When I die, I want to be remembered as a die hard fantasy football player. My tomb could read "He always dominated the waiver wire, that bastard, maybe now someone else can win". This is pretty much what happened when Emma Bianchi of Joliet IL passed away on Dec 11, 2010.

Eleven years ago, Laureen’s then-sixth grade son started a fantasy football team and asked Emma to join it. At first, Emma didn’t quite understand the logistics and selected her players based on “He’s got such a nice German name,” or “He works so hard for his community.”
The following year, Emma went online to study statistics, chart and plot. It paid off. She won first place. Emma was champ again for the 2009-2010 season. “She kept everyone on their toes,” Laureen said. “She knew about players we hadn’t heard of.”
Is it just me or is this LOL Funny? Not that the poor old lady passed away, God rest her soul and may her family be at peace, but that an 86 year old granny was schooling her grand kids in fantasy football.. classic, just classic. I wish I could have heard the smack talk... $5 dollars off your next purchase of depends if you can guess her team name.
