Ahhh our old fried Chris Cooley, Remember him? He once said this about Sidney Crosby:
Sidney Crosby is good at talking shit, Alex Ovechkin is good at hockey. I didn't realize this until yesterday when I thought that I was going to see two of the greats in the NHL. I saw one who is great and he was wearing a red jersey. The other one, I saw him cry like a 7 year old who got beat up by the school yard bully. Maybe he's mad that Ovechkin has 20 more goals than him. Or maybe because his team won't make the postseason.
If only he would have shown the same passion for his job. Cooley was cut yesterday:
The Washington Redskins released tight end Chris Cooley Tuesday, announcing after Tuesday’s practice that the nine-year veteran–one of the most popular and recognizable players on the team–is being given the chance to find a starting job elsewhere.
Cooley said he believes he still can be a productive NFL player but it would be difficult for him to play for another team.
“I’ll take some time and make sure what I do in the future is exactly what I want to do,” Cooley said.
“It’s been awesome,” he added.
Crosby, the 7 year-old that Cooley reference, we will make 100 million over the next 12 years. Cooley will probably park his car for him.
