"I need your computer." My son is anxious. It is 1:20pm, the early games have started and he needs to check his teams. He grabs my laptop, and lays on the floor in front of the TV. He logs into his Fantasy League account and studies it. His fingers are working the keyboard and the touchpad. I lay down next to him to see his stats. I notice that he has multiple tabs open. "How many teams do you have?" I ask. "I have four teams but I wanted to set up another..." He replies as he scrolls through the lineups. "Oh I am winning on this one and getting creamed with that one." He says to me. "I have five players on late games, and my opponent only has two." He murmurs to himself. "I knew I should have traded him!" He exclaims. I watch my son bounce from one tab to tab, checking stats, projecting points and forecasting lineup changes for next week and am amazed at the concentration.

Oh by the way the amount of fantasy teams I need to manage? Zero, I just want to watch the game.
