I caused the AFL's failure

I know it was certain before, but now it's absolutely definite - I won't be playing in the AFL this year.

The Arena Football League announced Monday it is suspending operations
for the 2009 season.

For this reason, the Georgia Force is issuing refunds of the $75 tryout
fees to all who registered for open tryouts in 2008.

Those who paid with credit cards will be receiving a credit to their
account in the next 48 hours. Those who paid by check or cash will be
mailed a check in the next 7 days.

We thank you for your interest in the Georgia Force, and we look forward
to seeing you in 2010.

As you surely know from reading my book and website, I am a weirdness magnet. I caused yellow jackets to swarm and hospitalize a boy just by walking down some stairs. I caused PeTA protesters dressed as cows to shut down a steak restaurant, just by choosing to dine there. And I have surmised (and actually been directly told) that the AFL has shut down because I chose to train for two years to try to make it.

But hey, look at it this way, it didn't shut down last year, because I wasn't ready. Perhaps this is an indicator that I actually COULD have made it this year?

Oh well. I guess I'll go try to be a writer for Real Housewives of Atlanta, hopefully bringing about the end of that piece of shit.
