Pure Fantasy

Well, it was a team effort and I guess it took every player working together to lose this one.

It began Dec. 13, 2010. Three hundred and ninety eight days later, it ended.

Last Sunday, Team 9450 lost its head-to-head match-up in fantasy basketball, ending my 16-week winning streak. The streak included one league championship and spanned two seasons.

I texted my buddy Kev to break the bad news. I needed some support. Some words of encouragement from a best friend who understood my pain, my loss.

“It happened. I finally lost in fantasy. It’s over.”

“Good,” he texted back 45 minutes later. “Nobody cares.”
