We Have Always Lived In The Castle. What rough beast comes slouching towards the English Premier League to be born? Is it the brash, prideful Zlatan? The wise All-Father Pep? Jose Light-Bringer? Moyes the Goblin King? Join in the annual Metafilter Fantasy Football League and cast your stones among the stars! Will the mere mortal Foxes birth a dynasty? Has Sunderland tasted enough of ash and dirt? Can the Hammers continue to climb Olympus? And what of Chelsea stirring in her Stygian pit? I saw a snake with no end devoured by a bird of flame last night, so this must be Liverpool's year. [more inside]
In case the regular FF league wasn't enough for you how about an American-style draft league? [more inside]
The Stars Are Right Again! Liverpool have spent like their pockets are on fire, Manchester City have devoured any player with a hint of English ancestry, Aston Villa's janitor has refused a new three year contract, and Arsenal is preparing for their yearly Wegner Out campaign so it must mean the new season of the Premier League is upon us! Join your fellow Mefites as we scramble for fantasy football dominance. You can sign up at the official site, create a team, and join the league. This year, we have the Classic League (code: 370477-97125) and the head-to-head Metafilter Cup (code: 370477-97129) running. Old gaffers and fresh prospects welcome! [more inside]
Are your nether regions still aglow from this summer's World Cup? Have the ritual scars from last year's dread ceremony almost healed?

Prepare to light the candles, chant the chants, and come in second to Hogtown Hotspur with the Metafilter Fantasy Football League! If you played before, just log back in to your account and you'll be back in the league. New? No problem. It's easy to play, helps you learn the game (and maybe even fall in love with a team), plus will give you another excuse to drink early on weekends. [more inside]
YOUR EAGLE IS CALLED MEFI - A story of how I gave away a twitter handle to a football club in France because their badass eagle is now called Mèfi.

This is the unofficial unsanctioned informal all-purpose FIFA World Cup 2010 (Football|Soccer) Match-Watching Meetup thread, for those who want to root for whichever team in the company of other local mefites, wherever that may be.
What was the problem with the post about the soccer player giving the finger up? I was really surprised to see that one go "poof." It wasn't high art, but it didn't seem like it was out of line.
