The 2016 NFL Year In Review

Posted by admin - 28/12/16 at 02:12 pm

My new sports humor column is up today, it’s in the pages of the Tyler Morning Telegraph, and also online at their website.

It’s my end-of-year timeline, featuring hopefully funny observations like…

APRIL: On day two of the draft, chaos rules as the Cowboys take a guy who won’t play this year, Tampa Bay trades up to grab a kicker, and Oakland drafts a goalie. Somewhere along the way, Dallas stumbles into drafting two different MVP candidates, thereby using up all of their luck for the next hundred years.

MAY: The Cowboys find out Randy Gregory has been suspended for four games for violating the NFL’s substance abuse policy, after originally failing his scheduled drug test at the NFL Draft Combine, which is like showing up for church drunk.

SEPTEMBER: Football returns to Los Angeles after more than twenty years away. The Rams celebrate their new home losing by four touchdowns to a team that can only beat the Rams. L.A. fans celebrate by looking at their phones.

Check it out in print or online, kids.
