Is There Ever a Bad Time to Include Women in a Fantasy?

Like many football fans, I'm involved in a fantasy football league. Like many football fans, I'm also slightly ashamed of that fact. While there are certainly enjoyable aspects of the league- the comradarie with old friends, the trash talking, participating in legalized gambling, etc., there are also many shameful aspects of playing fantasy football. At the top of the list is when you're at a sports bar and the guy wearing a Redskins jersey cheers when Marion Barber scores a touchdown and the guy wearing a Cowboys jersey cheers when Clinton Portis scores a touchdown because they have those respective players on their fantasy team. That's just deplorable.

This year, my fantasy football league is considering holding their annual draft at Hooters. At first, this seemed like a stroke of genius. Being surrounded by beer, boobs and tubes is a great way to spend any day. But on the flip-side, fantasy football is inherently geeky; and if you're going to be a dork all day, do you really want to do it in front of a bunch of hot women? That's probably not the best practice to get into.

I'm torn on the issue. What are your thoughts?

It's pretty geeky, but I wouldn't worry about the "hot women" factor. I've noticed over the years how much Hooter's has gone downhill.

The girls there now seem to always have one or two things wrong with them. (Smashed face, pancake butt, bug eyes, etc...)

I'm sure many of you would agree with me. And if you don't, you're just too old.
