Engineering my return to Fantasy Football through Proxycasting

Are you ready for some Fantasy Football? I know I am!

This year, I am participating in the Couple Things Podcast Fantasy Football League. The draft happened just days ago, and the season is upon us…

Every once in a while I have to beat NFL Street

NFL Street 1 Nintendo Gamecube

NFL Street, the original on GameCube is a game that I thoroughly enjoy. Even once in a while I get the urge to beat it and recently I got the urge.

I pretty much play it the same way every time. I go through the challenges and build up my custom team, complete with naming my characters.

I’m amazed by some games like this.
