Dallas Cowboys fans had a hard time going to bed Sunday night after another close loss. Fortunately, the players were able to recover a lot quicker specifically Tashard Choice. Choice hit his only hole of the night in the post game, ducking through reporters to get an autograph from Michael Vick.
Tashard Choice has been getting a ton of heat from Cowboys fans as well as the blogosphere for his odd timing to get an autograph from Michael Vick following a home, prime time loss to the Philadelphia Eagles. Choice doesn’t understand the problem.
“My little nephew, he’s two my bro asked so I did,” Choice said. Choice added on his Twitter, “Didn’t know we were on tv. I been knowing vick since tech. Its crazy they blowing this out of proportion.” “I don’t care about that we all exchange autographs. That’s so stupid for people to get mad at.” – http://twitter.com/tchoice23
There are really two ways to look at this. On the one hand, as an Eagles fan if I saw Shady McCoy or DeSean Jackson getting Tony Romo’s autograph after a home loss I’d be irate. It was just two weeks ago that Derek Anderson was called out on national television for joking around during a game in which his team was losing, thanks to his bad play. Whether it is true or not, fans want to believe that their NFL team eats, breathes, and sleeps these games the same way they do. Newsflash, they don’t.
I’ll take this guy on my team any time!
