Fantasy Football may be fake, but the struggle for wives is real
Fantasy Football is a helluva drug. It’s like the mistress in millions of marriages across the United States every fall. No one gets this better than Carey Reilly, a mom, wife, talk show host, and the blogger behind Not So Skinny Mom. Reilly recently took to her Facebook page to lament her own husband’s Fantasy Football addiction.
Her hilariously animated video absolutely nails the absurdity that is Fantasy Football.
“I’ve been noticing that my husband is very distracted lately,” she begins. She says her husband was at their son’s soccer game with his laptop open, his phone on, and completely absorbed in the “fantasy” of it all and missing out on major family time.
Raise your hand if the “boop beep boop” alert sound from the ESPN app makes you feel like a wife version of Pavlov’s Dogs Of Rage. Just how many injured NFL players are there every week? Do we really need to “change our lineup” at the dinner table?
