Color me envious.

A fantasy football league I once belonged to, The Times Football League, is enjoying their annual convention/player draft/booze fest right now in Buffalo.

These are some hardcore gentlemen.

Not only do they compete for serious cash and prizes (It costs $150 a year to belong), they also compete for a consolation trophy among the losing teams, the Sweeney Bowl.
Their Super Bowl trophy is a T. rex mounted on an oak pedestal with the name of the winning team owner engraved every year.

They had a billiards tournament the other night, and their annual touch football game. They took a boat ride on the Maid of the Mist to the base of Niagra Falls. Then they all went to the Buffalo Bills vs. New England Patriots game.

The part that got my attention, of course, was their account of right after a visit to the original home of the Buffalo wing.

That's like a trip to the Taj Majal.

Anyway, best of luck to the men of the TFL.
