The presser as purgatory

If you’re looking for a benchmark against which to judge whether a person asking a question at a head coach’s presser is so full of himself that it reveals more about the questioner than the coach (and not in a good way), might I humbly suggest your search is over?

I’m not a Sark fan, but you can almost see the moment when he thinks “what the fuck?”.

    Ouch. This is the human equivalent of marking your spot so the other dogs know you’ve been there.

    When dude went all “this is not my opinion, but fact” in his 50 second oratory, you would have hoped that coach replied…”it’s fact, not my opinion, there exists video of that pole dancing monkey at your birthday party last year”…next question…

      You pointed out how this self described genius really isn’t. Any statement regarding quality of coaches is by definition an opinion and not a fact.

    Lol, guy sure used a lot of words to ask “existentially, where is the program at right now?”.

    Was he asking a coach a question or a pulitzer prize winner?

    It’s not closed captioned so I have no idea what Action News Reporter was on about. He sounds like Charlie Brown’s teacher to me.

    I fell asleep midway through his oratory. Anyone care to tell me the ending so I don’t have to endure that again?

    You guys are being too hard on the reporter. His question really makes you think. How would one unfold an onion?

    Speaking of purgatory, have you listened to Jimbo Fisher? I believe he is more manic behind the mic then Ron Zook was.

    I am sure Sark was thinking, “I ain’t being payed enough for this shit”.


  16. What an absolute blowhard! I’m curious how long he practiced that particular oratory for his moment in the spotlight. He pretended to ask a question just so he could spend a little time trying to be profound, when a simple question would be sufficient.

    God darnit, Mr. Lamarr, you use your tongue prettier than a twenty dollar whore.

    I think he was ready for a drink by the end of that question.


  19. Never let a reporter from The Economist ask a question at a sports presser.


  20. One of the Twitter replies to that clip called that “question foreplay”.
