The 7th Annual All Girls Fantasy Football League


All of your instagram DMs and twitter messages are about to be answered...
YES!!! It's time for the....
7th Annual All Girls Fantasy Football League
| A Few Important Things to Note |

1. The draft for LEAGUE ONE will take place at 7PM EST on WEDNESDAY SEPTEMBER 4, 2019.

2. The draft for LEAGUE TWO will take place at 9pm EST on WEDNESDAY SEPTEMBER 4, 2019.

Please make sure you are available to draft your team at this time.

2. You are required to update your roster each week.
If at any point, your team goes 3 consecutive weeks without a roster update, you will be disqualified from winning any money. With that said, I of course understand mistakes from week to week, I've made large ones in the past.

3. This is first come first served.
I've already had tons of people inquire about our Fantasy Football league this season, so sign up below. First come first served.

4. This is NO LONGER a giant league
In prior years, I set the league up for 20 roster spots so that I can accommodate the maximum number of women possible. Like last year though, I decided to just bite the bullet and admin two leagues. I don't love doing that, but - I JUST CARE TOO MUCH ABOUT Y'ALL'S FANTASY FOOTBALL HAPPINESS!

5. Come prepared with an A+ Fantasy Football Team Name

6. Buy In || Pay Out
Buy In = $20/person
Pay Out= $200 to 1st, $60 to 2nd, $20 to 3rd
All money will be collected through VENMO upon signup - VENMO @IAMSARAHMIZE

Going forward, we will now be using the ESPN platform for our league.

The Best Place to Watch the 2019 Kentucky Derby in Dallas

Ok friends, it's that time of year - Kentucky Derby Time in Dallas! If you live in Dallas, I have just the Derby party for you. WAIT, I take that back, this is THE ONLY DERBY PARTY YOU NEED TO KNOW ABOUT IN DALLAS. Think delicious Mint Juleps from Maker's Mark, the best Derby watch party with a huge projection screen and even costume contests, including for dogs! Plus, great drink happy hour pricing drink specials through the end of the Kentucky Derby.  If you're looking for where to watch the 2019 Kentucky Derby, look no further than Dallas Love List's Kentucky Derby Watch Party in Deep Ellum at Mama Tried. 

If you aren't lucky enough to make it to the actual Derby, Dallas Love List is throwing a big party in our very own backyard of Deep Ellum, Texas!

Subtle brag coming in 3...2...1.... I actually went to the Kentucky Derby thanks to this little blog of mine back in 2014.  It was one of the greatest experiences of my entire life and most certainly a bucket list checkmark!

Dallas Love List's big Kentucky Derby party is going to be as close as we get to the real thing here in Texas, and here is why...

There will be TWO COSTUME THEMES. One is fancy, one is getting down and DERBY!

1."Millionaires Row" Ticket - find an amazing hat, grab your prettiest dress, pull out that seersucker bowtie because you're going to the fancy side of the Derby - Millionaires Row. Go all out, because best dressed wins great prizes! THIS TICKET INCLUDES A FANCY, CLASSIC MINT JULEP UPON ENTRY.

2."The Infield" Ticket - Dust off the ole' jorts because you're ready to party, INFIELD style. Think apparael for a Nascar race: jean shorts, cowboy boots, flannel shirts with the sleeves ripped off (because you flexed, I assume). THIS TICKET INCLUDES A BEER AND A SHOT OF BOURBON UPON ARRIVAL.

This is obviously a come as you are party, but feel free to wear a costume too. It is basically just an excuse to get us all in the same place to make new friends and have one awesome party in the name of the Derby!

- Entry into the party with a big watch party screen for the greatest two minutes in sports
- Complimentary Maker’s Mark Mint Julep Or a Lonestar Beer + Shot of Maker’s, depending on which ticket theme you choose!
- Drink specials all afternoon including $2.50 beers, $6 Maker's Mark Mint Juleps and HAPPY HOUR PRICING through the end of the race! ⠀⠀
- Two ticket themes - Get Fancy 👗 in “Millionaire’s Row” or Get down and dirty 🍻 with an “Infield Ticket” ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
- Dog friendly with prize raffle benefiting @OperationKindness for a staycation @TheAdolphusHotel
- Costume contests for great prizes!

Grab your tickets HERE so you don't have to buy them at the door!
