Trenton, NJ - After a particularly strenuous 5 minute shift for his team, forward Dmitri Pavlov raised his hand and called for a sub from an already exhausted bench signifying his full commitment to uselessly running around like a chicken with its head cut off until exhausted.
"I haven't really been running recently," stated Pavlov to The Nutmeg News. "Honestly, I haven't been doing any cardio. I know that people were depending on me, I know that we have a limited number of players any given week and I know that everyone paid good money for this but honestly, I'm tired from staying up all night to play Destiny 2."
Pavlov reportedly signed up for for The Bricklayers FC after assuring friend Dominic Hollings that he would be in shape for the season stating that he could, "run all game long, no problem."
Sources indicate that Pavlov only made it 5 minutes into the Fall season for The Bricklayers until he was asking for a substitution as the shallow bench gave each other glances to see who would replace him.
The Nutmeg News will have more on this as Pavlov jokes on the sideline about his poor diet and training schedule.
