NFL football begins this week and with it is the start of thousands of fantasy football leagues. I’m sure most of you are familiar with fantasy football. You know - it’s kind of Dungeons and Dragons for sports nerds. Yes, I’ve been in a league with the same group of guys and a couple of gals for the past ten or eleven years.
Just until a few years ago I kept the same team name and my team was named after one of the coolest Mego action figures of all time - The Green Goblin. At first the Goblins usually made the playoffs. One time they reached the Super Bowl but lost a close game to the Live Wires. For the past couple of years I change the team name each season. Past team names have been the Monster Mashers, Cap’n Crunchers, Zombie Armada and this year - The Fighting Sporks!
Every week, all of us post a silly type of photo relating to our team name. Here’s some low res junk that I put together from 2001 - 2005 for my Goblins team. Most of these were inside jokes and spoofs directed to the team I was playing that week.
