Trolling the US military’s contract solicitations is always a fun diversion for readers with a taste for irony.
Take the US army’s solicitation yesterday (click here) for a NFL tour group to shake hands and sign autographs for the troops in Afghanistan.
The contract requires the vendor to deliver three active or recently retired NFL players, who must have played three seasons at any of the following “key” positions: quarterback, running back, kicker, defensive safety, defensive linebacker, or wide receiver.
NFL lineman, consider yourselves dissed. Even the kicker outranks you.
