So the passing of Labour Day is always
00:02
a bittersweet time of year.
00:04
On one hand, sadly, float season is over.
00:07
On the other hand, a new NFL season begins,
00:10
and there's a good chance your fantasy football team
00:13
will rely on at least a couple of golfers.
00:15
After getting the first pick of my draft,
00:17
I was probably gonna take Antonio Brown
00:19
of the Pittsburgh Steelers, but this photo
00:22
of AB with AP sealed the deal.
00:25
Wait, are they not drinking Arnold Palmers?
00:28
That's disappointing.
00:30
Anyway, it got me thinking, what would
00:32
a fantasy football team based on golf handicaps look like?
00:36
(Man) Huh?
00:37
Going by position, you'd probably pick Larry Fitzgerald,
00:40
Mark Ingram, Patrick Peterson, Josh Scobee, and Tony Romo.
00:45
Never mind, don't take Tony Romo.
00:48
In fact, take anyone except Tony Romo.
00:51
After my first pick of Brown, I went with Seattle
00:54
quarterback Russell Wilson, because man crush.
00:59
He also happens to be friends with AB.
01:01
That's good for team chemistry.
01:03
And my kicker, Mason Crosby, happens to be a four handicap.
01:07
Then again, that's probably about average for kickers.
01:09
Those guys don't exactly take a beating in practice.
01:12
Back to Brown, there's no evidence
01:14
that he actually plays golf.
01:16
Then again, there's no evidence that I'm a fantasy jinx,
01:19
but when he goes down with a season ending injury
01:21
in week three, you'll know why.
01:23
Good luck everyone, and be careful out there Antonio.
