A Dallas man who came in dead last in his fantasy football league, suffered one final humiliation after having to cover himself in peanut butter and run through a dog park.
Steven Shrout, 25, is ruing the day he decided to try his hand at fantasy football with his buddies in Dallas. He had never played before and his last place showing is proof of the pudding, Barstool Sports reported.
It wasn’t bad enough he came in last, but he also had to satisfy one more thing to get past his humiliating loss.
Shrout and his pals broke out the peanut butter and the video camera and headed to Deep Ellum dog park in Dallas.
“It was my first year, and I didn’t do any kind of studying at first. I just kind of jumped in,” Shrout said.
Shrout selected LeVeon Bell as his first pick, who was expected to play with the Pittsburgh Steelers this previous season but ended up sitting out because he and the team couldn’t come to an agreement on a new contract. Bell has been a top player in fantasy in previous seasons, and many fantasy football owners felt the agony of his decision to sit out the season after wasting a pick on him in the first round of their drafts. However, Shrout doesn’t have too much room to talk because he auto-drafted after his first pick.
“I ended up being dead last,” Shrout lamented.
So, it was off to the dog park:
Maybe this will all teach Shrout to take his fantasy football picking a bit more seriously next time?
