Losing week one of fantasy football is not an option...

Opening day of the 2013 National Football League season is here, and with it the remote possibility of fantasy football glory. I've played enough fantasy football to know how fluky the phenomenon can be, which makes me that much more worried about this week one in the family fantasy league.

You see, I just found out I'm playing against my wife.

Most people would be thrilled to match up against a fantasy football rookie who used a decent pick to take third-string quarterback Tim Tebow (just because she loves him that much), but I'm terrified.

Though her selection process was a bit shaky, my wife's nine starters are solid, so Yahoo only has me favored to win by a 51 to 49 percent margin. Oh, and somehow we both got the same "C" grade on our drafts. It's conceivable that the woman who selected Sebastian Janikowski, Giovani Bernard and the Baltimore defense because she likes their names could win in her first matchup ever.

I'll never live it down...

I think you might be going down...

Ethan, your readers are eagerly waiting for an update on your FF Week 1 results!

I'm ashamed to admit it, but I no longer believe that fantasy football takes skill or strategy. I've lost in a big way. The current score is 106-64. I deserve to be mocked and ridiculed, especially since my QB is Colin Kaepernick.
