It’s time to get ready for fantasy football, and there’s lots of good advice in today’s Sports section. Here are a few more do’s and don’ts:
Do study up before your draft. You don’t want to be the one who chooses some big-name wide receiver, only to spend the rest of your draft having your friends mercilessly taunt you about the fact that he retired / got injured / went to jail two weeks ago.
Don’t feel guilty about ignoring your children during football season. They’ll grow up just fine without you, but your team might suffer if you don’t know whether Fred Taylor’s groin has been injured again.
Do all of your chores before football season starts. All of those requests from your significant other (“Mow the lawn,” “Clean the gutters,” “Remember my birthday”) are just white noise once football season starts.
Don’t draft Michael Vick. His prison league stats don’t count.
Bill Murray is in trouble for driving his golf cart through downtown Stockholm, Sweden, allegedly under the influence. And people say he doesn’t do comedies anymore.
The truth is, he’s working as a groundskeeper these days, and things got out of hand during his pursuit of a gopher.
