By now you know, the XFL suspended operations over the weekend. According to ESPN Vince McMahon had this to say; "Given the uncertainty of the current environment, the XFL has suspended operations and is evaluating next steps."

Another staffer said; "It's done,It's not coming back." In a world starved for professional sports this is a bad thing and many people seemed genuinely sad about the news over the weekend so I thought it was only proper to countdown the XFL's most memorable moments:

The time I said: "I give it six months."

Remember that? Remember when I said that?

The time I told my brother in-law Bryan that they can throw two forward passes

I was at my brother in-laws house and an XFL game was on in the living room. I said, "you know what I heard? They're allowed two forward passes in one play." He responded; "Is that true?," to which I responded, "I dunno, that's just what I heard." I never really got to the bottom of that, huh.

The time I said, "The team names are dumb and the uniforms are ugly."

Basically anything short of breaking copyright laws and replicating the NFL uniforms exactly is just not good enough for me.

Listen, I'd purposely break my own femur in two places right now to watch a football game of any kind and that includes an XFL game. That's the ironic part, I'd most certainly watch the XFL under these COVID-19 circumstances and it's the disease that brought the league down. It was way more popular than I ever imagined and it sucks that so many more people are going to lose their jobs so I am sorry for those folks. The good news is that Vince McMahon is not afraid to have the same bad idea over and over again so maybe a third try is in our future.
