In what is easily my favorite story of the day, former UK quarterback Jared Lorenzen has resigned as general manager of the Ultimate Indoor Football League’s Northern Kentucky River Monsters to become the team’s starting quarterback. Rarely are fans of any team given the chance to see a legend move from the front office to the field and the River Monsters’ faithful are being treated to the experience after only one week of existence. Before you get upset and express concerns about whether or not the Pillsbury Throwboy is ready for game action after serving as a suit, know that Lorenzen will take his time in getting back on the field. He plans to spend today preparing for the game tomorrow night, in which he will start. And you thought today was going to be a bad day.
Just remember, what doesn’t starve you, only makes you stronger.
