See, I told you this trade was the right move. By all accounts this girl seems pretty smart. You don't just wear glasses and show up to school dressed like an 85 year grandmother in her Sunday best unless you are intelligent. That's all she's got? "He is a really good player"? Open your eyes sweetheart, really good players get moved every year. You just not going to acknowledge the constant injuries and the dropped passes? Ever heard of this thing called a salary cap? Probably won't find any information about that in your math book. No one ever said that roster moves were based on popular opinion. Let me clear this up for you, Mickey Loomis does not give a fuck what you think. With that said, every time I acknowledge that Jimmy Graham is going to Seattle, of all places, I want to throw on an ugly dress, go lay in bed, and suck my thumb until all the sad goes away.
Oh, and look who it is now. Hey Drew, YOU'RE NOT HELPING!!!
I actually have to sympathize with all parties involved here. The little girl and her mother, Drew and his son. Finding out your favorite player got moved as a kid is like finding out a loved one passed away. What do you think sucks more for Drew Brees, losing his top red zone target or explaining to his kid that Uncle Jimmy won't be coming around anymore? He would probably rather tell him where babies come from, or tell him his favorite show got canceled, or that they are putting down the family dog. As a child you just have that wide eyed optimism that sports are all about winning and the world is one great big place where everyone loves each other and financial disputes don't exist. How does Drew even approach this? "But why Daddy?". "Because son, our defense is softer than your teddy bear's ass". Generally speaking I think I took player transactions I disapproved with harder than getting dumped. Finding out Claude Lemieux was no longer a Devil was worse than finding out there was no Santa Clause. Pretty sure I smoked my first cigarette when Kenyon Martin got traded from the Nets in 2004, and I wasn't even a little kid anymore. Thank God for 'adulthood', booze, and it's ability to fix all the bad in the world. Because make no mistake, Jimmy Graham in a jersey that is straight out of an EDM concert is all sorts of wrong.
Live look at Who Dat Nation...
P.S. Got to respect "wherever Jimmy Graham goes is where I go". I think that empty threat has been said 1,000 times and it hasn't been genuine once. Listen little lady, trust me on this, you don't want to go to Seattle. You think the high suicide rate is a coincidence. Seattle in the winter is the closest thing to the apocalypse. Spend an entire season that isn't summer in Seattle and I am pretty sure you will forget how to smile halfway through. I would be surprised if you could find one person that lives year round in Seattle that still believes in God.
