We Don't Care To Recap a Craptastic Blue-White Game, So Here's a Video Instead

Look, I'm going to be blunt with you: I really don't feel like writing a contrived recap of a meaningless end-of-spring practice scrimmage where last year's flag football stars are racking up most of the stats and which millions of message board zombies across the country love to obsess about between now and the first week of the season. The McGloin loyalists surely have more mastubatory statistics in their arsenal (5 of 10 passing for 109 yards and a TD) than the #TeamBolden posse does (0 completions and an interception). This means that we're locked in a perpetual West Side Story-style knife fight between the McGloin and Bolden fan camps until one of them is finally gone. Sad, but true.

Anyway, here is some video I took from my iPhone in the media room during postgame conferences. I had to hold it vertically most of the time to capture the faces of the players, all the while twisting and contorting my phone to avoid getting shut out by the big-ass TV cameras. Given that I was losing my press box/media room virginity, things inevitably got awkward. I had that deer-in-the-headlights feeling that prevented me from working up the courage to ask any questions or to even think up of any question that didn't sound semi-retarded. As Eric Thomas of Patriot-News fame was quick to point out though, most of the questions asked by the media are semi-retarded anyway. I'll make sure to redeem myself next time I'm up in the box (hopefully for a game this Fall).
