After many years as a free agent, I’d like to officially announce that Yahoo! has picked me up off waivers. I’m excited to join a team of all-stars to take fantasy sports to the next level. I’ve been playing Yahoo! Fantasy since high school, and have wanted to work here since college, so this is really a dream come true for me.
At Bignoggins, I’ve always been driven to provide the best possible mobile fantasy experience. For years, players have used Fantasy Monster and Draft Monster to dominate their fantasy leagues. The great news is that the technology driving those apps will be integrated into Yahoo’s own offerings. So you’ll be able to enjoy all the features you’ve grown to love, such as mock and live drafts from your mobile device. I predict office pools will be taken to a new level this season as many discover the joys of drafting behind corporate firewalls.
If you want to check out what we’re cooking up this season, sign up for Yahoo! Fantasy football today. Also, if you’re a talented technologist and want to help us take online sports to the next level, we’re hiring!
I’d like to thank the Yahoo! team (Marissa, Adam, Zach, Jason, Steven, Brian) for giving me this amazing opportunity. The best thing about joining Yahoo! Sports is the opportunity to contend for a championship each and every season. As an entrepreneur, what could be better?
Finally, I’d like to thank my family (Adrienne, John, Lina, Tiger & Phil) for all their support. I couldn’t have done it without you guys.
