{Fan Friday Link-Up}

I'm so excited that it is getting to be that time of year! The football pre-season has started. Guess what else that means? Fantasy Football teams are starting up!

 Basically Me- Fantasy Football Queen, Wife & Mom...all while baking cupcakes :)

 I have always enjoyed football but it wasn't until the last 4 years that I have really gotten into it. I grew up BIG football fans. I remember always watching games (I must admit I only ever watched the Super Bowl for commercials) and I always really enjoyed the atmosphere that came with sports. Now, I am married to a HUGE football & baseball fan and I couldn't imagine a day that we didn't talk about either one. He was the one who introduced me to the world of fantasy sport teams. 

The harsh reality of fantasy teams.

My husband has been doing fantasy football & baseball for a long time (he is old(er then me)). This year I decided to join in on the fun!!! Crazy me decided for my first year to do TWO leagues. I signed up for an all blogger league (Whoohoo!!) and another all girls league (the commissioner's husband is in my husbands league).

What is a commissioner you ask? Basically the person who creates and moderates the team. There is a lot more to know about fantasy football leagues then many people think. It takes a lot of strategy and knowing your players and stats. Questions about drafting to create the winning team? Sarah from Venus Trapped in Mars wrote a great guide here.  Need a few ideas on a team name? Sarah also came up with some awesomely dirty great ones here.

Here's to a football season full of fantasy wins for me! Let the trash talking begin!

Venus Trapped in Mars


  1. I struggle all football season with wanting my fantasy team to win, but still wanting to cheer on my cowboys. There are far too many times these two desires conflict with each other.

  2. We're in the same league so I thought I would stop by and say hi! Umm, I mean, you're going down... :)

  3. Hey hey! Just wanting to pop over and say hello - I'm in your fantasy football league. I'm so ready for fall and football.
