The story of a 26 year old adult male who pretends to be a football manager in his spare time
Every year, from September to December the American version of fantasy football takes over my life.
Around 27 million North Americans will spend between $600 million and $1 billion on fantasy football this season. Either buying “inside pro” information on the players and teams or gambling real money on the outcomes.
