The NFL season kicks off tonight when the Patriots and Chiefs take the field in Foxboro. But that's of secondary importance, because the game also marks the start of the fantasy football season.
Baseball was once America's national pastime. At some point football surpassed it. Now, that honor belongs to fantasy football, the time-consuming hobby that can make people watch even the most meaningless game between the Browns and Rams on a rainy Sunday afternoon.
This time of year, with the draft over and games yet to being, the most important part about running a fantasy football team is giving it a hilarious name.
And today we're honoring the funniest ones we've seen ahead of the 2017 fantasy season.
