The guy whose name I said I wasn’t going to say again until he announced his intentions for next season (headlines don’t count – I need his name in there for the traffic) had a big day on Thursday, flying to L.A. to appear on the Tonight Show with Jay Leno, then taking his kid to see Hannah Montana before finishing the night with wife Deanna, Tim McGraw and Faith Hill at a swanky eatery.
The best thing about the evening for That Guy? No big cheap-shot artist Saints pass-rushers blowing by his pitiful linemen and trying to take his ankles out.
Of course, any time That Guy goes anywhere in public, he is going to get grilled about his NFL future. On Leno, he said what we all expected him to say: nothing definitive.
He seemed pretty good-natured about the whole thing there with Jay on the Tonight Show set. On the sidewalk after dinner with some idiot photographer getting up in his face? He seemed…irritated.
But, he abstained from going full Sean Penn on the photographer, so that’s good.
Next up for That Guy: guiding the Vikings’ free agent signings and draft activities from his hot tub in Hattiesburg.
