Sometimes it's better to be lucky than good.

A quick fantasy football fairy tale.

Scott Heavey

So I woke up at 3am - no alarm, but couldn't sleep - with every intention of selling Anderson (will he or won't he start?) for Bertrand or maybe Marin. The team sheets came out, and my options are... Gary O'Neil and Carlton Cole. Fuck! So what the hell, I picked Cartlon Cole figuring at best he gets a shot and at worst it's a -2 for backing into the defender over and over again. Go for the striker, even if he's no better than an inanimate carbon rod most of the time. Then I went back to bed.

Needless to say, a goal and assist later and I am the greatest fantasy manager OF ALL TIME! ;-)

Updated: Of course Anderson scores! *sigh* Well, just imagine how angry I would be if I had picked O'Neil.
