If you’re a football fan and haven’t yet seen the manner of the Jaguars’ epic win over the Texans yesterday, well, this post isn’t for you — The range of reasonable excuses for that is so remote that we refuse to enable the apathy exhibited by your football fandom (or lack thereof).
That said, however, we have no qualms about throwing this bone out there: A lovely reenactment of yesterday’s sensational finale via one of the greatest — if not the greatest — football video game of all time. Complete with the call from Gus Johnson (my god, can you imagine what Tecmo Bowl would’ve been like with Gus Johnson play-by-play?!?!?!?).
Sure, we all do (don’t we?), but we also need to be aware of the potential drawbacks.
It’s true: As an NFL player you may get all the fancy ladies, and the clothes, and the free creams and lotions — but you could also end up with a finger like the Jags’ Torry Holt up there (It looks like that permanently, Frumpsters).
Yeah, so for all of you out there thinking about trying out at your favorite franchise’s mini-camp this weekend — and I know there’s at least handful of ya — consider this your public service announcement for the day foreseeable future.
Rumor has it that during Holt’s days at N.C. State he used to tie one arm behind his back during receiving drills. That may or may not help explain things.
