Brett Favre, Donald Driver, Ahman Green. What do these men have in common?
a) All Green Bay Packers.
b) Collectively spanked the Bears tonight.
c) All members of the illustrious Typhoid Bay Fever fantasy football team.
d) Just earned a truckload of points for said team.
e) All of the above.
For a number of reasons, I haven’t been able to follow the NFL games very much this season. Monday nights have lately become the only night I have time to do anything around the house, Sunday night’s game is on a channel I don’t get, and Sundays themselves, once a bastion of footbally goodness, have been planned out and filled with activities until somewhere around November 1st.
But tonight we tried to get caught up on a few taped shows and while rewinding one, noticed the game was on.
And it had Brett Favre, whom I like.
And it was against Chicago, which is classic.
And it had a lot of guys I’m using on my FFB team.
I don’t know if you’d call it relaxing or productive (more on “productive” later), but it felt good to veg on the couch and watch one of the greats of the game.*
