Plenty of guys who play intramurals think they could have played D-I or even gone pro if it wasn’t for some injury or shit coach they had in high school. This delusion is common among Greeks, because we believe we’re superior beings. We tell our high school tales of sacking Blake Bortles three times in a game, or about when we put up 30 in an AAU game against Tyreke Evans. The more time passes, the more outlandish the story gets.
But what would happen if we actually got a shot at a certified stud of a professional athlete? Well, some beer league hockey players got that exact opportunity.
