Stop saying “THE” before your college’s name for your NFL video introduction.
Let the pre-game laugh fest begin. Well, more like the pre-game head shaking fest…
Stop using the word “the” (pronounced “THEE” – emphasize the “EE” and pause a bit before saying where you went to college) before your college’s name for your short video introduction at the beginning of NFL games. Stop acting like the college you went to is that much better and more important than the college’s of the other players. Stop putting yourself above others. Stop making me shake my head every time you do this.
In case you aren’t sure what I’m talking about, here’s an example. Listen to Santonio Holmes introduce himself…
Go ahead, you can shake your head too. Done? Okay. Let’s move on.
This type of attitude and behavior should serve as a warning to teams that this person might start acting like a fool on and off the field and could hurt the team. In this case it held true – the Steelers let him go after the 2009 season due to run-ins with the law (let me know if I’m wrong below). That well-run organization doesn’t tolerate characters like that on their football team. I wouldn’t either. No one should.
One question Santonio (and countless others): What makes your college so much better than the other players’ colleges that you need to precede your college’s name with the word “the”?
Actually, one more question: Why do you feel the need to do this?
Just in case an NFL player that does this happens to be reading this post, please feel free to answer these questions below in the comments section so that we may better be able to understand how your brain works.
More importantly, stop being an overall idiot-jock-meat-head – like this guy.
