Some hopeful fans took stories of That Guy’s involvement in the failed recruitment of LaDainian Tomlinson as proof that their hero will be returning for a second shot at glory in 2010.
“Not so fast” says That Guy’s chief spokesman Ed Werder.
According to Werder, who spends the majority of his pitiful existence jammed further up That Guy’s butt than I would’ve thought physically possible, The Old Gunslinger played only a minor role in the Tomlinson push.
Far from providing assurances about his future, That Guy reportedly texted Tomlinson that he has “no clue” if he will play for the Vikings again. The best TG could do was tell LT nice things about the Vikings organization and their unusually accommodating coach Brad Childress.
We will likely never know for sure if That Guy’s non-committal stance chased LT away from the Vikes. But I’m guessing it didn’t help matters.
