Included in Vinny Cerrato’s unprompted attack on Jim Zorn yesterday was this bit:
“Lookit, when we started out, we’re 6-2 and [Zorn's] doing a good job. But then I think ego got into play and then he stopped listening to coaches, became a celebrity. That’s when Rush Limbaugh’s on the sideline, he had all these people on the sideline. Gimme a break.”
Wait, Jim Zorn had Rush Limbaugh on the sideline? I know Zorn Star used to ride bikes with Dubya, but I didn’t recall Limbaugh ever being at FedEx for a Skins game. A quick googling didn’t turn up anything either.
Thank goodness, then, for Steinz, who sent this link to Limbaugh’s site:
“Got back from Washington, DC, at 4:30 this morning, finally got into bed at five o’clock, went in for the Redskins-Steelers last night, and I want to thank the Redskins coach Jim Zorn and his wife, Joy. We were guests of theirs last night, got to go down on the field and chew the fat with Coach Zorn and watch the game from his box with his wife and some houseguest that he had in town. It was just a great night. We had to wait to leave last night. We waited in the suite for him to come up after his press conference after the game, but apparently it takes ages, it takes years to clear the parking lots at FedEx Field, 92,000 people in there, so we waited for about an hour-and-45 minutes after the game and headed to Baltimore Washington International, which is the closest airport to the Washington Redskins Stadium in Landover, Maryland, so we got home and rolled into bed at five o’clock, and here we are.”
Wow, that happened. And Vinny was actually right for once. Double wow.
Also, it really is too bad this went down before McNabb came to town.
