Fantasy sports. You either love them or you despise them and everyone who plays them. I have to be honest with you, I absolutely love doing fantasy football every year, but when it comes to these daily fantasy sports leagues, like DraftKings, I have never gotten into them.
The format is simple really. You pay a small price, between $1-$10, and enter the league for the night. You get a certain amount of “money” to draft a certain number of players at each position. If your players do well, you win money. If your players do REALLY well, you win a whole lot of money.
There are people who do this for a career and are making three times as much as I make in a year. They are just that into it as well as being that good with knowing their sports.
Tonight, DraftKings is hosting a MLB Moonshot Contest which the total amount of money to be awarded is $130,000 according to BroBible. The grand prize is $10,000 and over 10,000 people are guaranteed to win some form of money. The catch? It only costs three bucks to play and if you are a new user, it’s free entry.
So you mean to tell me that I can skip having one beer or that extra order of wings at the bar and possibly rack up enough money for me to call out of work for the weekend? Count me in!
I mean seriously, why isn’t this a much bigger thing and why didn’t I think of something like this before? Oh well, I guess it just another opportunity that has passed me by.
