Frerotte ‘Thought He Was a Linebacker’

frerotte-is-linebacker.jpgAs mentioned, I had the good fortune of panelizing with ex-Skins LB/pass rushing terror Ken Harvey on yesterday’s Washington Post Live. To his credit, he wasn’t outwardly freaked out at all when I broke out some of his old football cards during introductions.

Anyway, heading to break, Comcast SportsNet showed USC’s Desmond Reed doing a full flip into the endzone during the Rose Bowl. Off-air discussion ensued, leading to Clinton Portis’ three-quarter flip against Dallas and how easily Portis could’ve hurt himself, which would’ve been très embarrassant, on par and even in excess of Gus Frerotte’s infamous headbutt:

Me: “Ken, you were on that team with Frerotte, right?

Ken Harvey: “Yeah. See, Gus thought he was a linebacker.”

Me: “Did you think you were a quarterback?”

Ken Harvey: “No.”

Me: “Fans never stop talking about that headbutt. Do teammates let him live it down?”

(Ken Harvey grabs his cell phone.)

Ken Harvey: “Wanna ask him?”

Ken Harvey, ladies and gentlemen! Don’t forget to pick up your Frerotte Is Fr’Real t-shirts at the door!

D.C. sports fan and digital media guy that's been doing this since 2004. Once threw a football further than Chris Cooley.

    It would have been funnier had Marvcus Patton called him.

    It would’ve been funnier if he told you to ask Cong. Shuler his opinion.
