I just realized that I've been out of school for 7 years now...

I wish I had put forth more effort. I could have been a good fullback if I'd tried harder. Instead, I was stuck on the interior line and hated it. Tore my MCL junior year and never looked back.

Sounds awesome! Unfortunately the boss at home has strictly forbidden me to ever play again since I tore my Achilles playing for the company I worked at in flag football many years ago. I could not drive or put weight on it for over a month. She had to do everything.

Now I'm demoted to just torturing the nephews with endless Al Bundy stories......

Good luck to those that do and post some pictures

Hate to say, but that's why I quit football.

You mean I have to practice 4 times a week in the heat, then in the cold, for 1 game? And at WR in 1987, I might get 1 pass?

Or you mean I can play baseball and basketball in a controlled environment, practice hard twice a week and play 2 games?

Shiiiit

If I could play again ... nobody would turn the corner runnin wide on my side, I'd have so many pass-rushing moves that I didn't know existed then, and I would punish receivers who came into my zip code ... ah, true fantasy football.
