The door is slowly closing on our second year playing MLS fantasy, but it is being kept slightly ajar by the inclusion of a Bracket Challenge. Thanks to Secret Zorro we have a league to join that will enable us to choose the outcomes of the various matchups leading up to the Championship. It will also be a forum for banter among all those who participate. Check the site for the Web address, league name, and password. Continue reading
The International break felt like a mini vacation. Only 4 games in MLS to contend with during this period, so this gave me time to play fantasy “Daily 11’s” and “Predictor” with the European Qualifiers.
