My buddy talks me into joining his FF league. I'd never played FF before and really had no interest. But I do it because his league had someone drop out the day before the draft and my friend really needed me to play. So I agree. (side note . . . I am now completely hooked on FF)
Draft day rolls around and I draft some brutal WRs. I mean, just awful. They combine to average about 8 pts a game every week. My buddy sees my 0-4 team, makes a trade with me and helps me make a few more deals. My team finishes 8-5, my only loss the rest of the way is to his team. I lose to my buddy's team in the play-offs as he goes on to win the championship.
Well, that was five years ago. I am a combined 0-11 against him!
This year my team is cruising along at 6-0 and he hands me my first loss. It never fails. Either my team completely lays an egg against him or his team has a career day.
