VIDEO: Man Drafts Andrew Luck in Fantasy Football Full Day After He Retires From NFL
One of the more shocking things in recent memory to come out of the world of sports happened Saturday when Indianapolis Colts' franchise quarterback Andrew Luck announced his retirement from the NFL. Luck, who is 29 years old and seemingly in the prime of his career, decided to call it quits after dealing with injuries for the better part of the last four years.
The news became wall-to-wall coverage and seemingly everyone knew about it – apparently everyone except one guy.
On Sunday, one full day after the news of Luck's retirement broke, this guy decided to select the now-retired Luck with his 10th-round selection in his fantasy football draft. And instant calamity broke out in the draft room around the unsuspecting fantasy owner's selection.
There have been plenty of videos of people, including O.J. Simpson, showing angry reactions after selecting Luck earlier that Saturday, only to find out hours later that he was indeed retiring and they would have to hit the waiver wire to find a new starting quarterback.
However, this guy is the first we've seen make the grave mistake of drafting Luck a full day after the announcement. Consider this an important public service announcement to always be prepared for your fantasy football draft, or at least make sure the guy you pick is still in the NFL.
