My favorite football team doesn’t play in the NFL. We (and yes, I refer to them as we) don’t play in the CFL, AFL, UFL or XFL. We aren’t in the Big East or Big 10 and we certainly aren’t bright enough to compete in the Ivy League.
Nope, my favorite team plays in the West Haven Fantasy Football League (WHFFL) and over the years, we’ve gone by a variety of nicknames – The Fighting Danny’s, The Fresh Ones, The Romosexuals and this year, Rice to the Top. Founded in 2002, the league is made up of a group of friends who have known each other since Pee Wee Football. Over the years, we’ve altered the rules, expanded from eight to ten teams and raised the stakes to keep things interesting, but most importantly, we’ve made a commitment to get together every single season to drink cheap beer and draft our teams.
