Yeah, yeah, wise guy, we know: Fantasy sports are "played" online, usually when the "athlete" should be doing his real job instead of cruising the waiver wire for a second-string running back who can help carry his team into the playoffs. Why not add a social element to your fantasy life? The Post Sports & Bar Grill will host your league, and you can hold your draft in a special room, complete with a 60-inch draft board. It's so lifelike that you might pull a move just as boneheaded as drafting Chris Long and Jason Smith with the No. 2 overall pick in consecutive years! There are opportunities to win prizes and, if you really want a challenge, you can enter one of the Post's "High Stakes" leagues. The cost to enter isn't cheap — up to $1,000 — but first prize can be as much as $7,000, plus a free happy hour for you and your friends. And rather than just track your "players" online, the Post is a cool place to watch the real players do their thing: There are plenty of TVs, the beer list is decent, and the food is terrific.
