Fantasy Football!

“Winning isn’t everything, it’s the only thing” – NFL Coach Vince Lombardi

I’ve been hooked on ESPN Fantasy Football these past few weeks. The league I play in has 16 teams, including residents and UIC Campus Housing coworkers. I know I’m going to get alot of criticism from true fanatics but to spark conversation, here’s my fantasy team:

Team: That’s No Moon (–Star Wars)
QB- Drew Brees, NO
RB- LeSean McCoy, Phi
RB- Ryan Mathews, SD
RB/WR- James Starks, GB
WR- Jeremy Maclin, Phi
WR- Mike Wallace, Pit
TE- Jason Witten, Dal
D/ST- Eagles
K- John Kasay, NO

Bench:
QB- Jay Cutler, Chi
RB- Pierre Thomas, NO
RB- Michael Bush, Dal
WR- Victor Cruz, NYG
WR- Preston Parker, TB
TE- Rob Gronkowski, NE
D/ST- Redskins

I recently earned one trophy titled “I Beat My RD” for defeating JST Resident Director and my supervisor Miranda =P

**Top 3: Must Attend Chicago Fall Events** 

3. Hot Chocolate Run (November)
Running never felt so sweet! After the Chicago Marathon, Chicago’s next big one is the Hot Chocolate Run! Thousands upon thousands of people, businesses, and charities will be there sharing the fun. Link to the Hot Chocolate Run: http://www.hotchocolate15k.com/chicago/

2. Chicago’s Navy Fear (October)
Weeks leading up to Halloween, Navy Pier becomes Navy Fear. Overrun with frightful monsters, Haunted Houses, and moving objects, they go all out in this theme park

A monster surprised us while we wait in line for "The Fear" (haunted house)

 1. Magnificent Mile Lights Festival (November)
One of nation’s largest holiday evening events, Chicago celebrates it’s tradition of lighting more than millions of lights down the Mag-Mile. I go every year since I lived in Chicago and get so many free things =)

Next week I’ll talk about the intramural basketball team I’m coaching, Tony’s Tigers. And we just made the playoffs!

QUESTION OF THE WEEK: If you could spend any night at one store, which would it be?
