Former NFL Star Colin Kaepernick Not Picked By Neighborhood Touch Football Teams
It has been a rough few years for San Francisco quarterback, Colin Kaepernick. Ever since he started protesting the national anthem at NFL games, he hasn’t been able to find a team that will sign him. Even the Cleveland Browns, who will sign anyone with any temperament or background problems wouldn’t sign Colin. The former 49ers star even tried to grab a job with the upstart football league, the Alliance of American Football (AAF). But they refused.
Just when Kaepernick thought it couldn’t get any worse, it did. A reporter from Unverified Source caught up with Colin and chatted with him as he wandered the bridges and underpasses on the outskirts of his city.
“I was hanging out at the house. The neighborhood kids were home from school. I could see them gathering at the local park forming a touch football game. I walked down there. I took my 49ers helmet and jersey for good measure. They knew who I was. They started picking teams. There were 11 kids and I would be the 12th player. Six on six is a fun touch game. The two captains chose the other nine young people. I started to join the team with only five players. The captain told me, ‘No.’ I said, ‘You only have five to take on the other team’s six.’ He said, ‘I know. Sorry, bro. We just don’t need the distraction.’ It is bad enough being the last person picked in a neighborhood game. But to not be taken at all… Well, that is the worst.”
Kaepernick doesn’t know what he will do now. As he wanders the back alleys and lonely sidewalks, our reporter recommended he find some guys playing Madden Football or even join a fantasy football league. He stopped, looked at our guy and asked, “Are you offering me a spot in your fantasy league?” The reporter hung his head and responded, “Well… no… we only have four openings left. I’m just saying that maybe there is a league out there you could join.”
