We have this friend...

...who will remain nameless. He calls every Thursday because he has a long drive. He typically calls during dinner time, dinner prep time, or post dinner clean up time. It's inevitable and we usually don't answer the phone.

Last night he called Bill. Bill didn't answer.

Then he texted Bill. Bill did not reply.

Then he called me. I didn't answer.

Then he texted me. "will u have bill call me"

Then comes the confession, from Bill. "OK, here's the thing," Bill begins.

Oh brother, this is going to be good. I start to laugh immediately because only these 2 could come up with something that involves 2 calls, 2 texts, and an explanation to precede the actual event. I'm laughing, but Bill is still serious.

"Um," he continues. "(insert friend's name here) asked me to join a Fantasy Football league. They were short one person and they weren't going to be able to have a league." Like I care who does or does not get to play Fantasy Football. Oh brother, THAT's what this is about?

Bill's team name is "The Oneders". Site the reference and/or come up with a better Fantasy Football team name.

Sorry I don't know any football references or good names for a team.

I would believe that the reference is to the band name on "That thing you do!" where they originally came up with the name "The oneder's" It was supposed to be pronounced one-ders...but everyone called them the o-needers...hence their manager changed them to 'the wonder's"

As far as fantasy football...I got nuttin!

Well done, Crystal! I LOVE your explanation on the pronunciation. Bill's football name is o-needers. (as opposed to o-neders). We probably quote some part of the movie every other day. It's a lot of fun.
