As one fantasy season is ending, another begins

As I've reported on here before, I am in two fantasy baseball leagues.  What I did not realize was that in one of those leagues (where my team is the "wRappers"), I am currently battling it out for 7th place in the consolation bracket.  Laugh if you will, but I believe this is the farthest I have ever made it in a fantasy baseball league.

While that season winds down, the fantasy football league gets underway!  Okay, okay, technically it started on Thursday night, but none of my players played then, so for me the season starts today!  Lets take a look at my current fantasy roster:

Tribecards Turfdiggers

Offense:
QB Peyton Manning (Ind - QB)
WR Hines Ward (Pit - WR)
WR Steve Smith (Car - WR)
RB Rashard Mendenhall (Pit - RB)
RB Joseph Addai (Ind - RB)
TE Tony Gonzalez (Atl - TE)
W/R Dwayne Bowe (KC - WR)
BN Felix Jones (Dal - RB)
BN Michael Bush (Oak - RB)
BN Santana Moss (Was - WR)
BN Matthew Stafford (Det - QB)
BN Chris Cooley (Was - TE)

Kickers
K Mason Crosby (GB - K)
BN Josh Scobee (Jac - K)

Defense/Special Teams
Pittsburgh (Pit - DEF)

I lucked out in the draft and got the Pittsburgh defense! Excellent!

The league I am in is the "Super Secret League," which normally has 10 managers (I believe). Well, this year, only 8 showed up. This should make for some interesting trades and adds/drops. This week, I am pitted against "Gold Sox" who had a 17.72-point Thursday night and currently leads the league in this first week. Those points were racked up between just two players: Favre (Min) and P Thomas (N.O.). Wow! We'll see how long that lasts now that the Sunday games are here!

Now, before you start thinking I am some old pro at this thing, remember: I stink. I just hope this year I got lucky with my drafting. Besides, this season, my players actually have clothes to wear!
