So this may come as no surprise, but for a brief moment on Sunday night I thought seriously about joining a late fantasy league for hockey or basketball—god, I can’t even imagine what the hell that would be like.
But somehow I resisted the temptation. Then yesterday afternoon I saw the commercial for NFL.com’s Playoff Fantasy. You know the one: guys crying and sobbing because the fantasy season is over while “you had a bad day" plays in the background. Great commercial—so true to life.
Well on a whim, I checked to see if it was still possible to register—And it is!!!! So if you don’t want to or can’t shut off the fantasy valve just yet, join as quickly as possible. Who knows, you might win a trip to Super Bowl XLIII. If you don’t know the rules, strategies, etc, check out Mark St. Amants article on Playoff Fantasy Football at Fifth Down. It is from last year, so the player names and playoff teams are a year out of date, but you knew that. Rotoworld.com also has a good article providing any needed details to get started. You can find it here.
Good luck, and revel in the fact that you found a way to keep the fantasy jones going for a few more weeks.
