Andy Reid was on the radio this week and talked about his Tommy Bahama shirts: [Arrowhead Pride]
“You know what, over on the Plaza [in Kansas City] there’s a Tommy Bahama shop,” Reid told The Program’s Soren Petro on Monday. “There’s a lady over there who took care of me, the manager of the store over there. She heard the story about the Tommy Bahama shirts and she sent that one over to me without any fanfare or anything. I appreciated that.”
“Normally I wear that on the second day but I donned it on the first day. The other shirts I had, I had the red Tommy Bahama all lined up and ready to go before that one came over for the second day, so I wore that one the second day. The third day I went kind of plain, I went with the black Tommy Bahama.”
“Soren, if you and I keep this up we might get a deal with Tommy Bahama doggone it. We might get a discount card. I didn’t think about this but we’re giving them a pretty good plug right here.”
And for the money line: “You wear them and you can hide cheeseburgers underneath and no one will ever know.”
And the conjecture that the Eagles moved up to swipe his guy, Matt Barkley: [PFT]
“I know how rumors start and how people justify picks and all this other stuff, but I think if you look at our roster, we’ve got Akeem Jordan at middle linebacker; that’s the only player that we have there. So we needed a middle linebacker, we had a good one sitting right there and it fell that way and we were tickled pink to go get Nico and bring him on board. That rumor started and I heard it, and I had to laugh at it. That wasn’t even in the picture.”
Tickled pink? Christ, Andy– that’s a visual I didn’t need coming from your lips.
