Lady in red really a loser at fantasy ball
Adam Molzahn is happy that he is a loser.
With a 4-9-1 record, Molzahn lost his 12-team Fantasy Football League this fall.
As punishment for his last-place finish, Molzahn stood in front of Hooters, 2880 North Ave., for one hour Sunday while wearing a dress.
The men in the Gridiron fantasy league decided three years ago that the person who lost the regular season title had to wear a dress for one hour on a high-traffic street during one of the busiest shopping days of the year — the Sunday before Christmas.
Turns out, the joke wasn’t on Molzahn.
“He does stuff like this all the time,” said Shauna Molzahn, Adam’s wife.
Adam Molzahn isn’t easily embarrassed. In fact, he has dressed up as a woman before during bachelor parties. It’s good for a few laughs, mostly on Molzahn’s end, he said.
There were plenty of laughs Sunday.
While the nearly 25 family and friends who showed up to heckle the Grand Junction man dined and watched football inside Hooters, Molzahn staged a fashion show.
He wore a black wig with a fake flower. He also had on silk stockings, a red and black dress and a pair of sparkly black shoes.
“My wife did my makeup,” Molzahn said.
Molzahn didn’t know he would be standing in front of Hooters until several weeks ago, when the men in the Gridiron league made the decision that North Avenue would be busy enough to embarrass the loser of the league.
“When I found out we were going to Hooters, I tried to lose on purpose,” Molzahn said.
Not so, the other men in Molzahn’s league said. In reality, Molzahn was on his way to last place weeks ago when he traded three players, including Tennessee Titans running back, Chris Johnson for, among other players, Cincinnati Bengals running back Cedric Benson.
“Well, it wasn’t bad at the time,” said Jared Molzahn, Adam’s brother and the benefactor of the trade.
Jared wound up winning the league.
Now, the men of the Gridiron league will look forward to their Fantasy Football playoffs. Technically, Molzahn can still play, but he can’t win the playoff title.
“I’m in the Toilet Bowl,” Molzahn said, while waving his “I’m a Loser” sign. “I’m going to win that.”
