As the media waits patiently at Florham Park for comment on one of the all-time worst and weirdest seasons ever, Rex Ryan is just living it up in the Bahamas. Sun, sand, surf, just him and his wife. And no lousy reporters. This is paradise.
So of course the Daily News dispatched a reporter and photographer to the Cove Atlantis resort, where they caught some photos of Ryan sunbathing. (For the curious, he's been reading American Sniper by Chris Kyle.) And what's that on his arm? A tattoo of a woman who looks a lot like Michelle Ryan, wearing only a No. 6 Jets uniform. Unless that's a Bubby Brister jersey, Rex Ryan has a tattoo of his wife wearing a Mark Sanchez jersey.
There's the possibility that it's fake, which is being discussed by actual professional reporters on Twitter right now. Rex is media savvy, and knew the New York tabloids would dispatch photographers to his island getaway, so why not mess with them? That seems less likely in light of this:
Ryan cursed out a News reporter who approached the controversial coach.
"Oh, s—-," Ryan said, waving off the reporter and storming away with his wife.
This offseason is off to a magical start.
