I have four fantasy Tour de France teams.
That's probably two too many, but it's fun and helps hold my interest in the three-week bike race.
Fantasy sports also can liven up a season when the home team (say, the Cubs or the Sox) is disappointing. Having Anthony Rizzo on your fantasy team gives you a reason to look at the box score every day. (Disclosure: I have Rizzo and Chris Sale on my team this season. The lack of White Sox run support on days Sale pitches is infuriating.)
Do you have a fantasy baseball team this summer? What kind of league are you in?
Or are you already looking forward to the fantasy football season? Do you play with a group of friends in the suburbs or in an online league? How do you conduct your draft?
Do you play in any of the more offbeat fantasy leagues, such as the Tour de France, golf or auto racing?
