Football Season is Here!

I have been waiting for this day for 8 months.  College football season has started again! Last night Vandy played South Carolina in the first SEC game and the Gamecocks won, but only because the refs were calling the game in their favor.  Either Vandy has improved by 100% (exaggeration) or South Carolina is not as good as everyone has predicted.  I am going to invest in the latter of the two…

I also survived my first live NFL Fantasy Draft.  I was a little nervous about this adventure.  I actually paid to join a league with a few friends and studied possible players.  I am ashamed to admit I have studied football players more than Cell, Organic, and Biogeorgraphy combined.  Well, at least this league pays money if you win…

Here is what I ended up drafting each round:
1st:  Aaron Rodgers QB GB
2nd:  Maurice Jones-Drew RN JAC
3rd:  Stephen Gostkowski K NE
4th:  49ers DST SF
5th:  Brandon Pettigrew TE DET
6th:  Willis McGahee RB DEN
7th:  Pierre Garcon WR WAS
8th:  Lance Moore WR NO
9th:  Owen Daniels TE NO
10th: Ben Roethlisberger QB PIT
11th: Steelers DST PIT
12th: Santonio Holmes WR NYJ
13th: Mikel Leshoure RB DET

I think I did ok, considering it was a 12 member draft.

Evan also is in the football spirit.  I was pretty excited about the announcement of the gray jerseys, mainly because my red headed child would look good in the color scheme.  I may be a hardcore football fan, but I am still a woman…
