@Kelly - as promised, the context to my signature...
Guys - just want to say thanks for pointing me in the direction of 'Fantasyland'. I am about two-thirds of the way through and am just loving it. The pre-season and draft bits are all well and good, but I think I read my favourite bit (so far) last night:
Lawr Michaels in driving somewhere with his wife and he is listening to a game in which he has a pitcher going. The pitcher is getting shelled, but is left in there because, the radio guys say, there is no one up in the bullpen. Michaels launches into an expletive-ridden tirade (of a type that I certainly wouldn't get into in front of my wife) about the pitcher, the manager etc etc.
His wife calmy and quietly points out to him that given the stress that fantasy baseball obviously causes him, he perhaps needs an outlet. Michaels' reply?
"This is my fucking outlet!"
I laughed until the tears ran down my face.
