"Look what you made that f*cking blogger write! He said you couldn't possibly f*cking score today! And he's f*cking American!! What do they know about our game? I'd have jammed this print out up your @ss if it hadn't been posted just before kickoff when you were already in the tunnel. Now you'd better get back out there and prove him wrong or your proctologist will find my hair dryer in a very unpleasant place come your next physical!! Now get out there and score a god d@mn brace."Of course, to the naked ear that came out something like "kj;lnma; a alfdjam as asa;ldaf a asnasd aALS A ADF adlas alteq;ns fl;i!!!"

We'll remember to stop tempting the fantasy football gods with our writing in the future. (OK, we will in no way remember to stop tempting the fantasy football gods with our writing in the future but it seemed like the right thing to say there).
