Some who know me might see the headline and think this post will be about Henrik Lundqvist the starting goalie for the New York Rangers who is, for lack of a better word…..beautiful.
Since 2003 I have been in a Fantasy Baseball League with some Washington D.C. area people, including my good friends Beth and Darryl. Fun Fact: My first year, our draft was held as the U.S. declared war on Iraq. Needless to say the draft took much longer than usual.
Every year since, I have been asked to join fantasy hockey and football leagues as well. Every year I turned down the invitations, always saying playing fantasy baseball was enough and other sorted excuses.
Today marks a new day. A fellow tweeter Drew requested I join his league. After a long internal debate and slight begging on his part, I have decided to play fantasy hockey. My team name is No Puck Bunnies Here. What’s a Puck Bunny? A Puck Bunny is woman who takes more interest in the players off the ice than the game itself. (PG version of the definition) While I do tend to tweet about Henrik and call him #SexyBlueEyedGoalie along with commenting on other better than average looking players, I am and always have been a sports fan first. Hence, I am NO puck bunny!
Right now it seems that I am the only female in the league…..SHOCKING!
The draft is Monday night. This should be interesting….here goes nothing.
As a former Ranger season ticket holder (Blue seats – Potvin sucks! 32nd year of that chant this season) I love the sport. I played fantasy hockey from around 1998 (USA TODAY box scores…holla) up until a couple years ago.
Good luck this year – It’ll keep you busy during the hot stove season. Let us know how you do.
PS – love your team’s name!
