The Onion released the first episode of their new satirical series called “Tough Season” which pokes fun at Fantasy Football and HBO’s Hard Knocks. The pilot episode focuses on fantasy manager Brad Blevins and stars Chicago Bears running back Matt Forte. It appears that Lenovo is sponsoring the shorts which is why Larry Fitzgerald, Andrew Luck, Mason Crosby and Alfred Morris will have cameos in later episodes. I think of this as a shorter version of The League and it is absolutely fantastic. I can’t wait for future episodes.
