"Dear NFL Teams ...
"My client, Bryant McKinnie, formerly 330 pounds and of the Minnesota Vikings, is now a free agent looking for a football team to play for during the 2011 NFL campaign. While he was only recently released by the Minnesota Vikings for what they wrongly claim were health concerns (400 pounds is nothing! I drink 400 pounds of protein shakes a day!), I can assure you my client is in the best of health of his entire life and is willing to work ... with a smile! ... (effort negotiable) for your franchise this season. With some exceptions.
"Bryan McKinnie and I have agreed that he would be willing to set aside his pride and accept a meager $2,500,000 base salary for a one-year contract, with heavy incentives. Naturally, we have to ensure incentive rewards for McKinnie as someone of his talent and girth is clearly being taken advantage of in such a fine deal. A mere $2,500,000? That is like randomly going to SubWay and finding out your favorite sandwich has been chosen as the daily Five Dollar Footlong deal. Amazing! AND it is two-for-ones! SubWay: Eat Fresh!
"So for one year and an insulting $2,500,000 guaranteed contract, here is what your team will receive:
- An experienced NFL left tackle who never gave up a sack
( in his college career).
- A "bigger-than-life" personality
(who may throw sex boat scandals on nearby water properties).
- A Pro Bowl left tackle
(who was wrongly voted in to the Pro Bowl and then never competed because he spent too much time partying).
- An experienced NFL player who understands this is all a business move
(to the next step of his music career).
- An additional $500,000 for every sack credited to him for your mistake of not supporting him with a smarter quarterback to throw the ball away
- An additional $250,000 for every play you do not provide a tight end to chip the defensive end in a supporting role
- An additional $100,000 every game he puts on your uniform, whether he starts of not, which really is just ... $1,600,000 of additional money we'll be taking anyway.
- Free food at his locker from his local catering location of choice, pre- and post-game, not to be shared by greedy, undeserving team mates.
"PS: Please don't send this to the Vikings."
*Clicks "Send All," Vikings receive email, alert teams, McKinnie goes unsigned.*
In case you are a ratard, no, Drew Rosenhaus did not actually say all of this.
oh and I will be emailing you something hilarious that seems to be a trend this year with a lot of Viking players...stay tuned LOL
Hey PJD did you get my email I sent to you the other day with the requested questionnaire for fantasy football??
Really though, this is great. Can't go wrong with Strikethroughs... gets me every time.
FatKinnie is such a pile.
"In case you are a ratard, no, Drew Rosenhaus did not actually say all of this."
Two questions about this statement:
(1) If the 'haus didn't say "all of this," what did he say?
(2) What is a ratard? Is that like a really mentally challenged rodent?
@CollegeWolf It's even better on the admin side because the strikethrough is a red color. Makes it look like a CLEAR mistake.
@CollegeWolf I know eh.... crazyness.
@PJD Hahahahaha, I know!
(P.S. Yes, I am easy to please.)
@MikeFromWinnipeg Hmmm.... I don't really remember that being used in "The Hangover." But then again, I think that movie is vastly overrated, so I generally choose to forget most things about it.
