I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again: the most underrated aspect of the NFL lockout ending is that we get Fantasy Football in 2011.
What else would I have done with my Sunday afternoons?
Now, I can dominate with my 60″ flatscreen TV (Eagles), one iPad (DirecTV NFL Sunday Ticket app tuned to the Red Zone channel), one laptop (multitasking between ESPN.com fantasy football live scoring and Tweetdeck for streaming scoring, news and injury updates), and one iPhone (in case I miss anything else) setup.
Don’t judge. Your employees are doing it too. And here are some great blog posts about Fantasy Football and the workplace:
- Happy New Year! Or, Happy First Day of (Fantasy) Football from Dan Schwartz at the Connecticut Employment Law Blog
- Fantasy Football = Increase in Engagement? from HR News & Views Blog
- Does fantasy football affect workplace productivity? from the LA Times’ Tiffany Hsu
Don’t forget, you can still sign up for The Employer Handbook NFL Survivor Pool.
