Bart Scott is a quote machine. Last season he provided us with "Can't wait!"—a quote that inspired a ton of hilarious YouTube videos, including this Family Guy-inspired clip. Yesterday, he made quote magic again during an interview with Michael Kay on ESPN New York. Kay asked the Jets linebacker whether he thinks that a rivalry exists between the Jets and the Giants. And he had a rather interesting response to the question.
"Not at all," Scott said. "Like I said, when I was in Baltimore I could remember with the Redskins you had guys fighting over strippers and all kind of stuff. I don't sense that here. I think it is a mutual respect. I think the town is big enough for both of us."
To which Kay responded, "Um, wait, WHAT DID YOU JUST SAY ABOUT GUYS FIGHTING OVER STRIPPERS?!?" (for the record, we're paraphrasing here...)
"When you are in a small place like Baltimore and the temperature is relatively cold," Scott said, "you compete over the same chicks. That's a football players' favorite spot. Especially young football players. It was always a rivalry. Guys fight about, 'Hey, that is my girlfriend and that's my girlfriend.' But, here? Five million people, maybe more. There is plenty for everybody."
Riiiiiiight. So, is this really true, guys? Are Rex Grossman and Ray Lewis down in D.C. right now fighting over...strippers? Please say it ain't so.
