Proof that fantasy football drives you crazy.

Postby m16a » Tue Nov 13, 2007 4:07 pm

Ok, so I am in my Biology class today, which no one besides me(and maybe 2 other people) understand. Since I get everything quickly and they don't we go over everything a bajillion times. Its annoying. So I was half asleep during class(teacher dont care, since I know it) and they were talking about how in cell respiration ATPs turn into ADPs. And hearing that I absentmindely blurted out, "what the heck does Adrian Peterson and someones average draft position have to do with cells getting energy..." :-b

How did the rest of the class respond? I'm sure they had no idea what the heck you were talking about.

that's crossed my mind before too. adenosine triphosphate and diphosphate (sp? on all). Doesn't ATP release a photon or someting to go to a more stable energy state, and that's where the energy comes from? Biology was soooo long ago.

There are only 2 people in the school who MIGHT know what I had meant. One wasn't close enough to hear, the other isn't in my biology class. And yes, thats the dealio with them scott.

Hey you'd be surprised at who plays fantasy football these days.

My psychology professor randomly asked the class if anyone plays fantasy football a couple weeks back. It was a complete surprise, what would a 50+ year old former (female) psychology counselor be doing playing fantasy football? Just goes to show you fantasy football has caught on to a really wide audience. She wanted to gloat over having Tom Brady who just passed for 6 TD's the day before. :-b

Then there's my classmates who no matter how much I explain how fantasy football works they think it's the dumbest thing ever. "Why in the world would you take players from different teams? You mean the final scores of the actual games don't matter at all? Why would you ever want anyone on the Dolphins or Rams???" They keep asking over and over again... :-b
