This weekend I had my fantasy football draft. I drove all the way to Lakeland for the fourth year in a row for this thing. A good league with a live draft and a guaranteed roster spot is like gold. I can’t find enough people in Tampa to start my own league and all the existing leagues are always full.
Let me get this out in the open. I had the fourth pick, and I’m not sure why I didn’t take Payton Manning.
So, because I am a glutton for punishment – and I know my guy friends are going to tear my picks apart, like they do every year, here is my team:
LaBrandon Toefield (because Fred Taylor gets hurt every year)
(Marvelous) Marvin Harrison
Mike Vanderjagt (can’t get enough of those Dungy kickers, and I spelled his name without looking)
New England (D)
So, unlike the guy in my league that drafted fellow UCF alumnae, Daunte Culpepper, as the seventh overall selection, while Manning was still available, I feel pretty good about my team. (That guy also took Kurt Warner in the 4th round and Keenan McCardell in the 5th – I think he may have stopped watching football for the last two years).
p.s. Spell checking this post was a mistake. It took ten minutes. What do you mean LaBrandon is not a word?
