Muttiah Muralitharan is, as far as I can tell, Roger Clemens, Barry Bonds and Jackie Robinson all rolled into one. He's Clemens because he's regarded as perhaps the greatest of all time while still playing near his peak. He's Bonds because many in his sport regard him as a cheater. And he's Robinson because through his athletic excellence he has helped unite a violently divided nation. And I had never heard of him until Tuesday. Muralitharan is a Sri Lankan cricket star regarded by many as the greatest "bowler" of all time.

So what to do for the fantasy junkie robbed of his or her chief imaginary pursuits? It's an annual dilemma and I offer here a few coping strategies (though this list is hardly exhaustive.) 1) Abstain. I know it sounds radical, but you could just not think about fantasy sports for the next month to six weeks. It's cheap, and it'll make your boss and significant other happy.
