FFL: Team Vega vs. The Commish is the Toilet Bowl
It's the Week 6 Showdown No One Wants to See. (2014-15)
Bad Football Stinks.
What do you get when Team Vega plays The Commish? Simple, a combined 1-9 record. These two owners have played horribly all season, so we aren’t expecting an all-time football matchup. We wouldn’t be shocked if neither wins and the game ends in a tie. This personification of futility is this week’s Toilet Bowl. Vega vs. The Commish could also be the league’s version of the “Bay of Pigs.”
If you don’t get the reference, let’s clear it up. No, we aren’t talking about the CIA backed assassination attempt of Cuban dictator Fidel Castro in 1961. ESPN’s NFL Primetime used the historical event to describe the Tampa Bay Buccaneers playing the Green Bay Packers throughout the 80s.
Chris Berman and the late Pete Axthelm coined the phrase “the Bay of Pigs” because Tampa and Green Bay were awful before players like Warren Sapp, Derrick Brooks, Brett Favre, and Antonio Freeman were winning Super Bowls. The games were full of turnovers, led by horrible quarterbacks, and bad plays.
What Will Happen?
FTS would prefer to forget that Team Vega and the Commish were facing each other. But out of pity and some laughs, we’ve assigned our intern Maya Buttreeks, to cover the Toilet Bowl. It’s a shitty assignment, but somebody had to do it. Stay tuned to FTS for her reports.
