So, as part of the Fantasy Mashup loving family, we decided to offer fantasy football gear at Cafepress.com. I already have a fairly successful shop there, Guerrilla Muse, so it only seemed logical. One of the designs I came up with was one called Murphy's Laws of Fantasy Football. (Click the image to read them.)
Unfortunately for me, TWO of the laws have already COME TRUE (more or less.) Although the team owner who snaked Reggie Wayne from me is hardly clueless, it was right before my pick and the rat bastard scored 16 points on me this week already.
And now, my family has scheduled a birthday celebration for my mother at 5p.m. Today. That's right. During the Chicago/Chargers game in which I have the SD Defense and my opponent is playing Nate Kaeding. Yes, thanks to my FFB-playing brother-in-law, there will be football on but only the network game, Whatever that is. Dan and I have DirectTV Sunday Ticket on two TVs (don't be jealous) but it won't matter. I'll miss the last quarter of all but one of the afternoon games.
There's no way to weasel out of a birthday celebration for your mother. The karmic repercussions would be epic. I'm starting to smell sulphur just for THINKING about weaseling out.
I don't think I'll be adding to the Murphy's Laws anytime soon.
SM roster move: (Does it stand for Sunday Morning or sado/masochistic?!!!) I either brilliantly or stupidly changed my lineup this morning to sit Roy Williams (WR/Det) because of Oakland's 2 cornerbacks and put in Lamont Jordan because of Detroit's front line. I will be burning incense and leaving tortilla chips at the shrine of the football gods ...
