The Fibbing Fin: Chad Pennington Mercifully Euthanized by Trainers

31 Mar

After his seventeenth major injury in as many weeks, trainers made the difficult decision to put quarterback Chad Pennington to sleep Thursday afternoon, in the comfort of his hay-lined Boca Raton stable.

There had been talk of putting the oft injured signal caller out to stud in Eastern Kentucky, but the latest setback, a torn knee ligament, was the last straw.

“There’s a point where he becomes a danger to himself,” Head Trainer Vinny Fantangelo explained, tears streaming down his face. “He was laying there on the track, already talking about a comeback from this comeback from the last comeback.”

Fantangelo shook his head, looked to the heavens. “Now he’s throwing quick slants to Jesus.”
