I am trying to remain calm.

It’s hard for me to stay calm. I know it is only preseason but FOOTBALL! FOOTBALL! FOOTBALL! HOLY CRAP IT’S FOOTBALL SEASON AND I KEEP GETTING E-MAILS ABOUT FANTASY FOOTBALL AND I CAN HARDLY CONTAIN THE JOY AND I AM USING ALL OF MY WILL POWER NOT TO DRESS THE SQUAD IN THEIR NEW BUCS JERSEYS JUST TO GO TO THE GROCERY STORE!

Oh, sweet manna from heaven (if you believe that sort of thing) I love football. It has begun. After the twins wake up from their nap we’re going to have to go to the store to buy 45 fantasy football magazines because I can’t help myself. Normally, I don’t even read magazines, but this time of year is different.

Thank you for allowing me to vent. I’d like to also take this opportunity to predict a Carolina – Denver Super Bowl. What do you guys think?

  1. I’ll second Carolina, but I’m not too sure about Denver.

    And don’t buy the magazines! That crap was written last year.

  2. :) I could go for Carolina at the superbowl. Maybe Pittsburg though? My father-in-law is a huge Steelers fan, so I’d feel bad if they didn’t get close. Anyways… I love football, almost as much as I love basketball (but not quite).

  3. I might have to get me one them there magazines.

  4. OMG. I can’t believe this time of year is here. The football part of it goes right past me, other than the fact that I associate it with fall and winter and OMG, I can’t believe this time of year is here.

  5. While you’re celebrating the arrival of football, I’m at the same time mourning the end of my Tulsa Talons arena football season.

    *sniffle*

    (We’re number one, yay!) 😉

  6. I got my first “Bengals Update” newsletter in my inbox this morning and read every article cover to cover, practically vibrating with excitement. I cannot friggin wait for the season to start. In fact, I have already agreed to abandon my husband and daughter for New Year’s Eve to fly home to Cinci and attend the last regular season game at Paul Brown Stadium – Bengals vs. Steelers in the Jungle! I’m also trying to figure out how I can upgrade my cable to get all the games…or just spend my Sundays at the Crystal City Sports Pub so I don’t miss a minute of the action!

  7. I’ll gladly place a wager against Jake Plummer and the Broncs reaching the big game. Carolina looks like a good pick, although your Bucs may have something to say about that.

    And I think you should rely solely on those magazines for your fantasy football strategery. They’ll work very well for you in the Draft Day Suit league.

  8. I think…what exactly is she talking about? What is this “fantasy” football notion?

  9. Pete is taking this week for some serious fantasy “studying.” The person who has the number one pick in the 14-team office league is here, too. (Pete has 9; I have 13.) They had a long conversation as to the relative merits of several running backs this morning. (Verdict: Pete would take LT. I think that’s nostalgia. I’d take Alexander. The person who actually gets to pick first is still, rightly, on the fence.)

    Pete and I watched the Eagles “game” last night.

  10. It’s a tough call, but at this point I’d have to go with Tomlison. Alexander has let me down in the past.

    That being said – I’d take Alexander 2nd.

  11. I didn’t realize pre-season had already started until the guys turned on the TV last night. We’ve yet to catch Broncos fever like the rest of this city.

  12. I’m playing fantasy football and it’s my rookie year. Do you have any suggestions for team names?

  13. In addition to Sarah being my husband, now I have to think aout Mom At Work being married to my husband? (I have a Pete too!)

    We are behind Denver! Every day, and all the way! It’s a family tradition.

    As for all of those football mags. Isn’t it healthy to have an active fantasy life?

  14. I’ll think of you when the Bucs play. I’m hoping to attend at least one stinkin’ game this year.

  15. Our league’s draft starts in 2 weeks and I am NOT READY! My first decision is who to keep from last year’s team–and you’ll appreciate this, one of my choices is the Bucs D. I also have Vanderjagt, Duckett, Moulds and Ben Troupe. I have no idea if any of these guys broke both legs during the off season. This is what I mean by “not ready.”

  16. I pretty much I was gonna squirt one when I flipped the channels and saw a preseason game last night.
    AAAAAAAAAHHHHHH FOOTBALL.
    At last my precious…..

  17. Frank Sucks says:

    Anyone but Pittsburg (one gift is enough), Dallas (Please), or the Bucs.

  18. Football shmootball. Bundesliga is kicking off on Friday! Also, I’m rooting for the Colts, since they’re from Indiana.

  19. I love the enthusiasm Sarah. Now can you get the rest of the jack-asses in our fantasy league to confirm the draft date? I’m ready to strangle them.

    And Carolina is so damn over-rated it’s ridiculous. No chance. And I’m genetically unable to acknowledge Denver except when drafting a fantasy RB. My guess? Seattle will knock off Washington and squeak by the Giants to take the NFC. Indy will knock off Cincinatti and hold off a resurgent Miami for the AFC title. Then Indy will completely collapse under the pressure and my Seahawks will walk away with the trophy they were robbed of in January.

  20. I don’t see Indianapolis going that far without James.

  21. What? So you’re excited about the upcoming football season? I couldn’t really tell from your post. 😉
