More and more of us play fantasy football nowadays. In every league there is a prize for the winner. In most leagues, there is something embarrassing for the loser. For instance, in my work league, the loser has to sign all emails with a signature voted on by the league, and he has to pick up the first round of drinks at next year’s draft.
I know what you’re thinking: not bad, right? I concede that, but there are some that range from bizarre, to cruel, to both.I know of a league that makes the loser be the chore slave of the winner for a whole week, and to the runner-up for a weekend. I declined to join that league for obvious reasons. If I’m going to do landscaping, it is going to be on my own house!
Such as this one. An as-yet unidentified man was forced to post some embarrassing pictures to Instagram. He had to make his own private calendar, showing him re-enacting a pose from the ESPN Body Issue:
This one has him re-enacting the iconic photo of Brandi Chastain from the 1999 World Cup.
The rest of the photos can be seen on this poor man’s account here. At least he had a great sense of humor about the whole thing!
So the moral of the story is: know what the penalty is for taking last place in your league before signing up, and read all of the advice columns you can.
Don’t be this guy!
