Pastors Like Football, Too

Even though we work on Sundays, lots of pastors are football fans. In fact, plopping down on the couch in front of the game can be the perfect way to unwind from a long Sunday morning.

With this in mind, I've created a Fantasy Football league for clergy, seminary students, church professionals, and anybody else who wants to play. The league, "Touchdown Jesus" (no affiliation with Notre Dame) is run through the Sports Illustrated app on Facebook, and it's public, so you anyone can join. Click here if you want to play.

I would play... but my football preferences are the Saturday college games. I just can't get into pro football!

It means I have nothing to rush home to watch after church... but it can make a rather interesting counterpoint for sermon prep on Saturday evenings =P

I'm in. UM pastor up in Alaska here. Used to do both fantasy football and baseball. Loved baseball but it took too much time. Just dabbled in fantasy football over the last several years.

Matt, you are a little late with the invitation, I accepted another clergyman's invite last week. Ask me again next year, I would love to play against a local colleague.

Katie, I'm more of a college football fan as well. The nice thing is that I've been following college football for so long that all the players I remember are now in the NFL.
