A WHOLE NEW LEVEL OF CLUELESSNESS...

Postby IowaCubs » Mon Oct 26, 2009 1:35 pm

I would like to formally announce my retirement from Fantasy Football. This shit actually happened to me last week...

Okay, so apparently there are TWO guys in the NFL named MANNING. Apparently, I thought I was trading for PAYTON Manning, but instead somehow got the younger brother ELI Manning. So I traded my best receiver, Vincent Jackson and Matt Cassel for the shittier of the two Mannings. And for some reason, when I sent the trade, I thought I was trading for Payton.

You could feel sorry for my ignorance, but I'm not looking for pity... Only laughter and swirlies.

I suppose there's no need to introduce you to the last place team in the Razzball Virgins League.

About to become 0-7-0

P.S. Word.

At the risk of repeating an old joke -

It could have been worse.

You could have got Archie Manning.
This IS my f**king outlet!
