Throwing in the Towel

Now in the NFL, there is “bad,” and then there is “walk out on your team at halftime bad.”

Unfortunately for the Buffalo Bills, they’re in the latter category.

There’s been a lot of fuss after Bills Cornerback Vontae Davis left after the first half of his team’s 31-20 defeat at the hands of the San Diego (whoops, I meant Los Angeles) Chargers.

I myself was tempted to jump on the Davis-quit-on-the-Bills-so-he’s-a-bum bandwagon, but I thought better of it.

For one thing, I’ve never played in the NFL (I did, however, rush for three TDs in Madden one time), so I can only imagine how grueling that can be.

Also…he was playing for the Bills, so I can understand the temptation to just say “Bye, Felicia.”

Sometimes if a situation is bad enough, you just have to skedaddle.

Like when you have a boss who tells you he “wouldn’t hire you to shovel shit, and that’s a pretty easy job to do.” Despite the fact that you busted your tush for three years (at one point even going without your anxiety meds for two straight weeks because you didn’t have time to go to the doctor to get your prescription refilled) for that Douche Bigalow.

Not that I know anything about that.

Or when you work at a “multi-level marketing” firm, with no benefits or base salary, which turns out to be a pyramid scheme involving you being a door-to-door salesman (or woman!).

Or when there’s a hurricane headed your way, ready to drop two feet of rain and blow over a butt-load of power lines, and you live in a single-wide trailer (sorry, I meant mobile home, and nothing against single-wides, but we’re talking about a hurricane here).

Or when your friend is beating you in Madden by 30 points with 1:30 to go in the 4th quarter (especially if he’s paying attention so you can’t just disconnect his controller).

Or when the best player on your dodgeball team thinks he’s a pirate (even if he is more of a pirate than you’ll ever be).

Okay, that’s not the best example.

I’m just saying sometimes you just have to turn the Xbox off and get out of Dodge.
