In short, yes. But I'm married. Compromise. There's a price to be paid for my baseball insanity. :-b

It sucks because I was really enjoying this season (3rd place), so I guess I now have to set up my weeks in advanced and hope for the best. Just thought I would share and see if anyone has stories to share about going through similar situations that caused you to stop caring so much about ff baseball. :-D

I bet you went to the theatre to watch Sex In the City the day it came out too :-t

Same way i was when I met my GF two years ago. I even remember forgetting to set my in the first week of the fantasy basketball playoffs. (Arenas went on to score about 40 points and hit 6 3's that monday. And I was doomed from then on.)

But, ACS is right, this thread is useless w/o pictures.

I think I actually picked up Liriano on my cell phone on my honeymoon in 2006 when he was tearing it up as a reliever.

Actually I have to agree this thread is very interesting. I love my wife, after two years I still find her smoking hot.....redheads what can I say they're my weakness.....but she understands that I'm usually coming to bed 30 minutes to an hour after she does usually because I am checking my fantasy baseball/football teams. I understand that I am going to be watching more Sex in the City re-runs and reality tv than my former Sportscenter/ESPN intake....unless there's a UK Basketball game or a Cubs game on, in that case she has to find another TV besides the big screen. It's just a given when you get married or get serious with a girl. Either they're going to understand about your other obsession or they won't.

Believe me, as far as my wife and ex-gfs go I have to say it is much better to have an understanding wife than a girlfriend that bitches every five minutes because you want to work on your team. I'm not saying yours is that way but my exes used to be and it drove me batty!

The next time you're rolling around you'll get to thinking "Oh yeah, I'm about to hit the home run" only to snap out of it and get to setting your lineup mid-... ah.. inning. Gonna happen.

Fine then, here we are on our first date at the Dodgers/Angels game last Friday. I think you can tell from the pic what's been keeping me so busy. ;-D

Also, its not that she doesn't let me play, it's that I lost interest in being on the computer keeping up with my team.

Oh yea, and I blurred the face because I don't want you guys to find her and steal her away from me! :-)

I would never date a girl whose face looked like that.

She does have a nice corner infield, though.
