My Imaginary Conversation with Hall of Fame Coach Hank Stram 

Hank: No football blogging again this week? Jesus Nick, it's only week 5, and you're already worn out? How are you going to last an entire 14 week season?

Me: Uhhh... Hank... the Chiefs had a bye this week. They didn't play. And the season is 17 weeks long now including the bye week. You really need to keep up with the rules.

Hank: Oh that's right. I keep forgetting that the players these days are total wimps. Back when I coached, we didn't need a stupid bye week. That's when players were real men.

Me: Personally Hank, I would never call someone who could bench press... well... me... a total wimp.

Hank: Yeah well... what are they going to do me?

Me: Good point.


Not that it will make you feel any better, but most of the guys in the NFL could bench about two of you. I figure we're prolly pretty close in weight, and yeah.... twice of me is pretty much the norm for bench in the NFL.

I have trouble with one and a quarter of me.

Although, Hank has a point. They used to hold down regular jobs in the offseason. That and football would take a toll.
