Of course, as a player you might be just fine talent-wise but your contract might not be to management’s liking. Or perhaps you’ve got the requisite amount of experience but there’s a rookie that the coaching staff is curious about. Maybe you were favoured by a previous regime and the new GM wants to impress upon the players that, “It’s My Team Now”. You could be on the Patriots and Mumble Bill cut someone else but none of the lackeys had the courage to ask for a second pronunciation. Maybe you ended up banging the backup qb’s mistress at some point and word got out.
What I’m trying to say is that, much like us mere mortals that don’t get paid to crack heads, there’s really only so much in your control. Them ‘vagaries’ of life can be a bastard, no doubt. I mean, just today I went to my favourite iced-cream place in Ottawa (Piccolo Grande Gelateria, not a sponsor) and they did not have on hand the usual chocolate peanut butter offering I desired. That’s kinda the same thing, right?
Anyhoo, there’s a whack-ton of games on the sked that don’t mean much to you and I but mean everything to (let’s say) Franky Upstart from South Rodrigo State. The special teams’ coach loves his hustle and work ethic and Franky sure as heck doesn’t want to pump gas back in his hometown again this year. I can’t remember which team he’s on so I’ll just list all the games being played and you can go look for him. Hell, there’s probably some version of the fella on the squadron that you support.
The games in question are-Cle/Vage, Itsa/Boy, Momma/Mia, NYJ/Phi, NEW/Jackcity, Jax/Thebox, Car/Pet, Wash/Yourballs, Thai/Chi, LAC/Kingsubstance, Barbi/Dal, Oak/Tree, KC/BBQ and TEN/ToThree.
