Join Team Wringer
Most football teams are temperamental: 90% temper and 10% mental. ~ Doug Plank
We all need a distraction. A little one.
For the last couple years I have enjoyed playing ESPN's GridIron Challenge. It's a fantasy football system that's not as complicated or time consuming as other fantasy football endeavors. Think of it as Fantasy Football Lite.
At any rate, I've established a team and I welcome anyone to join that cares to play.
To join simply go to the ESPN Gridiron Challenge Home Page and create a free account and user profile. Once you have done this choose to join a team, search the directory for "TeamWringer" and when it asks you for a password simply type in "doxy."

Football players, like prostitutes, are in the business of ruining their bodies for the pleasure of strangers. ~Merle Kessler
Well, we needed a RB. I'm not sure how to feel about Ronnie Brown. On one hand, he looks like a good catch -- low mileage on those legs, good instincts in college play, and impressive stats when he was able to play.
A hamstring injury already under his belt. In a league where injuries are getting worse and worse. On a team where injuries have murdered us season after season.
I'm not an idiot. I wasn't expecting a Marino or a Larry Csonka, and Brown seems like a possible break-out. But, you know, once burned, twice shy. What happens when you've been burned for ten seasons running?
