Say What?

"It was positive," Kubiak said of the workout. "He did a good job. Some of our people who were over there watching him were amazed at how fast he ran. I don't even know if he was full speed at that time.

Kubiak was talking about a potential player that was brought into the Texans facility for a workout. The player in question is Justin Gatlin. If you follow sports, you might have heard the name. If you don't follow sports, but maybe watch the Olympics, you might have heard the name.

Gatlin is regarded as the fastest man in the world. That title goes with the winner of the 100 meter dash at the Olympics. Gatlin had the extra distinction of breaking the world record in the 100 meters, running it in 9.76 seconds. That's farkin fast.

So lets go back to the head coach's quote.

"Some of our people who were over there watching him were amazed at how fast he ran."

Excuse me? How fast did you think he was going to run? He's the fastest man on the PLANET.

It really amazes me how people say things in public.

My other favorite part of the story is that Gatlin hasn't played football since the TENTH grade. I hope he makes the team, is returning a kickoff - and gets CLOBBERED. I want to see the look on his face after getting that hit. Maybe then he'll realize how stupid it was to get banned from track.

Oh yeah. I forgot. Cuz no one else on the track, football field, baseball diamond, hockey rink, basketball court, badminton court, ping pong table, college wrestling mat, powerlifiting gym, or curling rink isn't on performance enhancing drugs.

Way to go there Nort with adding a little html in the comment. I'm impressed.
