Why Fantasy Football Is Just Like Playing Pokemon

I'm not an active Pokemon hunter by any means, but it still irks me when people talk trash about geeky pursuits then proceed to obsess over something equally geeky yet hidden behind a veil of normalcy, like fantasy football.

The similarities between the two seem pretty obvious- both games involve an ever changing cast of characters, which you use to battle against your friends while hoping they don't suffer from a status ailment.

Both games are boring as hell to hear about when you're not a player, and those who are obsessed with the game let it bring out the worst in them even though the game itself is a waste of time.

The only thing this comic by Nathan Yaffe left out is the fact that you can win cash playing fantasy football, but it never seems to be enough to justify all the time and effort that goes into playing the game!
