then a quarterback. Save defense and kickers for the last two rounds.

Stumbled across your blog somehow and just loving it! Hope you did well in FF draft. You will know more about football than you ever thought possible after this season I tell you! I'm a big fan of the sport but never did a fantasy league. Good luck! ~ Jenn ~
