Former Vol Arian Foster honored


The shortest verse in the Tennessee Footballball Bible: “Foster Fumbled”

Former Vol Arian Foster receives pair of honors from football writers. Texans’ breakout star voted first-team RB for All-NFL Team, named most improved player in league. ProFootballWeekly.com – Diligence propelled Texans’ Foster to breakout season

The question is: Why is Foster able to maintain control of the ball now? Is it because fumbling costs him money in the NFL? I simply have no other logical explanation..

Urban Dictionary: fostering

1. Fostering 26 up, 6 down

A condition in which a person has trouble either catching, or maintaining possession of an item. Usually refers to a pigskin, football or the “rock” but can be applied to dropping Momma’s fine china on Thanksgiving Day or dropping a condom behind the headboard during application prior to coitus.

Stems from the word “Fumble” in football, in which a player loses possession of the football. Almost always occurs during moments of acute stress specifically when the desired end-state of a situation is within the grasp of an individual but then victory slips through the fingers of the fostering individual resulting in disaster.

Fostering is not limited to sports:

1) Dude why did you just foster the christmas turkey on the floor? Now we gotta eat spam covered with brown sugar instead.

2)All he had to do was juke the Florida Safety and he would have had 6!!! But he lost his emotions and effing tossed the ball into the stands, fostering the game away.
Game over, Florida Tatters our windsock again…

About Capers Bar

I am retired Army officer. I used to fly helicopters and airplanes while I was in the Army. Nowadays, I do other things that are not so cool and sexy. I decided to write about my journey or whatever you want to call it towards running a half-marathon this fall. I have been running since 1983, I have run the Duke City full and half marathons. I don't run that fast anymore, I did win a 10K when I was 21, those days are mercifully past me. The fastest mile I have turned is a 5:05 during one of those Army physical fitness test 2 mile runs. The point I am making is that I am old, slow, and experienced runner. I named the blog after my running buddy, Bandit, an Australian Blue Heeler. He is my 3rd K-9 running buddy, the previous two dogs were black labs. I hope to write about some of my discussions that I have with Bandit in the future. I once owned, but since sold and a satirical and irreverent sports blog that was moderately successful. I was published in the left-wing national sports media by Sports Illustrated and ESPN. I am "stuck" in Alabama working for a military contractor. I am working so fricking hard to get back to Southeast New Mexico or West Texas. Fingers and toes crossed.
