    Yes FOOTBALL FANS, it's that time of year again. It's the 2nd Annual Official Talkbass Fantasy Football League!!! Now, I know that most teams don't even open training camp for another week or more, but it's time to start thinking FOOTBALL!

    A quote from last year's champion, Jazzbo: "I'd like to thank God, Buddha, Allah, for my victory. It was only because Jesus, Elijiah, Mohammed, were watching over me that I was able to come out ahead. You know, I just had a game plan, and I stuck to it. The rest of the guys played some great ball, but in the end it just came down to execution"

    Cassanova, JimK, pmkelley, Gard, jrthebassguy, it's time to get back into the fantasy football league. I've taken the liberty of setting us up on Yahoo! The league can hold 10 teams. To sign up, you have to have a yahoo user name. Go to:

    Obviously, you've never played.

    We, on the other hand, have...& we have played without pads, too(The game was called "Smear The Queer"...way back & prior to being politically correct).

    I'm in one other FFL this year and would love to get in, but I can't find the league. Is this a pre-paid league or do I need to buy one team? Or maybe it's full already.

    You know the page that says "Join pre-paid league" and "buy one team" "two teams" etc. CLick on the banner that says fantasy football at the side of that page.
