And it's only make believe

(Continued)

Lockport Union-Sun & Journal — And seriously, have you ever seen a bumper sticker or team pennant hanging in some guy’s man-cave that says, “Bob’s Team”? Someone else’s priorities are as interesting as listening to their dreams: “I had the craziest dream last night! You wouldn’t believe what happened!” Oh-oh! Warning, warning! Total boredom dead ahead! Please make every effort to simulate interest. Move face muscles and utter “Really?!”

When I told my friend Russ, an avid fantasy-football participant, that I was writing this column, he mentioned that I was too “closed-minded.” I reminded Russ that I’d have nothing to write about if I had an open mind. 

I mentioned that I liked the real deal as far as football was concerned. I was a Buffalo Bills fan – and my sole attention was geared at watching them make a playoff run this year.

Russ remarked, “And you said you didn’t like fantasy football?!”

“Never mind that,” I shot back, “I think my dream is finally going to come true this year.”

Russ raised his eyebrows, scrunched his face and smirked. “Really?”

Hey! Wait a second.

And that’s the way it looks from the Valley.
