Fantasy Football season is almost here!
Regular readers of this blog know I'm obsessed with fantasy sports. Not quite sure how it happened. I remember my first ever fantasy football draft. I had no idea what I was doing. I picked the Bears Kordell Stewart in the first round, thinking he could be good. Let's just say I was heckled for the rest of the night.
But I quickly figured out my mistake, and after a full season, I was hooked. August/September is officially one of my favorite times of the year, and I'm in way too many leagues.
WGN Sports Producer Steve Lippo and I are doing a weekly podcast this year, where we'll be breaking down the weekend of games and looking ahead to the next. You can find our most recent episode HERE. Look for them up on the blog every Wednesday.
On tonight's WGN News at Five, I hit Roots Handmade Pizza, who is having a special for Fantasy Football leagues who draft at the bar/restaurant. $19 per person will get you all you can eat pizza and all the beer to go with it. Haymarket Pub & Brewery is also offering a draft special - $8 pizzas and a chance to win an awards banquet for your league at the end of the season.
If you want to partake in any restaurant special, YOU HAVE TO CALL IN ADVANCE. They usually consider these private parties, so don't just show up with your league. Make sure you have a reservation.
We'll post the feature here after it airs. For now, here's more info about the two spots....
