I haven’t played fantasy sports since I was in high school, way back in the early 1990s. When I did, the prize was trash-talking your friends after you made the big trade that propelled you to first place.
Fantasy sports might as well be a job these days. Consider Park Ridge’s Don Metter. He won $75,000 for being the best in the Fantasy Football Players Championship. He will be presented with a cartoon-sized check Sunday at Real Time Sports Bar and Grill in Elk Grove.
