Because I know that many of you share my love of random facts about athletes, I am going to lay out my team, complete with random tidbit that no one needs to know about them.
2.) Trent Edwards (Buffalo Bills): His sister was a substitute teacher last year at my alma mater, St. Mary's in Lancaster. According to my sister, good looks must be in the Edwards gene pool.
1.) Edgerrin James (Arizona Cardinals): Edge and Matt Leinart are co-owners of one of the largest indoor go-cart tracks in Arizona.
2.) Darren McFadden (Oakland Raiders): Has the most random nicknames I've ever heard of, including "Run DMC" and "Humanity Advanced"
3.) Deuce McAllister (New Orleans Saints): His full name is Dulymus.
4.) Dominic Rhodes (Indianapolis Colts): Wants to start a real estate company after his career is over.
1.) Terrell Owens (Dallas Cowboys): Published a children's book entitled Little T Learns to Share. Oh yeah, and there's always this video.
2.) Plaxico Burress (NY Giants): His "unique" first name was chosen after his uncle.
3.) Jerry Porter (Jacksonville Jaguars): Won a slam dunk contest while in high school.
4.) James Hardy (Buffalo Bills): "General Studies" major in college, which I think is another name for "I go to college to play football and not pick up a book" studies.
1.) Chris Cooley (Washington Redskins): Has his own blog, which is actually really funny. Hmmm...Peyton may have some competition...
2.) Greg Olsen (Chicago Bears): Became the starter at Miami after Kevin Everett was drafted by the Bills.
1.) Mason Crosby (Green Bay Packers): Shares a last name with a certain hockey player, which is NOT the reason I picked him (or at least that's what I'm telling people).
2.) Jeff Reed (Pittsburgh Steelers): Was a journalism major in college.
1.) Chicago Bears: Brian Urlacher used to date Paris Hilton.
2.) Tampa Bay Buccaneers: Ronde Barber was named one of People's Sexiest Twins Alive, along with his brother, former Giants RB, Tiki.
So there's my team. Tomorrow, I draft another one for my family's league. Tonight, I try to catch up on the sleep I lost yesterday at my cousin's amazing wedding!
