ROSELAND, NJ—Noting that most of his friends have now paid him the $20 they each owed him, local 29-year-old Matt Fanelli confirmed Friday that he is almost done collecting the full $200 prize from winning his “Cowher’s Stache” ESPN fantasy football league in 2005. “I had to keep reminding Andrew about it, but I finally got his share a few months ago, and then I remembered Dave bought me a sandwich in the summer of 2008, so I just counted that as his payment,” said Fanelli, adding that his college roommate Jerry Maynard—whom he hasn’t seen in six years and has since reportedly moved to Denver, gotten married, and started a career in real estate—still owes him $10 from the league buy-in. “I’ve emailed Aaron a few different times over the past eight or so years, and he always says he’ll definitely get the 20 bucks to me the next time we see each other. I just need to stay on top of it, otherwise I’ll get screwed over.” Fanelli added that he still plans to put his winnings toward buying a new Michael Strahan New York Giants jersey.
