Via WFAA.com. A cautionary tale of Fantasy Football. Some people obsess over stats, team schedules, playing in a dome, and more. Then there's Steven Shrout, who decided to join his friends Fantasy Football League, never having done it before.
"It was my first year, and I didn't do any kind of studying at first. I just kind of jumped in," Shrout said.
Shrout selected LeVeon Bell as his first pick, who was expected to play with the Pittsburgh Steelers this previous season, but ended up sitting out because he and the team couldn't come to an agreement on a new contract.
Then he auto-drafted after his first pick.
"I ended up being dead last," Shrout said.
So, in Shrout's league this year (which included a $250 buy-in) the team with the worst record had to either pay the winner an additional $250 or perform a stunt that's humiliating in nature.
Which is how Steven Shrout ended up in a Dallas dog park this weekend, wearing only a gold speedo and covered in 3 jars of creamy Jif. As you can see, dog owners are completely confused, but the dogs are thinking he's a God!
