Subes19: i check it about 8 of those hours
NoRyanAIM: haha
Subes19: while im on the phone im constantly looking at stuff
NoRyanAIM: we're on a monitered network
Subes19: yeah u work for a tough place
NoRyanAIM: but its like adam and eve

NoRyanAIM: very tempting
NoRyanAIM: but once i check once
Subes19: yeah its all over

Boy, if I had computer access 10 hours a day at work, I'd be all up in fantasy. :-b

Sucks to be your buddy. :-o

It's a fun game, isn't it, trying to check your pitcher's day game performance w/out getting caught by the boss?

You just need to be indispensable. It also helps that my boss is 200 miles away in another office. B-)

Fantasy sites are blocked, but early in the day I check all the boxscores, usually Yahoo since I just fade over from My Yahoo, to see what my players did and what everyone else is doing. Takes me 15-20 minutes. Since I'm good at multi-tasking, I'm usually actually doing some work at the same time.

It is addictive. I have to keep telling myself, "there's nothing new here, no reason to check anything, I'll find out soon enough anyway." :)

On some rare occasions I actually look at work while I'm at fantasy :-D

Fantasy sites were originally blocked at work - until a executive VP began playing and made a formal request to IT to allow access to all fantasy sports sites ;-D ;-D ;-D
