I get a text message from my dear friend, Doc Z, on Monday morning. A guy I've probably known longer than anybody outside my immediate family. So he obviously knows me well as he sends this:
"I have you right where you hate to be going into Monday night football..."
Of course he did. I was up by three points. He had Frank Gore going in the Monday night game. You know how this ends. Only a stat correction can save me now, as the final score ended 120.02 to 121.26. Yes, please. Can I have a bloody stat correction already? (Which I categorically hate. And if there was a way the platform I'm using could undo stat corrections, I'd be all about it.)
So the Monday nightmare rolls on for me. I guess it does give me fodder for this column, so I could only take that as a good thing. But as we like to do every Tuesday morning, we take a look on Twitter using the hashtag #MondayNightmare to see who else among our fantasy football brethren are mourning today.
Yes, that was kind of rude.
I would have been printing the check headed into that one.
Two points. That's it, two!
Now it's Monday Nightmare column! Packer Girl is here!
Great Caesar's Ghost.
Oh that's right, Larry Donnell. I'm getting to the point where we need to eliminate TEs and just have a category for pass catchers.
Oops, sorry. We have a new leader in the clubhouse for bad beat of the night.
Oh right, we're going to get into the pick six right now. Here's a tweet I sent out after the play. And just check out the responses.
When you find yourself yelling at the TV, begging for a guy to fall down, you know it's probably a lost cause.
You might want to take a few plays off.
What was that all about, right?
Well, we can talk about LOS HYDE because we had really high hopes for him.
Yes. Well, except for Akbar. It's not good for him.
Am I right? San Diego State DEs FTW.
Nobody likes you, Jim.
All right, so if you're not Jim and want to commiserate about last night, or this weekend, be sure to use the #MondayNightmare hashtag. Consider this your big fantasy therapy couch. Let it all out, you'll feel better when you do.
For the record, you can submit your fantasy questions to NFL Fantasy Live, Michael Fabiano or me on Twitter. But realize, NFL Fantasy Live has 270K followers, and Fabiano has 165K. Me? Just four. See, the odds are better I will answer your question, so hit me up both via Twitter or via Facebook. And if you follow him on Sundays, he'll quote "The Wolf" from "Pulp Fiction" and then it's game on! Although, it's tough to catch me on Facebook. Twitter is your go-to." Plus seriously people, I'm not taking your fantasy tweets after Midnight. I'm into the #HashtagWars via @Midnight, so don't try. Just ask the people on Monday night
