NFL Kicks Off, But No FF This Year

As the 2010 NFL season kicks off in an hour or so, I find myself in unfamiliar territory:  for the first time in a decade, I am sitting on the sidelines of fantasy football.  Sure, most people think of FF as something for frat boys and stat geeks, but I loved my time in the FF leagues.

I found myself obsessing over truly meaningless and unentertaining games and scouring the Internet for sage advice from, well, random fans like me.  I gnashed my teeth over waiver wire pick ups and drafting.  Alas, all that has come to an end.

After three consecutive FF Super Bowl championships, playoff runs and cellar dwellers – injuries to key players, hey, it happens to the best of us – I am hanging up my FF coaching cleats.  I thought I’d miss it, but I don’t – yet.

Once my ‘Skins season tickets came through, I found myself spending so much time getting to, going to, coming home from and recovering from attending games in person, that I lacked the time and energy to drill down into the highlights and boxscores.  I couldn’t even keep up with which other teams were winning and who was breaking out.

Did my team on the FF field suffer as a result?  Oh, no doubt.

Any regrets?  None.

As this NFL season kicks off, I have only one team in my heart:

Hail to the Redskins!
