It’s getting cold. And do you know what the cold makes me want to do? Hibernate. I want to stay on my couch with a big, fluffy blanket and a warm beverage. My husband is the same way, which is good. We’ve sort of adopted a literal Netflix and chill lifestyle at this point and, most of the time, I’m ok with that.
But there are some nights when I want something more. I mean, I definitely know I do not want to leave the coziness of my house. But it would be nice to change things up a bit sometimes once the kids are tucked into their beds.
I don’t know what your relationship is like, but my husband and I enjoy a healthy dose of competition. We enjoy a good challenge and we especially enjoy one-upping each other. Enter Yahoo Daily Fantasy, which allows us to start private fantasy sports contests with family and friends so that we can do just that.
We all know what fantasy sports are right? It’s nearly impossible to get through the month of February without hearing about the virtual teams people have cobbled together whether through painstaking statistical research or an affinity for someone’s smile (you know who you are). Yahoo Daily Fantasy makes the whole thing a little easier by having contests that last just one day rather than an entire season. This means you can try it out for one at-home date night or make it a monthly or weekly tradition.
Do you root for different teams? Why not use that rivalry and make it a little extra fun by trying to win some money from your partner (and maybe buy yourself a new pair of shoes)? Completely clueless when it comes to sports? That’s ok too! While Daily Fantasy is a game of skill and requires strategy to win, you can do a little research before picking a roster by watching videos and reading articles from seasoned Yahoo Fantasy experts.
Who knows? Once you start kicking your partner’s butt, you might kick your play up a notch and move into a 50/50 contest where the top half wins and start socking some money away for that dream vacation you’ve been talking about.
Visit the Yahoo Sports Daily Fantasy lobby and get a bonus with your first cash deposit, like a free $10 entry for this week’s Baller contest. Make sure to check out the special details at the top of the Lobby page for the current special offer.
