Arian Foster is better than you because he’s friends with a unicorn

How many unicorns did you hang out with this week?

THE LIFE OF an NFL star seems like a pretty cushy number. Sit around tweeting about your workouts, cash a few cheques — and if you’re Houston Texans running back Arian Foster, go hang out with a unicorn.

Yup, you read that correctly.

Foster is the cover star of the 2012 fantasy football issue of ESPN: The Magazine and they’ve gone all out for the photoshoot, bringing in the mythical beast for a few snaps.

The magazine’s tagline? “Just because it’s fantasy doesn’t mean it’s not real.”

So the next time you’re wondering about what you did with your day, ask yourself – how many unicorns did I meet today?
