An ode to Rafi

If any of you have ever seen the TV show “The League” on FX, or FXX…or whatever the hell network it is.  Anyway, the show  is about some friends who participate in a fantasy football league.  It shows what people are willing to do in order to win in their respective fantasy sports league.  Obviously the numbers on real life fantasy football are astounding, with something around 30+ million people participating.  The primary age group, yep, 25-34 year old American males.
