Have you ever had the kind of day where everything goes wrong, you mess something up, your boss yells at you and you wish you had just decided not to get out of bed that morning?
Athletes have those moments, too. For them, though, it's worse because most of the world ends up talking about their one bad day at work for weeks on end.
Throwing an interception is bad, but you can rebound from it. Throwing five interceptions in one day—or seven(!)—makes you sad to even contemplate. So imagine what it was like for the guys who actually did that.
Or the guys who had a passer rating of 0.0 in a game. Or the guys who triple-bogeyed the last hole of a major to squander a lead.
Yup. Should've called in sick those days.
