What do we learn from Fantasy Sports?

I may have accidentally picked up some habits from spending so much time on fantasy sports that have helped me else outwhere, but I cant really pinpoint something specifically.

Very coincidental that you should bring this up. I've been shopping for a used car, and today I realized my negotiating skills are much better than they used to be. Why? Practice negotiating trades for fantasy leagues. ;-D I'm MUCH better haggling for a bargain due to my dealings with other owners. I'm more confident and I actually look forward to the negotiation process.

I've learned that drafting Prior, Wood, and Harden in most my leagues this year was not a good idea. :-D

I've learned that people hate churning and that a virtual trophy is worth nothing compared to bragging rights. :-D

I've learned that there is yet another thing I can do on my computer that I find more compelling than work.

When I first started reading that article, I was expecting the researchers to present some pretty interesting data. However, that is one of the weakest articles I've read in a while. Thanks :-t .

One initial finding: A woman who knew little about baseball said her participation in a fantasy baseball league has led her to become more of a fan of the game, and she now listens to games on the radio.


Wow! What a find!!!!! If a person decides to start following baseball, they will like it more? That's pretty crazy.

Yeah that article was pretty pathetic. It basically said nothing of interest.

What have I learned from fantasy sports? That I am way too into sports. :-b
