Last night was a tough one for me. It was storming out and I lost power for several hours just as the MNF game was about to start. After using the glow of my cell phone to find my flashlight, I called Trout and listened to him describe to me how Arizona was just crushing the Bears in the first half. This was notably dissapointing considering that I had money on Chicago (-11). Additionally, was feeling quite comfortable Monday morning trailing by six points in one fantasy league (team Chad for President) with only Grossman and Berrian left to play for me, and suddenly not so much.
At least - I thought - Chicago will lose to a garbage team and I can rub it in to all my Bears fan friends. But alas, the Bears somehow pull out a miracle win which can only be described as "complete and utter bullshit." I lose my bet which I had given up on early and Grossman comes in with 4 picks and 2 fumbles. Are you fucking kidding me? The grand total on the night: -10 fantasy points. Berrian got all of one point. That's right, I went into a game needing only six points from a QB/WR combo and got -9. We're going to get the fellas out on the field running some windsprints this week after that performance.
The moral of the story is never ever ever support anything from Chicago. Its only mission in life is to screw you over. And if you don't believe me ask a Cubs fan. Good god. New gambling rules: don't take anybody giving up 10 or more points and don't road favorites.
Seriously, get out of my face Rex, before I do something I regret.
