I find it hilarious. Its not a big deal though, people are like this everywhere with one thing or another.
I have no idea how he did this with a straight face.
I now love Wes Welker.

When all is said and done more is said than done.
This group of Jets from top to bottom is one of the least likable group of guys I can remember ever in sports. It would certainly take a lot for me to root for Belicheck and the Pats, but I think we found something that will.

Say what you want about Rex Ryan, but he has quickly put the Jets back in the public eye. There was rarely a mention of the Jets here in upstate NY before Ryan got the job. Now they are constantly in the news. Even in the NYC papers they didn't get any love before, not compared to the Giants. Today there's a 16-page special section in The Post, just for coverage of the Pats/Jets game Sunday. I hope the Pats beat them as badly as they did last month. I've sort of become a closet Patriots fan since moving here in 2006. All of their games are televised here and they are a really fun team to watch. And their fans don't annoy me the way Yankees, Giants and Red Sox fans do.
I've watched Welker's comments a few times this morning. It doesn't get any better than that. He must have had a list of foot references typed up beforehand, and knew exactly how he was going to use them. No way he did that on the fly. And never cracked even a hint of a smile or smirk. Once he got out of sight/sound of reporters and cameras I bet he busted a gut laughing so hard.
"I talked to an advance scout that told me if Joey Votto and Albert Pujols were on the same team he'd advise his team to do the unthinkable...pitch around Votto to get to Pujols." - Buster Olney, ESPN
See: Marv Albert.
So what is the headline tomorrow..."Foot in Mouth", with picture of Welker?
I actually like the Jets and Rex Ryan. They have a swagger that I can appreciate.
