Thank You Brett Farve! Watch the amazing finish

October 30, 2007

I watched one of the most amazing overtime victories that I have ever seen last night on Monday Night Football. I’ve attached a video, CLICK HERE, of the winning play made by Brett Farve and Greg Jennings for your enjoyment. But the real story here is that by Brett tossing that winning pass my fantasy football team won its game last night by two points and moved me into first place in my ESPN fantasy football league. Talk about a nail biter. I’ve attached a link HERE to the ESPN fantasy football box score so that you can see how close it was for yourself. BTW, do I have any other fantasy football fans who read this. If so, let me know by leaving a comment. I have a fantasy sports idea that I would like to share with you.
