It's that time of year again for The Ford: Fantasy season.

But, "Wait a gol-durned minnit," you say, dear reader. (The Ford's anachronisms are rubbing off, aren't they?) "Isn't every Saturday night fantasy season for The Ford?"

No, no, it's fantasy BASEBALL season.

The Ford's got some teams. He's even flying to The Official Ex-Hometown of The Official Blog of The Ford in a couple of weeks to take part in a draft.

Like you didn't know The Ford is a dork.

But at least he's not the only one.

There's also columnist Bill Simmons, who's in a celebrity fantasy basketball league with luminaries such as Star Jones, Pam Anderson and Matthew Modine. Plus, there's Bernie Mac and Michael Rappaport, folks The Ford would expect to know fantasy hoops. Says Simmons: "I own Bernie Mac and Michael Rappaport in's fantasy league to the point that I might pay taxes on them next month just to be safe."

I really don't know which is better: the thought of Pamela Anderson playing fantasy basketball, or the thought of Bernie Mac trash-talking over said fantasy basketball.

The Ford must become a celebrity and join this league, posthaste.

You have been warned.

For some reason this reminded me of a particularly awful episode of "Arliss" (I won't use the dollar signs in place of the S's). I think the celebrity in the league was Jonathan Silverman. Also it was a National League-only league. You never really see many AL only leagues, do you?

I have no point. I'm just sharing.

Speaking as a guy who a) is flying back to old turf for a draft and b) said draft is in an AL-only league...isn't The Ford a celebrity already?
