Ben Bright in Pittsburgh: Here is a telephone conversation I had with the guy in our fantasy football league who drafted Ricky Williams five years ago and has built his team around him.

Mike: Hello?

BB: Hey Mike, just calling to give you my condolences on losing Ricky.

Mike: Ugh.

BB: Sucks pretty bad, doesn't it. You're out a bunch of money 'cause of him.

Mike: Yeah, now I have to hope William Green comes back big with Cleveland.

BB: Yeah. But I got good news for you.

Mike: Yeah, what's that?

BB: I just saved a bunch of money on car insurance by switching to Geico.

Mike: (hangs up)
