Rocking the Fantasy Football World

Over there years, there has been a strange  bond between the NFL and music that seems to be growing .  Of course, there is always the Super Bowl halftime show… some being more controversial than others.  It makes sense when you consider that both are forms of entertainment, but the spread of Fantasy Football is a whole different ball game, so to speak.

Apparently, ESPN is mixing the world of Rock Music and Fantasy Football by putting together a league consisting several music legends, as well as a few sports writers. Here’s a list of participating “Rock Stars” and their team names:

Aroma of Tacoma – Jerry Cantrel (Alice in Chains)
M.I Evil? Yes I Am – Mike Inez (also of Alice in Chains)
McKagan D – Duff McKagan (Guns ‘N Roses, Velvet Revolver)
Mean Machine – Scott Ian (Anthrax)
The Brickwall – Vinnie Paul (Pantera)
Team 9 – Kenny Arnoff (Elton John, Smashing Pumpkins, the Rolling Stones)
KWS Domination – Kenny Wayne Shepherd
Doom Crew Inc. – Zakk Wylde (Ozzy Osbourne, Black Label Society)

Of course, it’s all “for charity”, although it sounds like they’re has been a fair amount of smack talking so far.  Each participant is donating an item to a charity that the winner of the league will chose.  If you’re a Fantasy Football dork like me, and think this is hilarious, you can go check out the league page and keep up with their season: http://games.espn.go.com/ffl/leagueoffice?leagueId=547015
