Is your week going slowly?! It is only Monday, but it sure is taking forever. AND we have this weird holiday in the middle of the week for Independence Day!

Anyway, soon enough it will be football season and you can fill those boring parts of the day thinking about fantasy football. The awesome thing about fantasy football is that you always have something new to think about each day of the week. If you have never played fantasy football, here is how a normal week looks like for us addicts:

Sunday: Game day!!!! Stuck staring at NFL Red Zone and the box scores hoping that players on our team scored touchdowns. We are hoping that games are high scoring and we just keep looking at our roster.

Monday: Monday Night Football and you or the team you are playing against has a player on their roster that could change the outcome of the game. This is why people still watch Monday Night Football even thought the matchups suck!

Tuesday: Put in waiver claims for players that went on a scoring spree. Hope that the player saves your season!

Wednesday: See if you won the waiver claim and check who other people dropped into free agency

Thursday: Check out the projections for all your players and start tinkering with your roster.

Friday: Set your starting lineup for the weekend

Saturday: Even GOD took a day to rest

Sunday: Wake up early to make sure your players didn’t magically get injured or anything like that… GAME DAY all over again!


Anyway, in this moment of boredom, I have so much anticipation for the Chargers season and for fantasy football! If you were not part of one of the Bolt Beat leagues last season, get ready because we are sure to bring it back! If you were not part of them last season, I am sure that this season will be even better!
