Just wanted to give you all an update. I've had several requests for one. It actually panned out amazingly well thanks to several factors...
It became obvious that I'd be going to the wedding for the wedding itself and perhaps a few minutes of the reception. Of course, this put a whole in the middle of my draft festivities and made things a little more difficult for the others in our league.
Our Commish, who is a really good guy, knew how important it was for me to be there for the full day of activities and just this past weekend decided to change the draft day a week later (Sept 5). As soon as he did this, I talked with my wife and together we highlighted Sept 5 on our calendar with black permanent marker as a day that I'm totally out of action. Short of my wife going into labor two months early, I'll be there with bells on and an X-box controller in my hand. Now all I need is to find a used X-box to buy so I can practice up with the new Madden game.
Thanks all for the feedback -- I think this thread hit one usually overlooked component of fantasy football -- the need to have a life outside of the game and balancing both!
Again, major Kudos, as well, to our commish.
