Tonight the Green Bay Packers played the Dallas Cowboys. (shhh!! I know that's a bad word in our house, what with Coach being a die-hard Redskins fan and all), and needless to say....
Coach once again was not pleased with the outcome of an NFL game. Is it too much to ask for the Redskins to win more and the Cowboys to lose more? Honestly, what would it take? My firstborn? A kidney? My firstborn's kidney?? Trust me, Coach would absolutely think it was worth the sacrifice! And though it was really difficult for him to admit, Coach did give Tony Romo credit for being a good quarterback. Its just too bad he's playing for such an inherently evil team.
So I asked him (Coach, not Tony Romo)..... if you could create a team of the WORST players, to guarantee your team would win every time, who would you put on that team? Its kinda like fantasy football, only backwards. He looked at me like I had proposed changing the standard uniform of the NFL to pink tutus for all the players, with the refs in Speedos!
He sat there for a few minutes, trying to think of who he thought sucked enough to be on that team. He named a few players (and the only one I can remember right now is Brian Griese, sorry!), but surprisingly *or not so much, considering the true-blue fandom of this man* he did not list a single Redskins player. And everyone knows that everyone on that team has consistently sucked for at least one solid season played on that team. No really... its a fact. Go Google it. I'll wait.
Oh, you're back? What? You couldn't find that? Well, I suppose its possible that its just my opinion, formed by years of proving how much I love my husband by constantly cheering for any team that is beating his Redskins. Don't want him to get too comfortable in his team support, you know. If he's constantly defending them, he's always watching for the best things they do. That way, he might miss the bad stuff. See? Makes sense to me.
Anyway, all of this to say he COULDN'T build a fantasy sucky team. He tried, but he could only put a couple of players on it. Guess this proves one thing, though.
I still have what it takes to leave that man speechless. (What? You thought I was going to make this post TOTALLY about football? Puh-leaze!)
