This random jersey picture that was sent in by Eli Oppenheimer has all sorts of sports goodness going on. First, for someone that is such a hardcore fan that he’s willing to go to the bar by himself (don’t believe for one second that he is not there by himself. he has the spot right next to the cash register. that’s an awful spot to watch a game and one of the last choices in the bar) AND bring along his laptop you think that he’d spring the extra few bucks to get an updated New Orleans Saints jersey.
I know that Reggie Bush was awesome and all….well actually…he didn’t live up to his number two overall billing and if anything was a disappointment with the Saints…but come on. Reggie Bush is high profile enough that when he leaves your team his jersey instantly becomes extinct. I would have accepted this guy rocking a Jeremy Shockey, Joe Horn, Eddie Kennison, Jeff Blake, Aaron Brooks, Heath Shuler, Kerry Collins, Danny Wuerffel, Cam Cleeland, or even Mark Brunell Saints jersey (yes, all of those players were on the Saints at one time in their career) but I will not accept this.
As for him bringing his laptop to the bar could you put a sign up that says “I pay for porn” and “I’m a fantasy nerd” more so than this? I am in four NFL fantasy leagues, two survivor pools, one college fantasy football league, and I bet on the games and you don’t see me at the bar with a laptop. This leads me to only one obvious conclusion: he still has a Motorola Razr phone that has Magic Jack like data speeds, limited web browsing, and the game “snake“.
For all of this I say shame on you to this guy. You are giving fantasy football nerds like myself a bad name. If you’ll excuse me I’m going to check my fantasy lineup for this week even though it’s Monday and all of my guys have already played and I already know what happened in my matchups.
