Is it Darren McFadden’s career? Love the guy, I’m an Arkansas alumni.

But he didn’t pan out in the NFL.

“...white substance unknown to players...”

Chicago Cubs have the same problem: 3rd base line to home plate for a game-winning run. LOL. Only 103yrs without winning a World Series. That’s a *drought*.
