Since 2004 I've done a fantasy baseball and fantasy football league with some buddies from high school. I always get draft happy and join a bunch of leagues around this time of year, but year in and year out, I end up only really caring about the leagues I do with people I know well.
Not only is it a great way to keep in touch with old friends, fantasy leagues in general just mean so much more when you know the people behind the teams. I honestly could see myself getting out of fantasy sports for the most part if that league falls apart. But we recently started to put a small amount of money in to make things a bit more interesting. I really hope it stays together for a long, long time.
