THE LEAD:

We took our show down to the Emerald Queen Casino in Tacoma today as we set the stage for our second annual Fantasy Football Camp with John Clayton later this evening.

fantasy campWe had “The Professor” on the show today, and he talked about his own experience playing fantasy football.

Although he joined a league in 1986, he soon found out that he didn’t have enough time to successfully manage a fantasy football team while also covering the Seahawks for the Tacoma News Tribune.

“That was the last time I got myself involved in it,” Clayton admitted. “But as time went on, then you realize: this stuff is exploding. And you’ve got to be smart about this stuff, and so I made sure that I kinda kept on top of not the rules, but what people wanted to find out about. … I cared about all of the moves and transactions, because I always wanted to cover baseball, and Hot Stove League stuff was great. Then I found out that the offseason stuff in football far surpassed [baseball], because everybody cares about every transaction, everybody cares about every move, and they want to find out about it.”

Now there’s no one in the business that knows more about all 32 NFL rosters, so if you were lucky enough to get a ticket to tonight’s sold-out event, you’ll already be one step ahead of the competition.

(Assuming, of course, that no one else in your league was in attendance tonight.)

IN OTHER NEWS:

Earlier in the show, we were joined by two-time PGA Tour Player of the Year (1993, 1994) Nick Price, who is in town for this weekend’s Boeing Classic out at the TPC at Snoqualmie Ridge.

nick priceWe talked to Price about his rise to success in the early 90s, in which he held the No. 1 spot in the Official World Golf Rankings for 43 weeks.

“When I went out each week, I felt that if I played well I had a really good chance to win,” Price said of his 1994 season. “It was fun. It was probably the only time in my life where I ever felt like Tiger Woods did when he was winning so prolifically.”

Price will be paired with local hero Fred Couples and Germany’s Bernhard Langer in Friday’s opening round of the Boeing Classic.

Couples and Langer, of course, battled one another in the final round of the U.S. Senior Open that was held at Sahalee Country Club in Sammamish just four weeks ago, in which Langer came out victoriously.
