Andrew Luck shocked the sports world on Saturday night when Adam Schefter of ESPN reported that the Indianapolis Colts quarterback was retiring from the NFL.
The most 2019 reaction to the news came from none other than O.J. Simpson.
Minutes after news of the retirement broke, Simpson posted a video to Twitter scolding Luck for the timing of the announcement.
“Andrew Luck, what did I do to you?” Simpson said. “You could have retired an hour and a half ago before I picked you in my fantasy picks. I mean, what did I do, baby?”

Needless to say, Twitter had some fun with this.
This is a bigger concern for Luck at the moment. https://t.co/H4XnrEvgwj
