Perhaps helping you enjoy this weekend was the return of football. All over the country, colleges and universities put their teams on the field for the first time this weekend, and the professionals will get their season started in a few days.
Last August, The Hollywood Reporter reported that over 27 million fans participate in a fantasy football league each year, and that fantasy football has become a $1 billion business. Are you one of the 27 million that have at least one fantasy team? If so, leave your best team name in our comments section!
Football fans should also remember to follow us on Twitter. Last week, five lucky people from all over the country won jerseys of their favorite team. All you have to do to win this week is tell us why you love your favorite team with #pcbjersey in the tweet.
