Jacksonville Florida has run out of medication

First things first. Your reverse fantasy football HQ results from week 12 saw me beat the adversary with a brutal (tender) combination of Jason Campbell and the Washington Racists Redskins defense. I didn’t see the game, but I’ve heard at least one report claiming that Jason Campbell gave himself a concussion as a result of getting hit in the head by one of his misfired balls. As to the adversary, I can’t confirm at this point, but he’s either dead or just utterly committed to sticking with Jacksonville on both sides of the ball until the wheels fall off (Of course I hope it’s the latter). Speaking of Jacksonville.

You know I currently reside in Florida. I’ve been to Jacksonville several times. I like Jacksonville. It’s a good looking city and there’s actually quite a bit to do. Plus Amelia Island is right next door. However the residents of Jacksonville have apparently descended into complete madness. I make none of this up:

The City of Jacksonville is organizing a tailgate party for this Thursday night. What follows are actual quotes from a Jacksonville news site.

  • Mayor Alvin Brown said, “Night games are always exciting for Jacksonville. We are a football city that’s always ready for a big game.”
  • “We can’t emphasize enough how important a packed stadium is to us. We have been very impressed with the support that the fans have showed us throughout the season,” said Coach Gus Bradley.
  • “Families are encouraged to bring the kids to the interactive Kids Zone, and anyone with a game ticket will have free access to the Bud Light Beer Garden. The Beer Garden will offer free beer tastings accompanied by games such as the Army / Navy Outdoor Shooting Gallery. More adventurous fans can ride a mechanical bull.” – The Jacksonville Daily Record.

So, let me get all this straight. 5,500 people apparently now counts as a packed stadium in a “football city”. Said “football city” would like me to bring my hypothetical children to an outdoor venue where I will drink copious amounts of Bud Light and engage in small arms fire. Oh and there’s a mechanical bull if that gets boring.

You know, that actually sounds a lot better than what I’m doing tonight. Ok Jacksonville, I’m a fan again – go Jags.

– J
