Happy Football Day, everyone!! Today the NFL returns, and Mike and I are headed to Atlanta this weekend for anniversary trip 1 of 2 to see the Eagles in action. Like I've mentioned before, our gifts to each other will be two weekends (first in Atlanta, then in Charlotte) to see the Eagles play this season. The "paper" part are our tickets - sneaky, sneaky! Neither of us have ever seen an NFL game before, so opening week Monday Night Football is sure to top the charts.
I know all my Southern friends were far more excited about last week's return of football, but there's one thing the NFL surely has over college: FANTASY!! This year, I have four teams, and as always, I had to come up with witty names. I am always a fan of punny team names with the players' names, but in my opinion, you can't use a player's name unless he's on your team. And no, I do not draft people based on the team names I want, the name is always an after-thought. Soooo... here are my four team names** (in order of favorite names and logos) and a fifth I made for one of Mike's teams.
1. Flaccoroni and Cheese
3. Teenage Newton Ninja Turtles
5. Forgetting Brandon Marshall
(This one is my exception to "the player needs to be on your team" rule. We got screwed by autodraft last year in the first round and ended up with Brandon Marshall as our first pick... aka that season (and he) needs to be forgotten.)
**Yes, I know I am not the only one to use or come up with these names, so no, I am not taking credit for the names, but I am taking full credit for my absolutely awful use of Photoshop!
- Do you play Fantasy Football? If so, what's your team name?
- Anyone ever been to an NFL game, or specifically one at the Georgia Dome?
