There’s a popular Facebook post going around where you take your last text message or a recent status and add the words “And then the murders began,” just to see how these words make everything more interesting. I would hereby like to submit my version for review:
Tight end Aaron Hernandez played his college ball at the University of Florida from 2007 to 2009, capping his junior year by leading the Gators in receptions in their victorious BCS Championship game over Oklahoma and winning the John Mackey Award as the nation’s best tight end. He was drafted by the New England Patriots, where he played for three seasons, including in their losing Super Bowl XLVI campaign, and caught for nearly 2,000 yards and 18 touchdowns in total by the end of the 2012 season. And then the murders began.
(Okay, in fairness, he was implicated in some shootings prior to this point, but the shootings that directly brought about the untimely end of his career and life took place afterward. Some journalistic integrity on display here, for a change!)
And Mike M. is the big recipient today, raking down 83 points and jumping into second overall! Hernandez occupied a spot on Mike’s team for four years now (longer than he played for the Gators or the Pats, incidentally), and cashed out with the huge score today. The Holloway Division occupying the top two spots here in the early going! Well done, Holloway!
Replacement pick due by next Wednesday!
