I'm a little rat-tat-tattled rn. I was writing about the C's gross loss that I didn't watch last night when I saw some news on twitter that I took as fact, like the gullible, trustworthy guy I am.
I even told the fellas in the league chat because, I mean, this is crazy news. Talk about a comeback! Only one problem...
Now it's fucking obvious. I should've known something was up when the tweet had like 26 likes, but I thought I was just quick to the story! Plus, if there's one team who's gonna sign a running back that hasn't played in six years, it's the New York J! E! T! S! Jets! Jets! Jets!
I should've fucking known. How did I not catch @Wardyyy96? Both hands up; that's on me. I was in blog mode, and tryna get a story out quickly. I feel like one of the morons who believed schools put out litter boxes for students who identify as cats. At least my mistake in judgment was coming from a good place. I was gonna write about how fucking awesome it is that Eddie Lacy worked his way back to the NFL. I was legitimately excited; I love stories like that. Unfortunately, this was not one of those.
People may forget that he was solid AF his first two years in the league. It's cliche af but the shit about running backs being replaceable and a dime a dozen is so true. Lacy went from 2nd team All-Pro in 2013 to out of the league by 2017. Wild. Oh well. At least he's still alive, and sometimes you need wake-up calls like this to remember, so are you. This is why it's crucial to make sure sources are reliable. Even though this wasn't a fake verified twitter blue account, that shit is so fucking stupid too. It completely delegitimizes the website and causes mistakes like this (even though this wasn't even a fake verified account).
