You titled your column with that cringe-worthy "Electric Boogaloo" cliché, Matthew Berry. I shan't read it now.

In the first couple paragraphs he mentioned the 'current' Mrs. Roto. I thought it strange he called her that until I read more, than skimmed more, than scrolled more, then finally rolled down as fast as I could and it seemed to never end, then it made sense. Girls must not last long in his life with his fantasy obsession. Then I wondered why he doesn't write a manifesto on how geeks completely obsessed with fantasy stuff can still pull tail. I play fantasy football/baseball and I'm sure many on here do. But that...that's just a level of compulsion and obsession I can't fathom.

It helps if you listen to the Fantasy Focus podcast. A lot of the jokes either come from or are explained there. He says Current Mrs. Roto to distinguish from his ex-wife, The Ex Mrs. Roto.
/He is of course, a company man.

List of top robots fails without Tom Servo and Crow.

Matthew Berry's articles are all tl;dr. He's quite pleased with himself and his own sense of humor, and I can't begrudge him that, I guess.

i don't even play fantasy baseball, I just listen for the entertainment factor.

fantasy football, on the other hand, that I play. And thanks in part to them, I did pretty good this year.

My last two years of fantasy have been odd. The problem is that it's an AL-only league (because the non-work half of the league sucks, that's why) and when, say, Matt Holiday gets traded out of the AL to the NL, like happened to me in '09, you're screwed because you've just lost one of the most productive outfielders in the league. Took '10 off to see if it'd be better. I had so many frickin' injuries last year, but somehow i was still in 3rd because I had consistent, if not awesome, pitching. Just haven't been lucky enough, I guess.

That's why I play mixed, basic leagues. Is there ever a Fark league?

Sure was, but D20 has more support now...
