This Week: Professional American Football

I just had my fantasy football draft. It was miserable. I drafted several players with criminal backgrounds (Vick, Plaxico, Marshawn Lynch … the joke was that Burt Reynolds would be the coach), passed on potential winners, and, worse still, didn’t come away with any good keepers for next year. So pretty much my typical draft.

All that brings me to this week’s topic: Professional American Football. I say American because it’s funny. Also, I have issues with the sport. I’m not even going to touch the concussion issue, that’s not my area of expertise, but I will go into other aspects of the game, of which I have equally no expertise. What’s that leave? My opinion—the only thing you need to make a point in America. That and Internet access.

To kick things off, I'm sharing with you, dear readers, my fantasy team’s logo. The Seattle Two Nads. Crass. Slightly offensive. Darn-near perfect. Kind of like America.
