This note is a few days overdue, but I want to give a huge shout out of thanks to Fantasy Draft. I was fortunate enough to win the Shannon Sharpe Hall of Fame Luncheon Experience over Super Bowl weekend and I can’t even describe how great of a time I had. I got to take a great friend with me and we both flew our wives out also so we had an awesome 4 day, kid free weekend in the heart of San Francisco.
DFS is really an impersonal activity. We read articles, listen to podcasts, scour rankings, and crunch numbers to construct the best possible entries, but most times we don’t get to just sit back and be fans. When I met Shannon and he escorted us past security into a room where Namath was having a conversation with Staubach and Aeneas Williams was harassing Andre Reed about pushing off, I pretty much instantly transformed back into just a football fan punching my friend in the arm to point out Bradshaw or the Bus or Jim Kelly. At the luncheon we sat 10 feet away from Jerry Jones, Robert Kraft, and Bon Jovi. To say this was a once in a lifetime experience might be an understatement.
Anyway, I just wanted to say a huge thank you to Steven and the entire Fantasy Draft team for hosting the Experience contests and for a fantastic time in San Francisco. Now we all need to work together to get DFS fully legal and growing again so I can try to win another of these trips!
All the Best,
