Springfield resident Ty Grassley had been in a few fantasy leagues before. “But they were all with dudes I worked with and I never really cared that much,” the self-described mid-level football fan explained.
“This year I was going to start an awesome league with my friends and have a for real draft and all, but you know, I just never got around to it,” Grassley lamented.
“I just kept thinking ok, ok, it’s still just preseason. I still have time. I’ll e-mail everybody tomorrow and get it set up. And then the opening game with the Cowboys and the Giants was on TV and I knew I blew it.”
Grassley explained that he “probably won’t start a league next year because fantasy football sucks anyways.”
Ty Grassley just e-mailed me. He said he was just trying to look tough earlier and that he will pursue his dream of starting a fantasy league next year.
