I felt like this was the appropriate area to post this thread since it deals with fantasy football. Here's the story:


Three million people competed at fantasy football on ESPN.com this year. One man managed to rise above all of them, and he did it despite not having a computer. Or a place to live.

Obviously, Nathan Harrington, 33, of Salem, Mass., knows something I don't. Harrington ended up homeless after needing back surgery, going on medical leave from his job, and being forced to leave his home because it was condemned.

And still, he was better than over 3 million people at fantasy football.

He used computers at his father's nursing home, his mother's house, and the library. He knocked on neighbors' doors and asked if he could use their computers.

For his unbelievable performance, Harrington won a $3,500 Best Buy gift card, which he's selling to his mother for $2,500 cash.

I was hoping the guy would be able to win some cash or something and get back on his feet, instead he got ripped off by his own mother. :wadepalm:

Talk about kicking a man when he's down. I've heard of "mother **ckers" before...but this is the first time I've heard of a " **cker mother!" :headhurts: Damn if you can't trust your own MAMA...something is SERIOUSLY wrong with your LIFE!
