Winter Sports: Fantasy Football

Andrew, Brandon, and I all play fantasy football in a league with nine other friends and family members.  This is our fourth season playing together and we love it.  This was easily my favorite season so far because.... I WON!!!  The super bowl.  The whole she-bang.  The entire season.  Aaaaagggghhhh!  I hope you get a feeling for how exciting this was for me. 

I played IX Fe (Jeff) in the super bowl.  It came down to the Monday Night Football game.  I had Drew Brees and Darren Sproles.  He had Jimmy Graham and Matt Ryan.  I am SO grateful that Drew Brees had a passing record on the line because his last touchdown to Sproles sealed the deal.  I haven't screamed like that over an NFL game since...ever.  So, so fun!

 Final score:  Gridiron Girl 160, IX Fe 145

My new fantasy football crush:  Drew Brees

To celebrate my win, Andrew put together a trophy ceremony.  We ate yummy pizza
and toasted with Martinelli's.

The other exciting part of this season:
Brandon took third place!!
Andrew (the commissioner of our league) got him a medal
to commemorate his accomplishment.
Way to go, B!

And I received the league champ trophy!
Woo hoo!

Reveling in our victories.

I joined the Circle of Champions, which already included
Michael ('09 and '10) and Andrew ('08).

Instead of a celebratory Yoohoo shower,
which sounded sticky and messy,
we just drank the Yoohoo instead.

I'm already looking forward to next season when I get to change my team name from Gridiron Girl to Trophy Wife. 


  1. Way to kick those boys' trash Andrea! Woot!

  2. Love it! Geaux Trophy Wife! I love Drew Brees too...cause I'm a Saint's fan though. :)

  3. LOVE this!


  4. Trophy Wife... I love it. Thanks for letting me and my girls crash your place, this morning.

  5. Don't know a thing about fantasy football, but congratulations anyway. Nice trophies.
