I do realize that not everyone is into fantasy football, or even real football. So this book will not be for everybody. But hey, other than the dictionary, what book really IS? However, I hope it will appeal to lovers of sports AND humor as they mix well together.
Here's the cover and the blurb! Look for it to be released soon!
There is something to be said about fantasy football. That something is that it is not for everybody. Those who love it, love it. Those who hate it, hate it. Those who don’t care are called spouses.

You definitely will not find any ways to sharpen your managerial skills. In fact, there’s a good chance you won’t find any skill at all in this book.
Instead, what you will find is an inside look at one fantasy football league. A fly-on-the-wall perspective of ten scrappy managers/everyday Joes – more obsessive than some, less obsessive than most. A touching story of one triumphant champion and nine complete losers.
Prepare to step into history.
And by “history,” I mean “completely unspectacular events that have happened in the recent past.”
