If this sidebar blog put together its own All-NFL team, Arian Foster would be its starting running back. After he single-handedly solved the NFL lockout while chilling at Chick-fil-A, he can pretty much do no wrong. Sunday, ESPN's Colin Cowherd charged into Foster's domain -- Twitter -- clearly unaware of what he was getting into.
It all started when the recently injured Foster took his fantasy football-obsessed followers to church, leading Cowherd to ... OK, here's the entire exchange:
4 those sincerely concerned, I'm doing ok & plan 2 B back by opening day. 4 those worried abt your fantasy team, u ppl are sick
Hey Arian Foster---
'We really do care about you as a human too. Um,now about that hammy?
Did you want to be a critic as a child? Or did your dreams die with your humility?
The best thing about Foster's overwhelming dismissal is how unrelated it is to Cowherd's zing. It's like Foster has been raring for a reason to have Cowherd sit down and think about what he's done. It's for your own good, really.
Namaste, and #TeamArian.
