Tom Coughlin, Talespinner

January 15th, 2008at 08:13pm Posted by Eli

New York Giants head coach Tom Coughlin reminisces about his days in Green Bay (where his current and former teams will compete for a Superbowl berth this Sunday):

Coughlin was once a wide receivers coach in Green Bay, before he came to the Giants in a similar capacity. Like Manning, Coughlin is not a fountain of anecdotes when it comes to frigid environs, or anything else.

“I don’t remember,” Coughlin said. “Of course it was cold. I don’t remember any game that was more cold than others. From Thanksgiving on, you can expect any kind of weather at that point in time. I remember a day in Chicago one day that was really cold.”

I’m not sure if that’s really the full quote, or if Bondy chopped it there for effect. For all I know, Coughlin could have gone on at length about how it was so cold that they had to pour warm water on the receivers’ hands to remove the ball, or he could have just continued on in the same vein: “And then there was this other day in Denver which was almost as cold as that day in Chicago, but not quite, and this day in Buffalo that was colder than both of them, and then there was that day in Dallas that wasn’t very cold at all…”

I also liked the bit about Bret Favre possibly being part Yeti.

Oh, and before I forget…

GO GIANTS!!! WHOOO!!!
