    Fantasy football loss vs Cal loss, does it compare?

    Obviously, a Cal game has more significance. However, pertaining to my fantasy football team, I have to enact the same coping mechanisms when I realize that 4 games into the season, my team sucks and the $50 I ponied up(for the 10th year in a row) is not coming back to me.

    Last night I dreamt that I hit my thumb with a hammer.
    This evening after work, I actually smashed my thumb with a hammer.
    You know the real thing hurt more, a hell of a lot more. Go figure.

    #1 rule of fantasy football - nobody outside your league cares about your fantasy team.

    In a week where all three of my WRs went for over 20 (Desean, Bowe, Jennings), my QB went for over 20 (Hasselbeck), and my RBs combined for over 30 (McFadden, Starks), I still managed to lose. I put up 160 points...but my opponent beat me by a little over 1 point due to Aaron Rodgers' 6 TD outburst.

    And I'm perfectly fine with that!
