Or am I?
While my heart lies (and I feel will always lie) with college sports (Carolina football kicks off in t minus 11 days - be still my heart), pro football may be sneaking its way in my life. And as usual, we can thank TJ for this.
Y'all obviously know about my
like love for T.J. Yates. I've said it once a million times and I'll say it again - T.J. Yates made me the college football fan that I am today. And now he's making me an NFL fan... sort of.
My allegiance is, of course, with college football and the most beautiful university in the country, BUT since T.J. is now in the NFL, I have the desire to follow pro sports. Enter "Yaters Gonna Yate."
Yaters Gonna Yate is the name of the fantasy football team my dad and I drafted last night. The draft was incredibly fun/stressful! It went much faster than I thought and since I don't know a ton of NFL players, many decisions were made based upon "Oh, he's cute" or "Look at his smile! Let's draft him."
Well, the plan was to draft T.J. with the last pick in the draft (the other teams aren't exactly fighting over him), but somehow we miscounted and only had one pick left when we thought we had two!! We had to get a kicker because we hadn't gotten one yet, so this morning, as soon as we were allowed to add/drop players, I made this little change.

Thank goodness. I don't think you understand the level of stress I had at our miscalculation last night.
So here is our team (substitute TJ for Crabtree).

What do y'all think? I'd love to hear the opinion of someone who actually watches NFL games for more reason than a 3rd string quarterback crush.
