Fantasy Football

Right now, many NFL enthusiasts around the country can be found at home crying in their beers, bellyaching about their favorite squad being unceremoniously ousted from championship contention. Or, worse, wagering their children’s college funds on the Super Bowl in hopes of ditching the bad taste left in their mouth from their team’s lackluster season.

But Valley pigskin addicts get a special opportunity to extend the season without involving the favorite household time absorber or creepy hooligan bookie. When the Super Bowl rolls into town, it brings with it the NFL Experience, wherein fans can test their abilities in throwing, catching, kicking, and running a football attached to a bungee cord while trying to reach the end zone. In other words, it’s a chance to get out on the gridiron and show off the skills one can’t master from numerous 12-ounce curls and constant trips to the fridge.
