Rex Ryan stepped up to the podium yesterday with a straight face, presumably honoring the great Leslie Nielsen, and flatly said the following:
“I never realized how similar I am to Tom Brady. The obvious physical appearance would be the first thing. The fact that he’s married to a supermodel [Gisele Bundchen] . . . Hello?”
Ryan then proceeded to pull out the December issue of InStyle magazine, specifically referencing the always coveted full-page ad on page 329, to reveal a picture of his wife modeling Jets apparel.
“Yes, I’m also married to a supermodel. We are very similar in that way.”
Even if you’re a Patriots fan, it’s acceptable at this point to admit you like Rex Ryan. He’s fat, funny and endearing, and will more than likely do a life-altering Truffle Shuffle before season’s end.
Embrace the spectacle.
