My first year playing fantasy
football, I played in a bunch of leagues and tried a bunch of different draft strategies, but I also wanted a goofy strat just to see if I could win by picking players based on a theme. The Green Machine was born. The goal was to only have players with Green in their name, or at worst played for a team
associated heavily with green. All I can honestly remember about the team
is that I had Ahman Green at RB, Trent Green at QB, and the Green Bay Packers defense. I probably had some other Green Bay players, and maybe some players from the Jets (green helmet).
made it into the playoffs and came in 2nd. It was a free league so there was a drop-out or two, but otherwise it was pretty competitive. Ahman had a monster year and was instrumental in my wins.
Every victory was sweet (I'd post "Green Machine, Green Machine!" in the comments section after every win. I imagine though that my opponents thought they were losing to a very lucky mentally handicapped child
