A hospital security guard — who is also a fantasy football owner — chastised Seattle Seahawks wide receiver Braylon Edwards for not playing in last Sunday’s game against the Detroit Lions because of a swollen knee.

Edwards was at the hospital Monday to get an MRI. But apparently the security guard was more concerned about Edwards screwing up his fantasy team.

Check out Edwards’ tweets: 

Fantasy football participants are “owners” and “managers” of teams that play in competitive leagues. They gain “fantasy points” based on the statistics of real NFL players like Edwards.

Notice that the operative word is “fantasy” football.

Obviously the hospital security guard has a problem separating fantasy from reality.
