Plus there was this infomercial I watched about that time as well. Probably the only one I've ever watched, but it showed how to multiply two-, three- and four-digit numbers in your head. I've been doing that ever since.
I'm good at doing math in my head. I've always been a science/math guy, though. Writing is a different story. Even though I'm not a very good writer, I'm at least smart enough to recognize good writing when I see it.
Fantasy Baseball would actually be a much better teaching tool than fantasy football because a lot of the statistics are derived making them harder to figure out. Of course most kids hate baseball, so it probably wouldn't go over as well.
