‘Captain Andrew Luck’ Twitter Account Posts Emotional Farewell Following QB’s Retirement

The day has come for a battle-hardened soldier to lay down his arms. For four years, football fans have found themselves amused time and again by the “Capt. Andrew Luck” Twitter account, a running Civil War-themed narration of the Indianapolis Colts quarterback’s career. Written as a series of letters to his mother straight from the killing fields, the feed gradually became a true staple of NFL Twitter.

Now, with Luck shockingly revealing his intentions to retire from football, the Captain had to respond in kind.

What is this feeling? This sinking, burdensome feeling in my chest? I don’t like it.

War is hell, folks. Football injuries are of no comparison, but enough is still enough. A history of nagging injuries just became too much for Luck, who said after Saturday’s preseason game that football just stopped bringing him joy as a result.

In the meantime, his fellow warriors have extended words of support and gratitude.

At ease, solider. You’ve more than earned the right to go home at long last.
