Hours after I submitted my self-deprecating piece last week, I won. While I contemplated this ironic turn of events, my team went on, garnering me another win. Fate, it seems, is enjoying laughing at my expense, making me appear like a liar to all of you. What caused this dramatic turn of events? Was it the new quarterback I picked up, Dak Prescott, because Justin Fields had injured himself and Brock Purdy was on a bye week? Should I change my lineup or keep it the same? How do I know if I’m doing the right thing?
Obviously, I’m overjoyed that my team is doing well, but I’m left with more questions than answers, and I’m not sure what to do. Fantasy Football isn’t an exact science, so I know that some of this is just hoping that my guys do well, but there’s got to be more to it, right?
In other news, I’ve decided that I will be a die-hard Eagles fan. As a native New Yorker, I understand that this is a dangerous decision to make, but I’m sticking to it. As for my reasons, they are as follows: as a Muhlenberg student, I now spend the majority of my time in Pa., where most people are Eagles fans– this is survival. I look FANTASTIC in dark green, which just so happens to be the Eagle’s color. Finally, saying “Go Birds” is super fun and brings me great happiness. I have requested Eagles merch for the upcoming holiday season and expect to be fully decked in time for the Eagles to return to the Superbowl once again (let the record state that I did root for the Eagles last year). GO BIRDS!
