Keyshawn Wanted His Super Bowl In NY

Now that I think about it, I should have gone for the bigger earring.
While doing an interview about the possibility of the Jets going to the Super Bowl this year, Keyshawn Johnson let it slip that he would have preferred that his own ring have been earned as a Jet, not as a Buc.

Johnson told writer Dave Hutchinson that he wanted his championship to come in New York, not in Tampa Bay. Johnson was a key player on the 1998 Jets team that lost to the Broncos in the AFC Championship, 23-10, after leading 10-0 in the third quarter.

“(Eleven) years later, I still have a sour taste in my mouth,” Johnson told The Star-Ledger. “I still get sick at times thinking about what if. I love the fact that I have a ring, but I just feel it would’ve been sweeter if I haven gotten one in ’98 with the Jets. You know, it’s New York, the media, a franchise that was desperate to get to the Super Bowl.”

Yeah, because New York was really hurting for a championship team. Three Super Bowls, two NBA championships, four Stanley Cups, 27 Word Series — WAAAAAAHHHHHHH! Tampa hadn’t won shit unless you count the Tampa Bay Storm’s string of championships in the 90s or the award I won for staring at chicks on Clearwater Beach while subtly rubbing myself. Actually, now that I think about it, it wasn’t so much an “award” as a “warrant”. But it had my name on it, so I count it.

I think that reporter may have put words in his mouth. He didn’t come out and say he would have preferred a ring in New York over Tampa. He just said it would be “sweeter if I had gotten one in ’98 with the Jets”. “Sweeter” could mean “My life would be sweeter if I had two rings instead of just one”.

Or else he’s a douche.

Keyshawn? A douche you say? Get out!

The guy comes right out and names ‘the media’ as a chief reason why it would have been sweeter for fucks sake.

A bigger mirror to primp in. Surprise, surprise. I don’t hate the guy for being a self-concerned asshat, but I don’t exactly FORGET he’s a self-concerned asshat either…

I always thought he was a dirty no good Jet. Now we know. He can go suck a load of New York cock. Fuck you Keyshawn.

I’ll always cherish the moment when Carolina drafted Meshawn’s replacement while he was broadcasting live for ESPN. The look on his face was PRICELESS.

The guy has been retired for how long? Who gives a fuck if he would prefer a ring with the stinkin’ Jets. Why would you want a ring with a team that the world hates anyways? Fucking Jets, FUCK THEM!

Big Mouth was one of the most overrated WRs in the history of the NFL. He was good going over the middle for a short gain, he wasn’t afraid to take a hit, and he was a good blocker. That was about it. If he ever gained any significant yardage after a catch I missed it. If he had been a quiet modest guy few people would even remember him. Instead he’s a loud-mouth braggart and sadly with today’s media that’s what gets the attention.
