The playoff games this weekend were a bit hit and miss, with the NFC providing little by way of thrills. The AFC, however, brought the big guns, and it all culminated in an exciting, intense showdown between the New England Patriots and the New York Jets. It only takes one look at the dejected state of Boston.com to figure out who won that matchup. Yes, New York prevailed, and for linebacker Bart Scott, the victory elicited some intense emotions. In the clip above, watch as Scott screams his way through an interview, ending on perhaps the most angrily optimistic note of all time. I’m not posting this video to brag. I just think it’s really funny.
We are in the thick of NFL playoffs, and with an epic Jets vs. Patriots showdown just around the corner, players from both teams are mouthing off. Getting the ball rolling was Antonio Cromartie of the Jets who accused Patriots QB Tom Brady of being an “asshole.” Why? He cited Tom’s questionable sportsmanship when he appeared to taunt the Jets’ defensive line after a late-game touchdown in a New England rout of New York. In response, Tom countered that he’s been called a lot worse (something I can attest to based on my own oft-colorful language). And so the epic rivalry has heated up even more. It all begs a question: is Tom Brady an asshole? We know he’s a great player (and yes, it kills me to see that the Betus Superbowl predictions have the Pats over the Jets by a wide, wide margin), but is he a jerk too? Or is this a case of anti-Patriots sentiment clouding the perception of a stellar human being?
What do you think?
Thanks to IndianJones for the heads up.
I love stupid athletes. In a city that has arguably some of the best public transportation in the world, Jets wide receiver / professional punk Braylon Edwards got himself drunk and arrested with a boozy .19 blood alcohol level. That’s more than twice the legal limit. No surprise here: Braylon found himself in jail. The real question is whether or not he’ll be thrown to the wolves like Plaxico Burress or Michael Vick. Not saying those two didn’t deserve hard time in the clink, but as long as the NFL is doling out suspensions, it would be nice to see a drunk driver get more than the Paris Hilton treatment.
Nevertheless, if it’s any consolation to Edwards, he can relish in the fact that he did beat the New England Patriots quite handily on Sunday, perhaps sending shockwaves through the world of football betting — or at least the emotional state of my dear Masshole friend IndianJones (who, incidentally, I beat in our fraternity Fantasy Football league. Much like the Jets did to the Pats, I too came from behind to DESTROY him).
Anyway, for those who want to read more about Edwards’ arrest, including the new developments that he was driving two fellow teammates (whether they also had Crazy beards is unclear), check out the full article at ESPN.
