I am in my first fantasy football league this year. And I’m kind of starting to love it.
I didn’t do tons of research on potential players before Draft Day at Hooters. This was not a good idea, because as much as I love football the only person I know by name is Peyton Manning, and as much as I believe in the Power of Peyton, a team does not a quarterback make.
So I had to pick out other players. And I wondered, what is the best way to go about this?
Fantasy cheat sheets? No way. I’m a Christian.
Legitimate research on each player, especially rookies? Yeah. I have a life. Kind of.
I decided to pick my team based on who had, what I considered to be, the ‘coolest’ name. And this was only because I had run out of time to find out who the hottest players were and draft accordingly.
All this fantasy talk, got me wondering… what is my Fantasy Hook-up Team?
My Fantasy Hook-up Roster?
- Matthew McConaughey
- Peyton Manning, John Mayer, Brad Paisley (three way tie)
- The ‘Scrubs’ doctor/Beer Commissioner Commercial guy
And after some coercion I found out Mark’s roster (apparently it’s “scary” to tell me that he “might” find someone other than me attractive because of my potential “reaction”. All I’m saying is that if you can’t tell me how this “other person” reminds you of me I’m probably going to get offended enough to lock you out of the house. That’s not overreacting. Is it?)
I’m not going to share his list because it is private to him, and embarrassing to me (I’m trying not to take it personally, but dude’s got bad taste). However, I will say that Mark has developed a little crush on Sarah Palin (much like Crystal’s husband and 62% of white males in America) because she is “confident”… like a pit bull with lipstick, I guess.
Learning who made Mark’s list opened my eyes up a little more to what gets my hubby going (apparently, cankles aren’t a bad thing in his book, woo-hoo! (not a Palin reference)). And he learned that naked bongo playing really revs my engine.
If you are both sane, mature adults go ahead and have the Fantasy Roster conversation. If you’re able to look at it from a purely informational standpoint (because, seriously, the likelihood of Sarah Palin taking time out of her VP campaign to seduce my husband is pretty much non-existent) you can both learn how to become more of what the other wants and needs in the bedroom.
So dream up something good this Hump Day!
