What we learned from Media day for that big football game on Sunday
So, there is a supposed big football game on Sunday? Wait, they play football in February? As a Vikings fan, a Sunday in February is about as real as Manti Te'o's girlfriend. Too soon? Too bad!
The week of "the big game", the media assembles and asks stupid questions about irrelevant things. Sometimes we learn a thing or two about a player or the teams involved, but mostly it is an opportunity for the NFL to charge suckers er, fans to come on in and watch the media circus.
Here is what we learned Tuesday.
Um, okay. I would somewhat agree. I think Moss is more versatile than Jerry Rice. After all, Moss also has experience as a water boy (squirting the ref), a food critic (catering fiasco) and a chip and dale dancer (mooning the Lambeau crowd). Jerry just has Dancing With the Stars. Moss doesn't look at numbers and says he had a down year statistically this year, and in Oakland, and as he put it "the year I retired" when he went through teams faster than Bryant McKinney at Old Country Buffet. Look, there is no doubt Moss has left his mark in the NFL. Let's just say he's the greatest receiver to ever play not named Jerry Rice.
Hey, this guy got to ask questions at Media day. Thanks for dressing up Nacho Libre!!! No megusta…
Speaking of Bryant McKinnie
There will be a Hallmark Channel movie someday about the career of Bryant McKinnie. The 6'8 beast just about ate his way out of the league. Big Mac spent the majority of the season in a backup role but is now in the starting lineup. Former Viking Matt Birk said of McKinnie "It's a tribute to his attitude and work ethic." No Matt, it's a tribute to being 6"8 and 354ish pounds.
How the….what the…This caped crusader actually asked 49ers Wide Receiver Michael Crabtree if he could be in the team picture. If Green Bay were playing and Captain Skid Mark asked that question I'd say absolutely!
Ray decided to not cry at media day. Must have forgotten his estrogen pills. What we do know is the "very much in tune with his emotion" linebacker denied, well refused to answer questions that he used deer antler spray as a performance enhancing drug. He did call the accusation "stupidity". Anyone who would spritz a couple of shots of deer antler spray under their tongue is stupid.
Can I get an amen?..oh yeah, and a tissue...stupid hormones.
Will someone tell this "media member" that Bill and Ted auditions for Genghis Khan closed nearly 25 years ago…His mom is proud of him I am sure. Way to show up for the free media meal pal.
