A sad day for Flutie fans

Doug Flutie announced his retirement from professional football. The Canadian Football League—where Flutie was the Most Outstanding Player six times— has a decent summary here.

Watching Flutie play was one of the most joyous experiences a football fan could have. We kept our season tickets with the Argonauts just to see number 2—optimistically listed at 5 feet and 10 inches of height—pick apart opposing defences. Even when he was a Stampeder I was a fan.

I ceased being a fan of the Buffalo Bills when they treated him so badly—and illogically.

Retirement is inevitable for a professional athlete, and Flutie has had a good run, and I wish him the very best.

Flutie! Flutie! Flutie!

It's a shame he was not allowed to shine as much as his will to win and talent deserved.
