|The good old days, when injuries were cured by cigarettes and scotch|
We’re in week four of the footballing season, or whatever, and my fantasy team has yet to taste the bitter sting on defeat. This last weekend I came close however, mostly because I forgot to actually check in with the football world and didn’t realize that two of my players were injured and wouldn’t play. Luckily for me, the team I was playing is terrible (and with a name like ‘Show Me Your TDs,’ of course they are).
While last week my team performed a miraculous comeback and won the day, I’m concerned that this winning streak will come to end this weekend as I’m facing the current number one team in my league. I was lucky this past week, but my luck is running out. My starting quarterback was almost taken out by the city of Detroit this Friday. Matt Stafford of the Lions was on his way to practice when he came across a very recently collapsed bridge. He had to leave his car on the highway to make it to practice on time. Now, I’m not sure how close he was to being actually hurt by this horrible accident, but reports say he was one of the first people on the scene, so it was just good timing that spared him. And me. And my team. I might be a very selfish person.
