Bill Parcells would prefer you not vomit on his time
I have this recurring nightmare in which I am in my 70s, quietly enjoying retirement at a cottage in the Adirondacks, when Glauber calls, bummed out about having to chase a report that Bill Parcells is angling to leave his position as head coach of the Los Angeles Jaguars to accept an offer to be the general manager of the Los Angeles Chargers.
I listen sympathetically, then laugh.
Anyway, Parcells is on HBO's "Real Sports" at 10 o'clock tonight.
Click below for a snippet of Andrea Kremer's chat with Mr. Tuna that HBO sent, anticipating correctly that I would be too lazy on a Tuesday morning to watch the entire review DVD I received.During the interview Kremer asked Parcells about aspects of his reputation that are untrue.
Parcells: That theres no compassion. Thats a big misconception. That theres no compassion.
Kremer: Youre also the guy who had a player one time throw up on the field and you turned to him during practice and said: (SOUND ON TAPE from the mid-90s of Parcells complaining on the New England sideline during practice: Tell him to throw up on his own time!)
Parcells: You know that was Matt Bahr.
Kremer: So when you say
Parcells: Matts my favorite kicker.
Kremer: Where does it come from? It comes from you. Its almost like there are two different Bill Parcells.
Parcells: All he has to do is kick. You can throw up and kick. You dont have to play.
