Confession time: I don't really like football. It's sort of a boring sport, where nothing happens. Half of the game is commercials, and the other half is watching the players get into position while the clock runs out.
Plus, football teams only play once a week. I much prefer sports like baseball or basketball, where the teams play 3 to 5 times a week. Football players seem kind of lazy in comparison.
Some of the guys I know like to play Fantasy Football, which is basically pretending the NFL is an RPG, where you have less control over the members of your party. These guys practically live and breathe NFL, but the weird part is that they don't care who wins or loses a game in real life. They only care how the game will affect their fantasy team. It's strange.
