FFL Week 2: Going Easy on the Birthday Boy

Written on September 16, 2008 at 8:10 pm, by Eric Cressey

I lost 112-80 in fantasy football this week to this guy.

No, I’m not joking. Doesn’t it boggle the mind that he can even turn on and operate a computer to manage a fantasy football team?

The truth is, I let Pete win because Monday was his birthday (he turned 12). Actually, it was Derek Anderson and Jamal Lewis – also known as the captains of the Cleveland Browns JV team – who let him win on Sunday night when they combined for a whopping nine points for me.

That’s ten points less than my backup kicker (Ryan Longwell) scored with a five field goal performance as he was resting on my bench – but still an impressive nine points more than my tight end (Anthony Fasano) managed with his goose egg. I was hoping that the statisticians would at least throw Fasano a sympathy points for a good block or signing a few autographs on the way out of the stadium. No such luck, though.

So, happy birthday and congratulations, Pete. Bring on the Magic Man for week 3; Kurt Warner’s going to lead me to the promised land.

EDIT: The only thing that got beaten worse this week than my fantasy football team was my retirement account. Ouch.

    don’t worry about that, there’s worse…I managed to lose my 2nd straight week in Fantasy football with Tony Romo and T.O. on my roster….Oh yeah, maybe it’s because I had the brilliant idea of benching Clinton Portis…haha

    I am so not bringing him cupcakes tomorrow for wearing that crime of an outfit that can only be described as Pete Carroll meets Ludacris. Your only saving grace Pete is that you have outstanding in music.
