1. There is this very strange thing on Twitter where you are never allowed to criticize or say a bad word about certain people. One such person is former NFL quarterback Ryan Fitzpatrick.
I’m going to risk my life online here by saying something negative about Ryan Fitzpatrick. Here it comes in: Ryan Fitzpatrick needs to lighten up.
Fitzpatrick, who is currently one of the big Amazon Prime Video characters, appeared before and after the game Dan Le Petard show On Tuesday, and ended up pretty embarrassed when Stugotz asked the handyman about a ridiculous old rumor.
After about 10 minutes of interesting interview, Stugotz asked this question:
“Ryan, there have been several reports in the last year, conceded that these reports came from callers to a radio station in Washington, D.C., that you cut yourself last year pre-season on a waterslide and I think, listen, you probably shouldn’t have been doing it before union season. NFL live if this rumor is really true, so I just want to know if it’s true or not. Is your career on a waterslide over?”
Well, there are two things here. Stogitz explained that he was just trying to do some hovering here and wasn’t actually asking the question in a serious way when he said the “reports” were actually communicators on a sports radio show. This was clearly an attempt to give Fitzpatrick a chance to enjoy something that was clearly absurd.
However, Fitzpatrick did not find the question amusing. Absolutely.
“No, I got hurt in a game,” Fitzpatrick said. “I think everyone saw it. I’m now part of the media. I think all of us, and you probably already know the answer to that question, I know it’s funny and lighthearted, but now you give the rumor a little more breath, but it’s ridiculous and illogical, so no, it never happened.”
No, the show wasn’t trying to give the same rumours. The show was giving Fitzpatrick a chance to make fun of how ridiculous the story of his getting hurt on a waterslide was.
Le Batard tried to smooth things over by asking Fitzpatrick how he attacks a waterslide when he participates: Does it slide on your stomach? on your back? Once again, Fitzpatrick wasn’t amused even one iota.
He replied, “We can move on to something else.”
Clearly, Fitzpatrick does not understand how the show works.
from there, batard show The crew did something that highlighted exactly why their show was so popular: Instead of going forward, they amplified the friction, mocked Stugots for asking him the question, yelling about “crossing the line,” and Dan yelled, “He just doesn’t — we hung on the waterway!”
Fitzpatrick remained uninterested and accused the show of asking the “gotcha” question.
It’s not a “gotcha” question. It’s a question to have fun with because it’s so weird.
Look at the way Tom Brady handled the ridiculous “stories” about leaving camp to participate The masked singer. As I wrote on Tuesday, Trina IdeasBrady spoke about this on his SiriusXM radio show on Monday and said, “I don’t know where they’re getting all this stuff from. They should be talking about something. It wasn’t me. I wasn’t a masked nor a singer. That wouldn’t really fit my profile. I’m good Basically at one thing, which is throwing passes. Other than that, I’m basically worthless.”
This is how you approach a silly question when you are interviewed.
Many people have high hopes for Fitzpatrick as a studio analyst for Amazon. Hope this isn’t on tense Thursday nights.
