He's a winner, people.
As trivial as it may seem, this is big time around the Chaney house. With Tim Tebow leading him to victory, Jack is officially the LCANCAAFFA Fantasy Football Champion for the 2007 season. Congrats, hubbie.
He and his college buddies started the LCANCAAFFA (an acronym for his fraternity + NCAA + fantasy football association - of course) eleven years ago and it's been going strong ever since. They have come to pronounce it as "lack-a-naca-fafa". Fun to say, difficult to live with. For those of you unfamiliar with the concept, the game consists of each guy "drafting" a team of players from various college teams, then pitting them against each other, and then adding up points for touchdowns, rushing yards, and extra points of their respective players. It's complicated and there are spreadsheets involved.
But the good thing is that it keeps him in touch with his buddies who are far away geographically and Jack thoroughly enjoys every exciting new season. It's amazing how long he and his friend Dennis can talk about the statistics, politics, strategies, line ups, traditions, and fashions (yes, fashions) of college football. It's truly amazing.
I balk at times at the whole thing, but as far as hubandly hobbies go, it could be worse. He's learning to keep it in check and I'm learning to cheer for the Ray Rices and Tim Tebows of Jack's fantasy world. I love Jack and I'm still learning that loving Jack may involve watching a "really awesome" replay when I really would rather not or listening to the animated recap of a player's stellar performance when I'd rather discuss anything but. So, go Jack, go. I'm still and always your #1 cheerleader. (Super cheesy, I know, and I'm no cheerleader, but you know what I mean. I love my man.)
