The Newbie Welcome Thread

Recommended Posts

My name is AtomicCEO, and I'm a former sheepherder from the small Mediterranean Greek-like island of Mypos. I traveled to the United States in search of my relatives. I live with my high-strung cousin, Larry, in his big city apartment.

 

We could not be more different, but our very different outlooks on life lead to wild antics and hilarious hijinks. He introduced me to fantasy football even though I thought he was being ridiculous.

You are not Balke :D

Who: From Chicago so I guess I am a Bears fan, but when asked the question would you rather the Bears win the super bowl or your fantasy team winning the league....I'll take my fantasy team.

 

What: High School Student...Work in the carryout of Carson's Ribs (But Never on Sunday's or Monday's)

 

When: 17 years old 3 sisters one brother and a mom and a Dad.

 

Where: Chi-town Is my town

 

Why: Second year in a row I was able to steal my dad's credit card.

 

Fantasy Bio ....My friend introduced me to the huddle three years ago been hooked ever since. I believe that I am in the top 5 of people that love fantasy football and I have created the best fantasy league at my high school. I pass up bears games so I can watch the rest of the NFL at my local sports bar from 12-6 30 everyday cause I dont want to miss any of the action. Play the game right by using CBSsportsline for the past 7 years any my fantasy career. Best draft pick i have ever made was taking steve smith in the 4th round in 2006. Even though I am young and a rather new huddle member I still love fantasy football as much as Huddle member number 4 or whoever is on this website. I am extremely happy to be in the huddle community because I belong here.

Who: turnit643

 

What: Chiropractor with some time spent in sports psych, former HS football and hockey coach. Married and expecting our first little one any day now.

 

When: Born during an 8-0 opening day loss for the A's, but I've never held that against them, they went on to win 100 games for me that year.

 

Where: Started in Santa Rosa, CA, got away multiple times, now back again for good.

 

Why: Insomnia mainly.

 

Fantasy Bio: Played in and commished many leagues over the years (more years and leagues than I care to admit), tried many formats, still the best is a long time local redraft filled with friends. I've recently whittled down to two football leagues and one baseball league - which is a blast ... a runs-created format that ruined 5X5 for me forever. Stopped in for a peek at the Huddle here and there for years, jumped in with both feet this year thanks to an invite from Beaumont in the Home Field Advantage BOTH league. It's been a fun glimpse into the family you've all got going over here.

I actually feel a bit embarrassed that I know what you're talking about. And now that you've brought it up, I've got "The Wiggles" songs stuck in my head. The kids can't get enough of it in the car. :D
