A lousy player's football card: 2006 Topps Mark Bradley

The back of Mark Bradley's 2006 Topps card (#226) reads:

Bears coach Lovie Smith called Mark's game against the Lions on October 30, 2005, "his coming-out party." Unfortunately, it was also his going-down party, as the emerging rookie suffered a season-ending knee injury. Bradly had corralled five balls for 88 yards that day, solidifying his starting job. Fortunately, he is expected to be A-OK in 2006.

In my puerile revelries, a couple of interns are sitting around at Topps laughing about the time they got a story about a person "coming-out" and then having a "going-down party" published on the back of a football card.

Too juvenile? If forced double entendres aren't your cup of gin, you probably won't find my pictures of sports cards next to toys very enjoyable, either.

No, Mark Bradley: you're going down!
