This year when Denver Broncos quarterback Jake Plummer learned he was being traded to the Tampa Bay Buccaneers -- by the way, both teams who sold out 'sissy' uniforms (Bucs' tangerine, Bronc's orange for 'tougher' charcoal/navy blue unis -- Jake said 'nah, I'm retiring instead.' With years of leg under him, it shocked many.
News came out today of Jake's new profession -- and one that the Failed Bands of Oklahoma heartedly promotes: handball.
Handball was brought to the United States from Irish immigrants. One, Phil Casey, built the first US handball court in 1882, and by the early 1900s south Brooklyn -- where the FBO offices are semi-permanently based -- became the HQ. Today, you say many handball courts around New York, and surprisingly they're usually in use.
Jake told the Denver Post that 'he got out [of the world's most successful sports league' because I wanted to play handball and I wanted to do other things.'
Handball is a game that involves slapping a ball with your hand against a free-standing wall.
Jake Plummer is formally adopted as the FBO Choice Athlete of 2007-2008.
