From this day forward, every person who comes in last place in their fantasy sports league should have to create an embarrassing calendar of him or herself. It’s a phenomenal idea, though I’m not sure anyone could pull it off as well as Henry Stern here did.
A Deadspin reader recently shared his fantasy football league’s hilarious punishment for the last place owner, and I can’t stop laughing.
Henry, who missed the playoffs and finished in last, had to create a calendar of himself in compromising and embarrassing positions. This was part of an agreed-upon punishment for the last-place owner in the league. Stern told the New York Daily News all his friends who compete in the league agreed upon the punishment because they wanted a consequence so owners missing the playoffs would have incentive to continue trying.
The first year they began doing the punishments, the last-place owner had to get a tattoo. The second year they did it the last-place guy had to perform standup comedy. Last year the punishment was posing for a “;Titanic’-style, full-frontal nude portrait,” according to Stern.
The nude portrait appeared on the cover of the calendar, which saw Stern in many great poses.
The Prince Fielder Body Issue imitation that you see above was probably the best, though there are plenty more on Stern’s Instagram page.
