On Twitter, there are many memes, most of which involve unrepentant punnery. (The rest are just Wale-related hashtags.) Last night some memes broke out combining two things very near and dear to my heart - indie bands and fantasy sports. And so here are a handful of the best #indiefantasyfootballteams and #indiefantasybaseball teams.

Archers of Lohse #indiefantasybaseballteams

Adrian Peterson's Haunted Graffiti #indiefantasyfootballteams
