So everyone wants to know what we do as fantasy sports guys. Some people think we sit around all day dreaming about ladies and “fantasies.” We might do that, but only on our free time late at night when we are alone. Others think that we sit around the water cooler all day eating pizza and breaking down the outlook of the backup middle infielder from Venezuela that no one outside of our office has ever even heard of before (that doesn’t happen everyday, only the second Thursday of the month). In truth, it’s mostly long hours spent pounding away at the keyboard and going blind reading spreadsheets. But sometimes it is nirvana, and right now is one of those times.
The Fanball crew was brought in from around the country this week to work on our soon to be released Just Cheat Sheets Magazine for the football season. So what are we actually doing for the magazine? Drafts, and lots of them. In fact, over the next 36 hours we will be doing, get this, 10 fantasy football mock drafts that will be included in the magazine. Point Per Reception, TD-Only, QB-Heavy, 50-50 Scoring etc. The bottom line is that we will mock until our appetites for fantasy football are satiated with a draft for pretty much every format in existence. This is the truly “fun” part of the entire fantasy sports gig, and while it doesn’t quite measure up to being stranded on a desert island with a keg of Mai Tai’s and Rosalyn Sanchez by my side, it’s pretty damn great.
So yes, this is the week you would want to be me – minus of course the fact that I’m single and lonely (j/k). Fantasy sports is never more fun than when you have the chance to pit your wits against like minded fantasy fanatics in a battle royal of fantasy drafting. For that, I want to thank my fellow employees as well as the greatest fantasy entity on the planet – Fanball.
It isn’t always a glamorous ride, but this is one sunset I wish would never end.
