Signs of normalcy, part one

Nothing says college football is back, baby, like Twitter losing its collective mind over Brian Kelly botching a famous John McKay joke about execution.  That makes him a man who lacks a sense of humor (like we didn’t know that), not history’s greatest monster.  (And for making me defend Kelly, thanks a lot, Twitter).

Now this, on the other hand, is funny.

David will be here all week, folks.  Try the veal!

    Twitter is a cesspool.

    Good game though.

      Who would? “Brian Kelly makes a funny” is a punchline to a joke somewhere, I expect, not anyone’s actual lived experience.

      (after another loss, McKay, the first Tampa Bay coach talking to a reporter)

      Reporter: Coach, what can you tell us about your team’s execution?

      McKay: I’m for it.

      John McKay former USC head coach left to go to the expansion Tampa Bay Buccaneers. They set the record for the most consecutive losses to start a franchise. He always had something for the media to quote. This incident occurred during the early days of the Bucs when they probably would have lost to a good college team.

      Tampa Bay Buccaneers head football coach John McKay (1923-2001) was asked by a reporter after a loss what he thought about the execution of the team’s offense. “I’m in favor of it (execution—ed.),” McKay replied. The joke quickly became a sports classic.

      Kelly tried to pull that off but between royally screwing it up and no sense of humor to begin with, the woke PC crowd pounced. I don’t think he will be doing standup when he retires.

    He really fudged that up. Came across as a real dick. And no current college kid (player) alive knows that quote. Frame meet reference. Pretty sure he had to apologize to the team AND their parents.

    Well, Brian was responsible for a student-manager’s death, so there’s that.
