Let’s all collectively inhale, and let out a long, sigh of struggle and sadness. The 2015-16 football season has come to an end. It’s always helpful when the NCAA National Championship and NFL Playoffs are full of excitement. It allows the buzz to last longer than a bottle of 136 Proof, Booker’s Bourbon, alas, the football high often leaves fans with a lengthy hangover, and subsequent depression. We’re gonna help you avoid that depression, and at least limp you along to the 2016 NFL Draft, taking place April 28-30. Here are eight great ways to avoid post-football depression.
8. Analyze Your Fantasy Faux Pas
Do you play fantasy football? Are you a fantasy fiend? Year round? Daily? Analyzing your 2015/16 plays will help to wean you from the season, and identify where you went right, or where you went wrong. Was it a roller coaster ride? What were the variables? Did you stink it up in your fantasy league again? It’s time to start asking those tough questions: are you picking players with your heart or head? Did players under perform? Perform beyond expectation? We’re not going to pretend like fantasy isn’t a huge industry, where millions are exchanged weekly. If you won big, congratulations. If you lost your kid’s college fund, you need to get him. Analyzing your past season will help you more easily deal with the present world… the one without football. This sport season has it wired, doesn’t it? Always leaves us wanting more.
