Video game football is back. The 1st and Ten league has been reborn on the PS3. Jay, Kevin, Denis, and myself are taking up the Online Franchise mode in Madden NFL 10. In order to decrease the number of games against CPU Opponents we’ve taken teams in the NFC North. Jay will be heading the Chicago Bears, Kevin the Detroit Lions, Denis has picked the Minnesota Vikings, and that left me (last pick, last choice) with the Green Bay Packers. It’d be great to get more into this thing, so if you have a PS3 and Madden NFL 10 we’d love to have you join us. Provided of course that you’re not a dick. I don’t want to play games with a dick. Sorry. But at least I’m honest. Now if I could just get these other guys to sign up online so I can get started with the trades and what not.
In my fantasy football league I’m happy to report that Rampant (my team) beat RUNT (my brother’s team) in the season opener. Final score was Rampant 119.2, RUNT 111.0. I told him I was going to beat him and I’m glad I wasn’t just blowing smoke. It’d be a touch embarrassing to get beat by my baby brother. Points-wise we both ended up in the middle of the league. I’m feeling pretty good about this thing, but I don’t expect to win it and take home the big money.
In other fake football news, I found this online game by some of the folks that worked on Madden and worked on the 2K teams. Quick Hit Football. It’s a coach style game, or at least that’s what they’re saying. I haven’t actually played it yet, but I am looking forward to it. My team is the Grand Rapids Lions and my user name is arohen, per usual.
Did you watch the Saints beat up on the Lions this weekend? It was rough, but I did like what I was seeing from the Lions offense. The defense… not so much.
