This invitation will work a lot better–and be a lot more exciting–if you open this video (HINT: it’s Jock Jams) in a separate window before continuing to read.

“And look at him go, and look at him go. He could. Go. All. The. Way.”

After a successful inaugural season in 2012, the AllGBP.com Official Fantasy Football League is back for round two.

We made history a year ago. First, we instituted this prestigious league. And second, we successfully badgered The Boss into playing Fantasy Football for the very first time. Jersey Al used a team-first approach in assembling a group of guys who valued friendship and hustle. As a result, his team went 7-6 in the regular season and earned a spot in the playoffs.

From the Writers Division, Adam Czech and I joined Al in the playoffs. Here are last year’s standings for the Writers:

2012 Writers Division
*1. Rockwood Lodge (9-4)
 Marques Eversoll
*2. The Gilbert Browns (7-6) Adam Czech
*3. St. Cecilia’s HS (7-6) Jersey Al
4. Jordy’s Stiff Arm (6-7) Chad Toporski
5. Calvinball (5-8) Thomas Hobbes
6. Salute Your Jorts (4-9) Kris Burke
* Playoff berth

My team, “Rockwood Lodge” racked up a league-leading 1624 points last season but laid an egg in the playoffs. Unfortunately for the content-producing side of the league, our combined playoff record was 0-3.

The Readers Division ran right through the postseason. Despite top-seeded “Finley Named My Kids” losing a 1.52-point heartbreaker in his first playoff game, the Readers went 5-2 in the playoffs, boasting the league champion “Touched By Ted Thompson.” The champs won the league despite not having a single Green Bay Packer on the final roster.

Here’s how the Readers ended up last season:

2012 Readers Division
*1. Finley Named My Kids (11-2)
 Sam Goodwin
*2. TouchedByTedThompson (8-5) QOTSA1
*3. Lambeau’s Legends (7-6) HBuff
4. Milwaukee Packers (5-8) Abraham
5. SuperBowl or Bust (5-8) topgbpackfan
6. Cheeseheads (4-9) Matt Bove
* Playoff berth
League champion

Now, one-time Fantasy Ice Bowl Champion Ian, will look to defend his title in 2013 in a 14-team league.

AllGBP added Jason Perone to the staff after the beginning of last year’s fantasy season, so in appreciation of Jason’s ongoing contributions to the site and his overall swell character, he’s being welcomed as the seventh member of the Writers Division. To balance it out, we’ll be adding another team to the Readers side as well.

The draft will take place one week from today on August 18 at 7:00pm Central.

The format of the league will be as follows: 

NOTE: There will be a Prize for the Winner of a $100 Gift Certificate to the Packers Pro Shop and an ALLGBP.com T-shirt!

  • “Writers Division” (myself, Jersey Al, Chad, Adam, Kris, Thomas and Jason)

      You know Cow, I used to want you banned because I thought you were a closed Vikings fan. Now I know that this is not the case. You’re just being you. You’re a weird guy, but you are good to have around.

      Even if you are wrong 500% of the time. 😉

    I’d like to be in a league with some new blood. I have been playing FF since 1992 when I used to have to do league stats by hand from the box scores.

    I’ll even provide a 6 pack of Wisconsin craft beer to the league winner. I wonder what kind I’ll be drinking…
