The AFC Rookie Symposium is turning out to be a source of great amusement for me, from Audie Cole doing... something... to a pole last week, to Green Bay's rookies having their crippling fear of footballs revealed this week.

If you include the guy trying to hold that kid's hand, I count four players in this photo recoiling from the strangely levitating football in something approximating fear. There may be other, more reasonable explanations for the reactions in this photo, but I refuse to accept them. Football players. Grown men. Afraid of a football. That's my story. That's what I choose to believe.

Of course, the football is hovering in midair. And that is pretty darn freaky.

A dramatic representation, if you will:

Young Child: "Hey guys, you want to see something cool? Something real David Blaine freaky cool?"

Grown Men: "Hell yeah!"

Young Child: "Okay, okay. Gather around me. Now look at this football. Do you see the football?"

Grown Men: "Hell yeah!"

Young Child: "Okay. Just keep looking at the football."

/young child levitates football with mind.


That's the clean version, anyway.

What's your clean version? What do you see going on in this photo? The more strange, the more outlandish, the more hysterical, the more these grown men can be made to seem ridiculous, the better. Take a moment to head into the comments section to give us your version, and rec any that make you smile. Last week, TheBigLeburnski took home to the most recs.
