Fantastical Update

So since you know all about my fantasy football team, I feel I have to keep you updated on all team changes. As of today, we are 2-3. One of those loses is really a tie. But league rules dictate that in the event of a tie, the score includes bench points. On that particular weekend, 5 of my players had bye weeks. The score of the remaining three was not enough to win. Unfair? Yes. But those are the rules.

We've also had some changes to our roster. Chris Simms is out because he had an emergency splenectomy. I replaced him at first with Trent Green, hoping he would recover from his supposed concussion but earlier today I read that he's still out. So in a panic, I recruited Matt Leinart. I don't think it was a bad choice.

Also, we traded DeShaun Foster for Jamal Lewis. It was a proposal from another team. It seemed reasonable, so we accepted it. So welcome to the team boys!

At this very moment, I am fighting to be 3-3. But the Kansas City defense went and lost four points. Now it's up to Arizona Quarterback Matt Leinart to extend my lead. My fantasy Leinart is playing fantasy Rex Grossman, just like the real Leinart is playing the real Grossman Monday night. But I have little hope, and left me tell you why. I just have Leinart to play. My opponent has Grossman AND Anquan Boldin, who happens to play on the same team as Leinart. So you see, even if Leinart does do well, Boldin will probably do well too.

But the Two Girls are still in the fight. I'll keep you updated.
