Where's Nate?

living large in the four-oh-eight. wicked large.



As I sit here staring at my NCAA bracket, I can't help but ponder how the explosion of the Internet has revolutionized fantasy sports. I can't help pondering this because I can't really begin to make sense of this year's seedings and matchups.

Back in the day, I used to sit in front of the TV with a blank bracket on Selection Sunday. The only fantasy baseball I played was Strat-O-Matic. And I didn't dream of rooting for any players on any team outside of San Francisco (and Philly, a long story). The Internet changed all that.

Now it's too easy. At the blink of an eye, I'm in a half dozen March Madness pools with hundreds (if not thousands) of other anonymous souls. I set my teams and check back for live updates. And I'm not alone. Millions upon millions of casual fans are lining up to play every fantasy sport from baseball to football, NASCAR to golf.

But the drama isn't gone. In a sense, it's only beginning.
