You may have heard or seen on the internet that Fantasy Football is pretty much just Dungeons & Dragons for jocks. This is half true. Fantasy Football and D&D have quite a few things in common but are also vastly different. There is infinitely less creativity involved in Fantasy Football than in role-playing games for one. Fantasy Football seems to be far more popular and socially “acceptable.” People that play one or the other are rarely in the same social circles… one would think.
When we were all children, we had dreams. Some kids promise that when they grow up, they will become astronauts. Some kids even innocently swear they will become dinosaurs upon adulthood. Me? I wanted to be Batman. Even other 4 to 5-year-olds laughed at this concept. And yet, I was not deterred. Of course, even at 4 years old, I was a rational individual who understood it would take millions of dollars, and virtually limitless resources, but even more importantly, the right amount of know-how.
