Me and Smitty went to 97.1's fantasy football convention today. They promised us fantasy football talk and prizes. Though we showed up 2 hours late, alas we came home with no prizes. There was about 1 hour of lions talk, which is actually kind of boring. Then we did get an hour of Mike Valenti who looks totally different in person than this guy. Mike Valenti? Or the Devil?

We listened to Mike talk to a yahoo expert, which is pretty sweet. I usually hang on to their every word for advice. Anyway I got bored and challenged Mike to a 50 on 50 fantasy football draft. I said I would keep track and I will.

Yahoo Default scoring.
No pick ups/drops. Injuries tough luck, though neither of us drafted Brett Farve or Ronnie Brown(who averages 12 games a year for his career)
Must draft 5 Quarterbacks, Tight Ends, Kickers and Defenses
15 Running Backs and Wide Receivers.

Now no one cares to hear about other peoples fantasy teams, nor do I feel like breaking down how this played out(especially since each of us owns half the good players).

But I will say though he has an advantage in Wide Receivers, while I think I have an advantage in Running Backs.
