Here we go again ladies and gentlemen on another fantasy hockey quest. The goal was to give a traveling account of women who play fantasy sports but particularly fantasy hockey naturally. Last time were were in the LA area. Now our search on this part of the adventure took us back to a person who was originally from Western Pennsylvania and a diehard Pittsburgh Penguins fan. Imagine their horror in watching the Penguins lose their first round battle with the Philadelphia Flyers but compared to the fantasy horror this lady experienced, I do not want to be in her league next year.
So everyone, meet Karen Rice, fantasy sports player since 2001 and someone who took some time off and then came back. Here is her story and how she answered “our ten questions”.
1. What level of fantasy player best describes you?
experience this year?
woman well in competitive situations?
fantasy hockey league?
Don’t be afraid to try it out! Its seriously a ton of fun. If you don’t know a lot about hockey, let your team get drafted for you through auto-draft and see where it takes you. I really think that it made me pay attention to what was going on with the league in general more and it gave me a deeper understanding of the game itself. I found myself looking up different rules during games on Wikipedia because I found that I was curious about what an announcer was talking about. It made me pay attention to other teams than the Penguins as well…which is probably for the best.
Who will we have next week? Stay tuned to find out but I am sure their story will be quite the interesting one. If you know a woman with some fantasy hockey acumen that you would like spotlighted, send us an email at firstname.lastname@example.org. One never knows, they may just appear right on this column.
