Female Fantasy Fix

August 26, 2006 | by RotoWidow | Comments Comments Off on Female Fantasy Fix

From the RotoWidow files

I’ve finally succumbed to roto life. Yes, I’ve joined a league — the Fantasy Fashion League. A fabulous female, fed up with her husband’s fantasy football lunacy, created a roto league that women can call their own.

Now, I can really relate to the stress of setting lineups and constantly monitoring player performance. The difference is that I’ll be setting a lineup of fashion/accessories designers and celebrities on my team, Royal Canadian Fashion Police. I mean, I’d much prefer to dissect the strengths of Chanel over Betsey Johnson rather than whether A-Rod should be at third or short.

How do designers and celebrities earn points, you ask? It’s simple. Points accumulate based on the amount of press each player gets in the fashion media — InStyle, Women’s Wear Daily, Vogue — and for being “seen” at awards shows.

It all kicks off tomorrow night with the Emmy awards, so obviously my lineup is skewed towards popular TV celebs who are likely to have plenty of coverage (well, media coverage at least). I think RotoRob would be very pleased with my picks of Eva Longoria and Mary-Louise Parker.

Let’s just see if I’ve picked up a thing or two from my life as the RotoWidow. I’ll check in every now and then to tell you how I’m doing. And next time your significant other starts whining about life as a roto widow, you can honestly say, “it’s fun; you should try it,” and then point them to the Fantasy Fashion League. Let the games begin ladies!

RotoWidow: Is There a Place for Loyalty in Fantasy?

The trade would definitely help his team win, but RotoRob had picked Jones right from the get-go, back in the day when he first formed his Fantasy team. There was some pride in that and loyalty to a player that — while the “manager” will never actually manage or even meet him — had provided nothing but season after season of payoffs in the pool.

RotoWidow: Counting Down to the Trade Deadline

July 30, 2006 | by RotoWidow | Comments (0)
By now I manage to cope pretty well with the fact that vacations are only possible before April and after September. The need for proximity to a computer with Internet access is pretty routine in my life now. Still, this time of year is so disruptive to my peace. It’s hard to believe the stress that so many ordinary people — Fantasy baseball managers — put themselves through for their fictional teams. I mean, that’s why the Theo Epstein‘s of the world get paid millions. In many cases, RotoRob included, it’s pride that motivates.
