Leslie? Shut. Up. God.

I think this might be why some guys hate it when girls try to talk football:

“As much as I love Ben,” Leslie Bagnoli told KDKA, “I think he needed another week off, but I still think he did great. I mean, yeah, a couple plays here and there but our boys are gonna do it. You know, we’re Super Bowl Champs. We’re gonna make it!”

Twenty bucks says that statement was followed by the raising of a beer in the air and a super screechy “WOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!”

Assuming Leslie is a girl.  If Leslie is a guy, then I’m sure that statement was followed with the satisfying crunch of a fist to his face courtesy of his other male friends.

    When asked to one of the “analysts” on ESPN this morning if Ben should have sit out for Charlie the reply was “No! So he threw some INT’s… he’s a Super Bowl Champ! He shouldn’t sit. Stick with him over Batch.”

    I think they too have been hitting the sauce.

    Ditto, Spoon and Matt H. Let’s all get off the Big Ben train now…he’s NOT a Super Bowl champ. Yes, he helped win it, but there were a lot of people who saved his ass in the AFC Championship and Super Bowl. Whether Ben starts or not, Cowher’s gotta learn to “coach to win.” Ben throws interceptions, sit his ass down and put Batch in.

    I saw Leslie on KDKA this morning. She looked and sounded exactly as you described.
