"Sleeping With The Enemy" or "Banging Your Stepmom"

definition - when you are going up against a player in a H2H league that you have on your team in another league.

Sorry if this has already been approached / suggested. I am a new reader and love the site.

And a Variation:

"The Crying Game"

definition - when you cheer for a player on your team hitting a HR, only to later find out you are going against him in a H2H league ; Slight variation (of "the crying game")- to cheer for your player getting a HR, only to immediately find out it was off of your pitcher.

If you want me to look at your team, post the team. Don't post a link to another site where the team is.
Have you given me all the info I need to judge your team? The number of teams in the league is a good start for the big overall questions.
Is your league H2H? Roto?
I don't know who's on your waivers. Don't just ask me who you should pick up. Give me names to choose from.
If you only have one team, post your team in your signature with the league parameters.
I don't know every single matchup for next week, so if you want me to choose a player for the following week and you think the matchups are important, tell me who they're facing.

Hey WNP -
Welcome to the site and forums!

Re: your glossary submission, it's a little close to Fucking Your Stepsister (http://razzball.com/fantasy-baseball-te ... Stepsister) which is when you root for your fantasy player against your favorite real team.

It sure is common enough to be rooting for a guy who hurts you in another league but we're still in search of a wonderfully unique term for that situation...

Thanks!
Rudy

Fair enough (I just read the stepsister one, and it is pretty close)

"The Crying Game" is different though, as i will attempt to point out.

when you're "fucking your stepsister" there is an implied premeditation. You know its frowned upon, but come-on, she's hot, right?

With "The Crying Game", there is an element of surprise (albeit a horrible surprise). Initially you think the chick your about to sleep with is hot...then you find Mr Winky.

I bring it up because, as most of us probably are, I am in more than one league. Sometimes I forget that Josh Hamilton is facing a pitcher i added this week for a spot start in another league. So when i see his HR, I'm celebrating the score.... Until i find the metaphorical penis.

As I said before, I love the site. You guys do a great job. So much so that, dare I say, I'm thinking of growing a mustache, despite potential social shortcomings.

True, but the Crying Game implies that any momentary glee is followed by a stomach punch of regret.

In the case of a guy helping you in one league and hurting you in another (even if it's H2H), the emotional swing isn't nearly that dramatic.

It would be closer to a Sugar Rush - nice boost of energy from the positive news followed soon after by the crash from realizing that it hurt another one of your teams...

But Sugar Rush isn't funny enough to warrant glossary entry....
