The Sports Section’s Official Favorite Athlete Had the Worst Day Ever

John Skelton #19 of the Arizona Cardinals throws a pass against the Seattle Seahawks at CenturyLink Field on December 9, 2012 in Seattle, Washington.

Today, we weep for John Skelton, the Sports Section's Official Favorite Athlete. We thought we were sad when Skelton got benched, but no sorrow compares to that of a 74-yard, four-interception performance (he almost threw for more interception yards than passing yards) in a 52 58-0 Arizona loss to the Seahawks. Good grief.
