Some good ways to spend a Sunday

CWRU is hard.

That might be an understatement for some of you, or an overstatement for you SAGES-majors out there. I thought my senior year was going to be easy, but no, this semester has been my hardest and busiest one yet. Between class, work, research, group meetings and extracurriculars, there is no stop to the madness.

But there is one day of the week where the pain of the looming test and the worry of unemployment can't touch me. What day is it, you ask the fantasy football columnist…why of course it's Sunday.

I want to share with you kids out there my top three ways to enjoy football Sunday to the fullest.

1.) Get a crew of your favorite Bro Montanas together, mark your territory in the corner of the Jolly Scholar on the plush red couches in front of three monitors, plug your computer in and post up for a good 12 hours. Good food, good drinks, and NFL Sunday Ticket.

2.) Barely able to roll out of bed after one of those crazy CWRU nights? Put some laundry in and fold those whites while you flip between CBS and FOX. Functional and fun.

3.) I have unfortunately had to this one more than I have wanted to, but it is a viable way to get your workload tamed down for the following week and still get your football in. Sit down at Kelvin Smith Library and get your money's worth for CWRU's T-500 internet connection: watch the games in the library in the background while getting work done. Way too functional, not as much fun.

But alas, I am supposed to give you some tips on how to win your league. Trust me, boys and girls. I'm that good.


Matt Cassel (Kansas City Chiefs): Don't give up on this young blood just yet. He is just recovering from an injury and obviously it there is a trial period before getting back into the groove of things (i.e. Tom Brady, who by the way I have not seen get angry in the past three years, blew up on the side lines this past week…uh oh!). Once he gets in a grove with Dwayne Bowe and his other receivers, he will be worth a start in 2 QB leagues, though he won't put up numbers comparable to last year.
