Fantasy football league losers everywhere feel your pain, Lee Sanderlin.

Sanderlin, who is a writer for the Clarion Ledger, came in last place in his fantasy football league and decided to live tweet his punishment of spending 24 hours in a Waffle House in Brandon, Mississippi.

The catch is he can shave an hour off his time for every waffle he eats.

The result was an amusing Twitter thread with gems that include "The staff does not believe me that I'll be here that long... little do they know" and "I am already in immense discomfort. Please, somebody, launch me into the sun."

I got some books, some magazines and some podcasts. And two waffles to start.

2 down. That means two hours down. 21.37 hours left roughly. Already my stomach is rumbling. Gonna be a long one. <br><br>The staff does not believe me that I’ll be here that long... little do they know

Four waffles down. Been here for 1.5 hours, so that means I have 18.5 to go. I am already in immense discomfort. Please, somebody, launch me into the sun pic.twitter.com/LyyZObcmQ3

At least two children pumped him up by choosing "Eye of the Tiger" as background music:

Sanderlin also earned some supporters along the way:

As Sanderlin battles through his 24 hours and waffle experience, don't be surprised if fantasy football managers are taking notes for their own league punishments.
