So I feel like I mentioned it somewhere here before, but after having her watch "The League" I was able to get my wife to play fantasy football this year. It was pretty awesome having her be a little into sports for a while, and she loved it too. She also ended up being pretty damn good at it - lost in the finals (I finished like 11th of 16 teams...whoops).
To memorialize it for her I bought her a team lot of her team. Grabbed some stuff on Blowout and COMC, put it all in a self made pack, and she liked it a lot even though she doesn't care for sports or cards typically. It was a pretty neat idea and I was glad it went so well!
I mentioned the idea to my brother, who's in my fantasy basketball league, and guess what I ended up getting as a gift? That's right...my team! Here are the starters:
My brother knew this, so he (and my Dad actually) tried to grab the guys I got back in the deal, Carmelo Anthony and Michael Carter-Williams. MCW is a fairly new rookie and they couldn't find any cards of him, but they did get a Melo, which I'll show off with my bench guys below:
So all in all 7/11 guys are still on my team, which is pretty remarkable given my add/drop/trade ways. But all 11 cards are awesome, it's really cool to have a snapshot of this season's team and hopefully they'll be able to bring home the championship for me this year!
