Chad Greenway is being hailed as a hero after throwing caution to the wind, leaping into stormy Lake Minnetonka and rescuing a pair of distressed boaters, but not all Greenway’s teammates seem that impressed by his Superman routine.
Matt Cassel for one seems more amused than impressed. Cassel told Michael Rand about his reaction when hearing of Greenway’s act of heroism.
“Oh yeah, I was singing him that song — [in singing voice] “When a hero comes along” — and all that stuff,” Cassel said. “I don’t even know who sings it, but I was singing it to him. They showed a little clip in the team meeting room, and so I asked him where his cape was. It was pretty funny.”
Matt Cassel is not buying Chad Greenway as Superman. Cassel wants to see a little more evidence of Superman ability before he’s willing to go that far. He wants to see some buildings leapt in a single bound. He wants to see some intergalactic supervillains dispatched. He wants to see a damn cape.
That’s how Cassel rolls. He has high standards when it comes to superheroism. He’s probably one of those guys who disqualifies Batman because he doesn’t really have a superpower.
