Fantasy Football Causes Stress

September 17, 2006

Both this week and last week, watching the Giants game, caused me stress.

The problem is that two key players on my Fantasy Football team are playing against the Giants. Last week, it was Colts quarterback Peyton Manning (who still has the best player commercials on TV), and this week it’s Eagles running back Brian Westbrook. I want them both to have good games for my fantasy team, but I want them to have bad games so the Giants can win.

It’s a very weird sensation when Westbrook carries the ball, because I’m yelling at the TV, “Give him five more yards, then tackle him, and whatever you do, don’t injure him!”.

I may have to stop this fantasy football thing, because it’s killing me.
