You're addicted to FBB when...

Postby BostonBK7 » Sun May 02, 2004 3:17 pm

I wanted to start this thread to see the signs in our lives which show we have an addiction to FBB (which many of us probably do). I'm sure we can all relate to each other and I think it would be fun to see the things we do. I'll start-

You know you're addcited to FBB when;

1) You can honestly say that you click the 'refresh' button more than 100 times a day.

2) Mondays are your worst day because not all the teams play.

3) Your mood is based on how well your players do.

Just a few of mine. Let it all out guys, I'm sure I'm not the only one addicted here. ;-7

When your girlfriend is watching the tube and you change the channel to see O. Perez pitch last night against the Brewers. Of course she gets it back every half inning. Did I mention how much she loves MLB extra innings?

When you care more about how your players are doing than how your favorite team is doing, especially when they are playing your favorite team.

When you make up complicated scenarios that you would like to happen in order for your fantasy team and your favorite real team to both do as well as possible one day.

When you yell whenever a player on your team gets out.

When you clikc refresh pretty much every minute in hope of new stats.

When you pray to God that a team doesn't put their closer in because he is on your opponents team.

Sean Tracey has my apologies, we all know Ozzie Guillen is an idiot. I'm rooting for you!

You root against your hometown team extending their lead past 3 runs because you own their closer.

[quote="Spartans Rule"]You root against your hometown team extending their lead past 3 runs because you own their closer.[/quote]
Same here and it pains me to root against my Yankees, but there are some sacrifices you gotta make for your fantasy team.
I know I am addicted to fantasy baseball when I lay awake at night and think about trades...and it is only the first week of April.
I am very superstitious too. I don't like to watch my players on TV, I don't want anyone to tell me what my players did. I only like to find out by myself when I log on to the Stattracker every night.
When I look at the Stattracker, I always reveal the stats to myself one category at a time by covering up the screen and slowly pulling my hand back. All superstition. I stay up late at night talking about guys like Vogelsong and Affeldt. And, it is even worse for football. I only play baseball and football fantasy, but I am flat-out addicted.
