So please, go read Bill Simmons' latest.
After all of Vanderjagt's problems with Manning over the years, I kept waiting for the postgame press conference when Vanderjagt pretended to be upset, answered a few questions, and then suddenly Bill Cowher's music started playing (with Cowher dressed as Sergeant Slaughter), followed by Vanderjagt breaking into a big smile, and then the two of them hugging as Jim Ross screamed "No! No! No! My God, no!" Then Vanderjagt would rip off his Colts jersey to reveal a Steelers jersey underneath. This would have been one of the five greatest moments in sports history. And you know what? There's still time.
Also read this classic from Sports Pickle:
“My comments were taken out of context,” he said. “You have to realize that we only have a set amount of time in front of the press, and they ask a lot of questions. Had I had more time, I would have blamed everyone: my receivers, backs, the defense, special teams, my coaches, ownership, the fans, everyone. But I only had time to get to my lineman, and I’m sorry for singling them out.”
It's the Least Wonderful Time of the Year...and it's started about a month before it usually has since the turn of the century. Fantastic. But I'll at least be making an effort to scrape together some entertainment here. So keep checking back.
