Have you ever come across a person that is so unique, so creative, that it just makes you mad? Like, it’s unfair for one person to be able to come up with so many amazing ideas? Well, to me that person is SB Nation writer Jon Bois.
Around these parts, Bois is probably best known as the creator of Breaking Madden, in which he came up with increasingly absurd ways to abuse digital football players. (I can’t figure out how to hyperlink text using the mobile site, so here’s the link: https://www.sbnation.com/breaking-madden )
He has just released the first chapter in his newest project, 17776: a story about the future of American football ( https://www.sbnation.com/a/17776-football ). I’m not exaggerating when I say this is one of the most jarring, original science fiction stories I have ever come across.
If you aren’t a fan of American football, or science fiction, or 80s jazz, or MS Paint, do yourself a favor: get over it. Go read this anyway.
