Courtesy of D.C. Sports Bog comes this photo of a solitary man in his seat at an empty Nationals Park. Apparently, this gent stuck around long after the game between the Washington Nationals and New York Mets had concluded on Sunday in order to finish up his fantasy football draft.
No offense to, well, pretty much everyone else on the Internet, but not only do I find fantasy football a complete waste of time, I feel that it ruins the gameday experience. And that’s not only for those playing fantasy football. It includes the unfortunate individuals who have suffer through watching football alongside the kind of fantasy football player who feels compelled to continuously check in how their players are performing.
And then, to make it even more irritating, these self-absorbed twits then have to let everybody else — who couldn’t give a crap one way or the other — in on how their team is doing. No thanks, man.
But let us redirect our focus to this guy. Do you think he looked up, groggily easing out of a haze caused by the intense amount of focus he was putting in to his fantasy football draft to be shocked to learn that the game was over and that nearly every other person in the stadium pretty much had left?
Let’s hope his ride didn’t take off on him, too.
