Top Ten List

Ten reasons why fantasy football is like poker:

  • Everyone at the table think that they’re smarter than everyone else, and thinks they will win the pot through sheer brilliance and shrewd play

  • We all have our weak spots, whether sooted connectors or Matt Hasselbeck

  • Even if you have pocket aces (or Peyton Manning and LT), it doesn’t mean you’ll necessarily win the money

  • Even if you have the Hammer (or any two 49ers), it doesn’t mean you WON’T win the money

  • 98%-2% means the other guy still has a chance to pull it out, whether he needs the five of diamonds for his gutshot straight flush, or Kerry Collins to throw for 400 yds and six TDs (and no picks) on a Monday night.

  • You can be drawing dead before the end, especially if you’re behind and you have one receiver left and your opponent has the same team’s quarterback left.

  • Most women don’t get why men enjoy it so much. After all, it’s just a stupid game.

  • Corollary: Women that play it, usually play it well

  • Tilting someone is part of the strategy, and most of the fun

  • Beating the Donkeypuncher makes it all worthwhile

Holy shit! You might be able to achieve your dreams!

I was wondering when you would bring up the victory.


Other than that, brilliant post.
