I just chased down Mike Wilbon in a mall
Okay, probably not my most dignified moment.
I just met Wilbon at Tyson's 2 mall. After my husband recognized him, I went after him. I shook his hand and said I was a big fan of PTI. He was really, really nice. He is a very big guy and has greenish eyes. I never noticed that on the show.
He asked, "So who is this?", indicating my son whom I was wearing in his baby carrier. I said he was named Harrison Brady, after Tom and Rodney. The look on Wilbon's face was priceless. He said,"I'm going to have to mention that on the show."
I told him he needed to not write any more articles about taking Brady out and he said he loved seeing them run it up, but he was afraid someone would go for Brady to make a name for himself. I said, doesn't that have just as much chance to happen in the 1st quarter as the 4th and he said no, some young guy would do it after getting embarrassed. He'd just ignore his assignment and try to make news. My husband said Ray Lewis might try that and Mike said no, Tom and Ray are friends. He said it would more likely be some young guy on a team like the Steelers. I said Mike, you know we are watching something we have never seen before and he agreed and said he liked to watch them score.
Anyway, it was a very nice conversation. I had a lot more I could have said, but you kind of forget when you are talking face to face. He was really cool though.
Oh, he mentioned that former Patriot players told him they werre worried about Tom throwing it in the 4th and running up the score. He didn't say who.
