New York Yankees hold fantasy football draft in ESPN Zone

a-rodPro athletes play fantasy football, too.

Sunday evening, a ton of New York Yankees dropped by ESPN Zone in the Inner Harbor to conduct their fantasy football draft in a private room.

"The whole team was there -- Jeter, A-Rod, Teixeira, Joba, etc.," ESPN Zone publicist Kat Kirsch wrote in an e-mail.

I wonder who got Ray Lewis?

You seriously have to wonder when you have a gazillion dollars like these dudes do, why in the hell you would spend your time at ESPN Zone? Was there not a nicer place to do their draft? Are the Zone wings that great?

I know!

I would have at least chartered a hovercraft.

But what did they do? They got in the ZOOOONE. ESPN ZOOOONE.

"I wonder who got Ray Lewis?"
I take it you don't play Fantasy Football Sam?

FYI!! If you are drafting in an IDP (Individual Defensive Player) league, then Ray Lewis would be a viable option. Not a first rounder, but definitely later in the draft.

Justin - Thanks for the useless info.

anyone else miss GDA?


I'd trade johnnycat for GDA. That's saying something.
