Leonard Fournette Has Had Quite The Interesting Birthday Week

Leonard Fournette Has Had Quite The Interesting Birthday Week

I don't know about your household, but in the DeAngelo homestead we had events called "Birthday Weeks" (a pretty straightforward concept). Any Sunday to Saturday that your name day fell upon, you'd have those seven days to take a few liberties: don't feel like doing the dishes? Vacuuming the steps? Let you brother who doesn't post nearly enough on this site take care of it. It's your birthday week. Don't worry about it. Your time will come when the table is turned onto you and you'll be the one shovel flinging the dog poop over your fence and into the surrounding nature.

This phenomenon known as birthday weeks is something that spawned my Testaverde Week on here, and while I won't burden you with seven straight days recent Steeler beater, Leonard Fournette, who did turn 23 today, this spry young whippersnapper has indeed had himself a birthday week of two extremes.

First, you beat the 13-3 Pittsburgh Steelers for the second time this season. and you individually score three touchdowns in your team's 45-point posting. Then, in some sort of ironic retribution, Steeler fans total his wheels in a fender-bender (no harm, no foul. “I’ve got to get a whole new car,” Fournette said. “But at least nobody got hurt.”) He then reportedly signed his busted Mercedes bumper to a helpful first responder.

The very highs of going to the AFC Championship game and the somewhat lows of getting your car totaled by fans of the team you just upset. What a wacky world. Fender benders, while more dangerous, can remind a football aficionado of short-yardage conversion situations - something them Steelers have to work on. Maybe the brass pelvic thrusting Haley out of town will help with such matters.

 "No, Todd, stop. I won't smell your burp breath."

"No, Todd, stop. I won't smell your burp breath."

Also, despite their chirping and them going up to Foxboro, I'm sticking with another Jags upset. Pressure Brady, shut down Gronk (easier said than done), and you just may have yourself a Super Bowl bid.
