A Super Bowl Trip

“Ok. Today is the day. Today is the day that I get to carry the Lombardi Trophy into Cowboys Stadium. All the media will be watching. I have three of my friends setting their TiVo’s. I just got my nicest suit dry cleaned. I’m looking very sharp. White gloves? Check. Confidence? Check. Lombardi Trophy? DOUBLE CHECK! Let’s do this. I have to be sure to take it slow. I don’t want to sweat or appear nervous. I want to put one foot in front of the other. Remember don’t give this minimal effort like everyone involved with the Pro Bowl does every year. Don’t carry it like a loaf of bread like Leon Lett. And don’t eat it like a loaf of bread like Rex Ryan. Just carry the trophy with two hands and be sure to take exteme caution when handing it off. And whatever I do, no matter what, I have to make sure not to trip while carrying the Lombardi Trophy.”

“Well. There’s always next year.”


Austin hosts a country music morning radio show in Chicago after nearly a decade in sports talk radio (The Jim Rome Show, Steve Gorman SPORTS!) Colin Cowherd and Smash Mouth follow him on Twitter (which he apparently thought was important enough to share here). He also wears pants everyday.
