Tucker's Tales


Sweet, Sweet Fantasy Baby....

Posted by Ally Tucker on September 5, 2011 at 4:40 PM

Check. Check. 1, 2. Check...1, 2, 3....is this thing on?

You know it has been WAYYYYYYY too long since you've blogged when you can't even remember your password to sign in to the website. My bad readers, my bad. I can promise you though that both myself and fellow blogger Kristen Geil are ready to jump back in head first to this thing. Be ready to be completely blogged down (punny, right?) with posts on the reg. 

What have I been up to in the past month while not blogging? Well, a lot. But most importantly, I have been creating a Fantasy Football League. The league is not quite like the others you have probably heard of, full of a bunch of football experts & fanatics. This league was specifically created for those who do not typically join such leagues. This is a league for the people have always wondered "what exactly is fantasy football?" To give you an example of how random this league is, it includes: My college soccer coach, Kristen Geil's Mom, my cousin who hates all things sports-related and my childhood neighbor who I haven't seen in over 12 years.

With all the hype surrounding the league leading up to our live draft (not to be confused with the Tucker's Tales Life Draft...which will resume again one day...maybe), I have been doing a lot of thinking about who I might pick for my Fantasy Football Team. I'm not talking about NFL players either...I'm talking about FANTASY, as in, could never really happen. Not quite Ludacris "What's Your Fantasy" style fantasy--but maybe more like Mariah Carey's "Fantasy."

The top prospects for my FANTASY Football Team?....


Tim Riggins. Mmmmm baby, baby. I love to love Tim Riggins. Tim Riggins was the troubled soul/hard hitting linebacker on the Dillon Panthers. Who are the Dillon Panthers you might ask? Go to Netflix and start watching Season 1 of Friday Night Lights. You will not be disappointed.

In my perfect Fantasy Football League, not only is Tim Riggins and his 6-pack (stomach and Bud Heavy...cuz that's how Tim Riggins rolls) , aviator glasses, almost greasy hair and bad ass attitude....on my team, but he also makes out with me during halftime of each game. Hey, it's my team...my fantasy. Tim Riggins, come on down.

While on the theme of Dillon Panthers....might as well pick up a soft-spoken Quarterback while I'm at it....

Matt Saracen

Has a more precious little quarterback ever existed? His boyish charm and good looks, his dimples, his accent. He's cuter than a box of buttons. And he's as sweet as a Peep. His quarterback skills are somewhat debatable, but he rose to the challenge and led the Dillon Panthers to a state championship. Not to mention that he managed to snag the head coach's daughter. That adds a little spice to the shy boy's game. 

Oh, did I mention that he also takes care of his grandma who suffers from Dementia? Don't even try to tell me that this guy doesn't have character. 

I'm not done picking off the Dillon Panthers one by one just yet. I might as well steal their coach while I'm at it. And his aviator-wearing (see a theme here in Dillon, Texas?) wifey. 

Coach Taylor

"Clear eyes, full hearts, can't lose."

That's just one example of the many gems that Coach Taylor can throw out in a locker room to get his team ready to go to battle. The man is scary. Seriously, flat out scary. When he purses his lips, puts his hands on his hips and begins to speak---you listen. I expect Coach Taylor to lead me to a few Fantasy Football titles....

He's not just a fighter though...he's a lover too. Best TV husband/wife duo of all time...

So now that I've picked up a coach and a few other position players, it's time to go for the meat of the line-up. I need some bulk on my front line....


I haven't decided exactly where I will play Precious....but I can promise you that she probably won't be our kicker.

Every team needs a "feel good story" type of player. I know who I want mine to be... 

Go ahead and start chanting now...


Rudy won't help us win many games but he'll get us a lot of press on ESPN. Everyone loves an underdog type of story. Thanks in advance Rudiger. 

I can't really take credit for the next pick....Kristen Geil brought her back into my memory, but she is certainly a big time Fantasy Football Prospect...

Becky "the Icebox" O'Shea

You don't want none of that.....

And if we wanna keep the old Icebox happy, we better bring along her boo too. I don't even remember his name but we'll take him too.

The Ice Box's Bitch

We already have one QB prospect, but let's be honest...Matt Saracen is more of a back up QB to use during a "bye week." I'm sure as hell not picking Dawson Leery  James Van der Beek's character from Varsity Blues...

Instead, I'm going to go with a sleeper pick....


Remember him from Remember the Titans? So what if he may also "play for the other team?" The dude can throw the ball a mile. I'll take him.

If we are going to pluck from the Remember the Titans crew, might as well go with the dynamic duo as well...

Bertier & Julius...


"Attitude reflect leadership, cap'n."

Time for me to pick a stud running back. Easiest pick of the draft...

Forest, Forest Gump. 

Runs fah dayz....

And with the least obvious choice of the draft....

Sandra Bullock

If we need some good players to fill out the roster, we'll just get Sandra to drive around on the "wrong side of the tracks" for a couple of hours and adopt us some more players. Thanks in advance, Sandy. 

Oh, and if the fellas get out of line...we'll just let her walk up during the middle of practice in her heels and yell at them. NBD.

And last but not least....we can't forget to get an equipment manager.

I had extremely high expectations for the first blog coming out of the bloglessness, and I must say, this certainly met my expectations. Entertaining with a whole lotta pictures! And so appropriate for this cooler fall weather and FOOTBALL SEASON. I must add though, that I would also want Ryan Gosling's character in Remember the Titans. He's just too adorable... In fact, I might be watching that movie tonight!
