Getting into the Games

I’m feeling very athletic this morning, in somewhat of a virtual way. I started playing Fantasy Football yesterday with some of the moms from Miles’ football team. Now I know why my husband acts the way he acts during football season. Yes, I got caught up in all of the hype.

We had our online draft last night and jumped right into the competition of the first weekend of football. My team, Wifey’s Warriors, is trailing my opponent, Purple Thunder, by about 25 points, but there is still Monday Night Football so I’ll have to wait and see what happens.

I am also feeling athletic because my first tennis match with my women’s doubles team was yesterday. Although we had to retire the match because my partner got sick in the heat – they don’t call it Hotlanta for nothing – both of us played really great in the first set. I could see and feel a definite improvement in my game and can’t wait to continue the rest of the season.

How about you? Are there any athletes out there – real or virtual? Active moms want to know…

Winks & Smiles,

I try to avoid all sports, real or virtual alike. Unless you count Zuma. It raises my heart rate when the balls get too close to the frogs mouth. LOL.

I hope you have lots of fun and much luck to you on your fantasy football!

I heart sports!! I play softball, tennis, and golf! Plus I am a runner. Love to watch pro football and baseball too!

I would love to do fantasy football. How neat! Go Wifey's Warriors!!
