Thrillist Puts Fun In Fantasy Football


Nonsensical headline? Sure. It doesn't matter when you're invited to partake in a fantasy football draft at a luxurious hotel suite as a guest of Thrillist and Yahoo Sports. Which is exactly what happened to me a few weeks ago as I was treated to the blush-inducing sorts of spoils and riches that kings typically get. Grotesque amounts of the delicious, sCheerleader.jpgavory, cardiac-arrest-inducing food stuffs? Check. Free booze? Check. Gratuitously attractive and scantily-clad Yahoo! cheerleaders? [cursory glance to picture at immediate right] Check.

For most guys fantasy football drafts have, in a sense, become an annual bacchanal: part bachelor party, part sports talking B.S. session and all fun; and Thrillist and Yahoo Sports! certainly ratcheted those aspects up by providing some of Chicago's luckiest sports fans with a chance at having a fantasy draft war room/man cave all to themselves. Well-played, Internet news/cultural/sports companies.
