Arizona Cardinals quarterback Kyler Murray is an avid chess player and is very good at it. However, in a chess tournament between many NFL players this weekend, Murray was not a participant.
When Murray ran across the announcement, he hoped to be able to get into the event.
Damn, it’s too late to get me in there?!

Former Cardinals legend Larry Fitzgerald is among those participating and perhaps had a hand in keeping Murray out.
Whether it was serious or in jest, Fitzgerald responded to Murray’s plea to get into the tournament.
I asked them not to let you in, so some other people can win at a few things in life. Lol

He tweeted that he asked that Murray not get invited “so some other people can win at a few things in life.”
It seems that someone other than Murray will be able to win something in life like a chess tournament for charity.
