My Fantasy Football Team!

We just wrapped up the draft in the fantasy football league I play in. Oh, the stress!!! I usually consult with my friend's husband who is a fantasy football genius, but this year I decided to just draft on my own. I don't think I did too bad. There were definitely moments of tension - like when Mark had the audacity to draft Hines Ward, who everyone knows is MY player. Why? Because I LOVE him! There will be limited action in the Kimmel house tonight...

Here are the players on "Wake Me 4 the Playoffs" (my team name - not nearly as creative as "The Post Partum Bumkickers" from the year after Cal was born, but it still works for where I am right now.)

QB: Eli Manning (not happy about this) - New York Giants
Chad Pennington (also not great) - NY Jets
RB: LaDanian Thomlinson (it pays to have the first pick!) San Diego Chargers
Marion Barber - Dallas
Marshawn Lynch - Buffalo
Maurice Jones-Drew - Jacksonville
WR: TJ Houshmandzedah (one of "my" players) - Cincy
Darrell Jackson - San Francisco 49ers
TE: Alge Crumpler - Atlanta
DST: Jaguars
K: Neil Rackers - Arizona

So there you have it. These are all the people you need to root for this football season! (Well, them and the Steelers in general...)

Not a bad team, Jones-Drew has left my team empty so far, but I know he and LT will pick it up!
My sleeper pick, Matt Shaub!(or however you spell it, the guy from Houston)He is better than Eli any day of the week!
By the way, I found you through Angela's (or actually Ava's) blog.
I'm not some weird fantasy football stalker who criticizes teams from afar.
