Fantasy Baseball for Women
Baseball boyfriend hopes to make fantasy more girl-friendly
Let's get this out of the way: we at BSC think fantasy sports are equally fun for men, women, the young, the old, the club-footed and the normals.
The joy that is watching a handpicked squad eat it week after week against opponents who don't even bother starting half their team? That's universal.
That said, Baseball Boyfriend might be the perfect gateway drug for lady players not ready to kick their fantasy addiction to smack status.
A supplemental app and mini-game to any CBS fantasy baseball league, Baseball Boyfriend lets you pick one player from your current fantasy squad each night.
Congratulations — that player is now your boyfriend! In addition to virtually owning this hunk of man meat, you'll score points for his nightly ... performance.
As the season goes on, you can choose to dump him or keep him, depending on how your new BBBF is doing against the others in your league.
Whether Baseball Boyfriend will be a hit among men as well as women, who knows. But we can't wait to get our hands on Albert Pujols. Rawr!
