This episode we fire up the DeLorean and head back to explore the history of fantasy football.  Millions of people across the globe play fantasy football each year, but how many of them know how and when the game was founded?  It may surprise you a little to find out some of the details behind the fateful first draft back in the early 1960's.  So strap on your seat belt, and let’s get ready to take this baby up to 88mph.
