Anyone else’s husband become a complete loon when the games are on. My husband just yelled “Aidren Peterson is out?!”, did a little jump in the air, and giggled like a little girl 😛 I swear its either that or swearing at the TV when the guy he’s playing gets a point.

Ummm, actually, I know more about fantasy football then my husband does. lol I’ve had a team for the last two years. DH had a team last year but I actually did all of his drafts and his playing. He still has no idea why everyone is so into fantasy football. It’s probably because my work collegues are into it more than his work friends.

@LGenz: Haha! Looks like our men have that in common! My DH then took it a step futher. He picked up all the other guys the other guy he’s playing aganist could possibly pick up to replace him. He actually phoned a friend to see if he should do it or not saying he “had a moral dilema about Fantasy Football”. I have to laugh because it’s hilariously funny. Then he says “The League would be so proud of me right now”.

My fiance is the same way! But I don’t blame him because I”m a football addict too.. and fantasy fball is what makes watching football that much more fun!
P.S. the fiances are extra excited because it’s “playoff” season for them

@summer7911: Yeah this is the game where it is decided whether or not DH makes it to the Championships.
He’s now watching the game yelling “Yes! Take some more points off the board!”

Is it wrong that I’m a teeny bit happy that DH’s fantasy football team is out of the playoffs?

He doesn’t jump and/or giggle, but he was enrolled in 3 different leagues, and his brothers (who are also in the leagues) call him to talk about it like 4 days a week.

My FI found out after yesterday’s games that his FF team wasn’t going to make it to the championship game. His response: “Well babe, it’s all over. We might as well just kill ourselves now.” Ummm OK. Then I had to hear about how the outcome might have been different if he’d just picked up this player or that player, etc, etc and on and on. He was obsessing over it! I’m kind of glad it’s “all over” as he said!

YES YES YES 1000 TIMES YES.
All I have heard about tonight is OH COME ON ADRIAN PETERSON MAN UP. Or OH! I could have played him for XX amount of points.
I HATE FANTASY FOOTBALL!!!

@Treasure43: Oh. My. Gosh.
I was in the middle of addressing our Christmas cards when my FI jumped up and screamed out “Adrian Peterson is out?! Holy crap!! I need a new running back!!!” And then he ripped the laptop out of my hands and practially had a melt down over it. When I politely mentioned that I was in the middle of using the computer to address our cards, and asked if he really needed to do this right now, he looked at me and said “are you kidding me? It’s the playoffs!”
What makes this even funnier is that a few minutes later he got all mad again and said one of his friends in his league had taken the next best running back just so FI couldn’t have him! Maybe they’re in the same league? 😉

@MissNewYork: That’s hilarious! Maybe they are in the same league, who knows? I think it’s really funny how all revved up they get about it. I’d love it if DH won ($400 would be nice!), but either way, I’m just glad there’s only one more week of this….till next year! I really feel like we’re in the show The League tonight….I love that show!

thank goodness DH doesn’t like football (he’s half mexican, and the only sport he likes unsuprinsigly is soccerr). DH hates most sports, thinks it’s useless, espically fantasy stuff, i mean, it’s fake. really? good for people who get into it..but i don’t.
