On Wednesday, I sent the following text to a bunch of my ESPN friends and colleagues. This is what it said: Doing a goofy Scott Niedermayer Womens Jersey thing for my column tomorrow where I am asking various colleagues to ask me one question -- a self-made interview, if you will -- and I will answer them in my column with attribution. So, if you have a moment, can you ask me one question? Ask anything you want ... about me, about fantasy, about you, about literally anything you might be slightly curious about me or anything else. I'll print under your name and answer. That coolI got so many great questions, I am actually saving some of them to do this again. But here are some of the unedited questions I got back -- and my responses: Tim Hasselbeck (NFL analyst, Fantasy Football Now co-host): I'm sure you get a ton of people telling you that you have the greatest job in the world, being able to talk fantasy all of the time. What is the best part and worst part of the "job"? Also, are you worried about losing to me in Red Zone this year? TMR: As two-time champ of our Fantasy Football Now (Sundays, 10 a.m.-1 p.m. ET on ESPN2) Red Zone competition, I'm good for now, though you are off to a hot start. Talk to me midseason. With the understanding these are all very high-class problems, the "worst" parts of my job: The schedule is demanding. I work seven days a week; being in the public eye means you always have to be "on" and answer someone's questions about their team even if you're exhausted, look like crap and just want to grab a late-night taco or use a public restroom at a concert. I love this column, but it's like a 5,000-word term paper due every week. Many facets of social media are also taxing, along with http://www.authenticducksstore.com/shawn-horcoff-jersey_c-428.html the idea that I am supposed to win every league I'm in or nail every single prediction. I'm human. The best parts of my job are way too numerous to mention, but here's a quick list: people I've met both at ESPN and because of the job, the best podcast fans anywhere in the world, the absolute blast that is the daily TV show, getting to do things like FF Now on Sunday and then watch football all day with NFL legends, walking the halls of ESPN every day. I mean, hell -- the fact that I actually get paid to talk fantasy football all day. It's stupid how lucky I amMR: If the process and analysis were good, I'm bummed but can live with it even if the result wasn't what I predicted. Process > Result. But I get mad when I've missed something in the data or film that would have helped me get to a better prediction. But I'm human and always learning. I make more than 200 calls on players a week, so it's impossible to nail them all. So I try to remember that and forgive myself. Also, staying off social media helps. But yeah -- when you have a big miss (and I had a few doozies last week), it sucks. Matt Barrie (SportsCenter): What was your legitimate reaction when you heard an anchor with the same name was getting hired? TMR: Honest answer is I was legit upset. I have a whole issue with my name, and I thought ESPN wouldn't hire someone else http://www.nflbengalsofficialshop.com/Nike-Brandon-Lafell-Jersey.html named, say, Jay Bilas or anyone they cared about. So I thought it was ESPN sending me a message. Then I saw you on air and met you and I was like: Great, he's really good on air. And he's super nice. I can't hate anything about this guy. It was, and remains, super annoyingyou had to remove the "dame" from one of them, whom would it be? Dame Judi Dench OR Dame Helen Mirren. And there is definitely a right answer here. TMR: It's Judi Dench. Obviously. Have you ever Googled Helen Mirren? She's had a crazy life. No disrespect to Judi Dench, but Helen Mirren is super awesome. By the way, starting a petition now for "Dame Michelle BeadleTMR: Tough one! I actually don't play anywhere else but ESPN. I have in the past, but it's been a number of years since I've played elsewhere, so I'm not sure what else is out there. I've mentioned this before, but a rule I've played with (in a league we kept by hand) was the potential for two wins every week: one head-to-head against your opponent and another for the top five scorers (assuming a 10-team league) in a given week. So every week you either go 2-0, 1-1 or 0-2. That evens out good or bad teams being helped or hurt by scheduling. I am second overall in points in the 12-team internal staff league we have here but 1-2 because of awful scheduling luck. Drives me nutsTMR: I would probably say my marriage proposal, which was on a beach two years to the day we first met, in the town that we went to on our trip together, but I figured this was a better question for my wife. So here's what Beth said when I asked her: "When I was eight months pregnant with the twins and I felt just disgusting and needed help even getting off the couch I was so enormous, we were watching TV one night and you Brandon Thompson Jersey put your hand on my belly, turned to me and said, 'I don't think you've ever looked more beautiful than you do right now
