I won my Fantasy Football Pool! It was a fun event here on the CBS Sports site.
I joined a random league of fans who named themselves "A Competitive League" so I looked forward to the opportunity to keep my interest in the NFL by this friendly competition. I was far from optimistic after the draft, not really landing any of my targeted players save Maurice Jones-Drew. The rest of the squad caused me to keep my eyes on the waiver wire, looking for rookies who might shine and salvage some self respect.
The Bucs Mike Williams was a gamble, particularly since as a Bucs fan I don't like choosing "my own" players for fantasy. Betting with your heart rather than your head leads to losing.....
I picked up Eli Manning, not expecting much but better than Ryan Fitzpatrick. Every week I added and subtracted, trying to overcome a 1-4 start to the season. And it worked, but who did I beat?
I have no idea if the Competitive League consisted of high schoolers or NFL gurus. Were they actually paying attention or was this one of a half dozen pools they were involved in? Just who do I have bragging rights over?
Since there is no way to really know, I will declare myself a champion of champions! Of course if I find out the the manager of the Midway Monsters whom I defeated for the title is 12, I may not play again.....
I Won!!..... So what?
