So you may have heard about the big television event over the weekend. No, not the MTV VMA's. I haven't even watched my Tivo'd taping of that yet. It's getting harder to watch it because I know fewer and fewer artists, and I get tired of watching Kanye get attention for anything. If any of you recapped it or want to recap it, let me know and you can guest post it.
The big event I'm talking about was the opening of the NFL season for most of the teams. Sorry, Australia, I know our American football is for pansies, but we still like it. And with the opening of the season comes fantasy football, which I've written about before. I'm in two leagues- one with college friends, another led by a former co-worker who is now an ESPN columnist. I'd tell you more about my teams, but guys talking about their fantasy teams is the ultimate anti-aphrodisiac. I'm getting flaccid just thinking about it.*
* Flaccid is such a funny word.
Most of my readers, I'm guessing, could care less about fantasy football. But what if I were to suggest a new version of the game called Wild ARS's Fantasy Reality? Anyone can play as long as you are living. Want to play? It's simple.
You don't need a draft. You're the only person on the team. "Crap!," you think. "I'm terrible at reality! Can't I sign a free agent?" No, unfortunately, you can't, as what you are requesting is cloning and that's not legal in most countries. You can, however, hire a life coach. Good coaching is the key to any fantasy victory.
Now on to the points. In fantasy football, team owners get various points based on how players on their teams perform. If Adrian Peterson of the Vikings gets 100 rushing yards and a touchdown, I get 16 points, for example, while Adrian Peterson most likely gets laid when he gets home.
But in Wild ARS Fantasy Reality, you can't get points for rushing yards, because at no point in your day will you find yourself on a grass field with sequential numbers and evenly spaced dividing lines. And the only touchdowns you score are in the bedroom (we'll get to that later).
So how do I score points, Andy?
Let me know if you've scored any points this week. And if there are any points categories you feel need to be added, by all means, let me know. I wouldn't want you to miss the opportunity to score points in Fantasy Reality, the game where life is better because there's a quantifiable goal (patent pending).
