Fantasy Football Draft Weekend!
Last year I joined an all ladies, fantasy football league and had the best time managing my team for 16 weeks. I somehow won (???) and couldn’t wait to start again in 2013.
I’m in two leagues this year:
1. A League of Their Own - last year’s group of 12 girls, we all went to the same high school
2. Femmeballzzzz – a NEW group of 14 girls, a mix of pre/during/post college friends
On Friday night Krish, Bex, and I drove down to SLO (our college town 3 hours south of the Bay Area) and met Tyler, Clay, and Victor at Shin’s Sushi for sake bombs. The guys conduct a live draft every year so they were all in town too!
We hit the bars around 11 and danced the night away! I didn’t fall asleep like I usually do :)
We woke up the next morning with drafting butterflies. You can only do so much prep work, and there’s a lot of uncertainty because of the draft order!
Krish and I went to Kreuzberg cafe and set up for the A League of Their Own draft at 11 am. I was pick # 11 out of 12 and my final team isn’t that great. My better players include: Matt Forte (RB), Russel Wilson (QB), and Jason Witten (TE).
We split a breakfast burrito with tater tots and bacon, yummm… We only had 40 minutes to relax before the Femmeballzzzz draft at 1 pm!! I was pick # 11 (again) out of 14.
I’m much happier with my Femmeballzzzz team! My better players include: Ray Rice (RB), RGIII (QB), and Steven Jackson (RB). I am in love with the draft report card from Automated Insights!
We finished the 2nd draft at 2:30 pm (yes, that means we drafted for 3.5 hours!!) and then drove straight to the beach :)
- 3:30 = beach, nap
- 6:00 = snack, shower, get ready
- 8:00 = visit the guys at the end of their draft (they go all out)
- 8:45 late dinner at Firestone’s
- 10:00 Frog n Peach
- 11:00 SLO Brew
- 2:00 regroup outside of Marsten’s and walk back to our hotel
Sunday we woke up, packed slowly, and went to Breakfast Buzz…
Oh, just a massive mushroom jalapeño omelette to start the day off!
And now we’re driving back to the Bay Area :(
What a goofy weekend – so much laughter! It was nice to see Clay (he moved to NY), and all the other Sleaguers – Tyler, Victor, Sean Bacon, Kevin (roomie), Kyle K., Jake, and Driz
Question: Are you doing fantasy football? Who’s your QB? Who was your first pick? Good luck….
