“Ma, it’s that guy who says he’s the quarterback from Miami on the phone again!”

For some reason, I laughed my ass off reading this:

For the Miami football season-ticket holders still wondering about Tuesday-night phone calls: Yes, that was really Jacory Harris.

The Hurricanes’ starting quarterback and other teammates called season-ticket holders to thank them for their support and also to invite them to next Saturday’s Canes Fest event.

The reactions they got from fans ranged from disbelief to dismissal.

Harris, speaking at the Edgerrin James Room on the UM campus Wednesday, said two or three fans nearly hung up and then quizzed him to see if he was really the Hurricanes’ signal-caller.

‘[One fan] asked me, `How many players from Northwestern [High] went to the University of Miami?’ ” Harris said. ‘I was like, `Eight.’ And he was like, ‘Oh, I like how fast you answered that. It might be you.’ ”

So much for being considerate to the fan base in tough times.  I guess they were waiting for Harris to start making his sales pitch for time shares.

All of which reminds of my favorite moment on Seinfeld:
