Walking through my local Vegas grocery stores, I always find myself in the magazine area.
Tonight I saw seven, yes seven, fantasy football magazines. This can only mean one thing, we all have way too much time on our hands, or that the fantasy football season is right around the corner.
Being that it is only July there are still plenty of questions that need to be answered. The...
