Here's a good version of that deal: "Give me 'favors' for the entire baseball season, and I will skip out on fantasy football."

I mean, who even plays fantasy football anyways???

I did that too when I was on vacation, it was like $0.20 a minute. :*)

No, no. He'd need the 'favors' during football season. No time for that tomfoolery during baseball. :-D

Baseball season = 6+ months of action 6 days a week
Football season = 5 months of action every Sunday, maybe a Monday and throw in a bye week. :-D

My wife gives me more grief for doing my spreadsheets than she does me playing with my teams. But I am not addicted, I am only in 16 leagues <cough> I am in 1st or 2nd in 11 leagues, 3rd in another 1 pt behind 2nd, 3.5 pts out of 1st. So I am pretty happy overall. The bad part is I am in 14th in my 20 team league <sigh> my RP draft didn't work out with Foulke, Mota, and Looper. I did finish 4th in my one dynasty league, but I lost in the 1st round of the playoffs. New league and I drafted mostly pitching early. Got Santana, Hudson, Schmidt, Sheets, Lowry, Millwood. Picked up Cain though Needless to say my hitting kind of struggled. So, I am picked up a lot of rookies. Hope they grow up fast.

During the summer I woke up 30 minutes early to set my lineup, check for injuries. Now I have to get up even earlier as i have to get my kids dressed before I got to work as my wife works midnights and isn't home.

Where is FBB Anonymous? :D Since you're doing so great in so many, should I assume most of them are just public leagues? ;-)

She works midnights? Guess she won't be bartering w/ you w/ "favors" then. :D
