I'd rank my knowledge in each of them probably like this:
1. Baseball
2. Basketball
3. Golf
4. Football
5. Hockey


Isn't it against the law to be from Canada and list hockey last?? :-o :-D

I think I played too much hockey when I was younger, so I kind of got burnt out by it all. Over my high school years, I kind of grew to be more of a basketball fan/player, mostly because that's the sport that most of my friends liked, and also because I grew to be a height where I could reasonably do well at the sport without that much effort as well.

Don't worry though, I know more than enough about the NHL to get by in any fantasy league. It's just, oddly enough, nobody I know is interested in it, so I don't exactly follow it as closely as I would for those other sports.

I think this will be the third year in a row I will be playing Fantasy Football. Last year I read nothing about football until the start of the draft and got my arse kicked the whole season. Last year was also the first time I played Fantasy Basketball and I had a lot of fun, I might play again this year, but maybe only one league.

Just do the 2, baseball and football. I consider myself much more knowledgable in football than in baseball, enjoy the sport of football more than baseball, but enjoy fantasy baseball more than fantasy football. I have no desire to try an other fantasy sports.

I consider myself much more knowledgeable in baseball than in football AND I enjoy fantasy baseball more than fantasy football. I've done about equally as well in both.

I've been in 10 money leagues total (5 baseball and 5 football) and have four championships (2 baseball and 2 football). The current baseball season isn't over (obviously), but I'm in first and will hopefully be adding a 3rd baseball championship. I have some friends that have played fantasy golf, fantasy NASCAR and fantasy basketball and I really think it's all about being decent with numbers and staying on top of the news. I don't really need help with the numbers part of it and hardly ever ask for advice, but the cafe is invaluable as far as getting the lowdown before my other leaguemates do. At the cafe you have thousands of ears and eyes working for you combing the internet for every potential tidbit of relevant information. You have the inside scoop to every team here as there are hardcore fans from every team represented here. The cafe is a great place and has very much contributed to my success. ;-D

Sorry, got sidetracked. To answer your question, no... I'm not 3-sportdextrous... but I'm sure I could be if I wanted too. :^ :-D

I play all 3, and I'd rank myself like this:

Basketball
Baseball
Football

Football is just too much luck IMO. Its fun, but its only fun for a couple days a week.

...And now it's time for something completely different:

I'll start up an English fantasy soccer league for Cafe leaguers if there's enough demand for it. It's great if you're looking to play, well, something different than what you usually play. ;-D
