“Well, no. Most of the time, it’s just bad teams and they can’t do it. This is a good team that just for whatever reason can’t collectively, mentally, get stimulated to do it every time. And I told them in (the locker room), we put our hands in (the huddle), and you’ve guys have probably seen it, we say…

"There Is No Such Thing As Flop!": Watch Les Miles Angrily, Then…

Les Miles goes through an emotional spectrum here that surpasses even the most skilled practioners of the dramatic arts—it's forceful, angry, instructive, happy, endearing, eloquent, then a little angry again, then back to happy—some of these feelings are just plain unidentifiable. They are feelings only Les Miles… » 11/17/12 9:35pm 11/17/12 9:35pm

Some Poor Bastard's Cell Phone Went Off During John Tortorella's Press…

John Tortorella's press conferences are the stuff of legend: tense, terse legend. At least from the media side, they're more amusing than hostile. But there's going to come a day when the Rangers aren't winning, and the scribes are going to refer to their mental tally of all the times Torts bullied or humiliated… » 5/15/12 10:10am 5/15/12 10:10am

Davey Johnson Is Perplexed And Unmoved By Press Conference Fire Alarm

Okay, let's get this out of the way first. Yes, it's hilarious to hear Nats manager Davey Johnson say, completely out of context, "It was shockingly beautiful, and big. I'm looking at it and I'm thinking, jeez. My first one was in 1966." He's talking about Edwin Jackson's World Series ring. Not a penis. » 4/18/12 9:20am 4/18/12 9:20am

Tim Tebow Waited 16 Minutes And 40 Seconds To Mention Jesus At Today's…

Tim Tebow's New York Jets debutante ball is over, and while he (reliably) avoided saying much of anything interesting, doing a quick analysis of the press conference transcript (via closed captioning) may provide some clues as to how the quarterback (?) will adapt to the New York media sphere. » 3/26/12 2:10pm 3/26/12 2:10pm

Getting shut out by the Edmonton Oilers, and Nikolai Khabibulin to boot? Allowing 27 shots to the Oilers? Having superduperstar goalie Henrik Lundqvist leave the game with foot pain? » 10/23/11 10:00am 10/23/11 10:00am

A Soccer Player Melts In The Sweatiest Press Conference Ever

Over at Sharapova's Thigh, there's an 8-minute video of Espanyol striker Walter Pandiani gradually getting sweatier and sweatier over the course of a press conference. We're not big on "gradual" around here, so we've chopped it up to show how that light blue dress shirt never had a chance. » 9/26/11 10:50am 9/26/11 10:50am

If You Had June 1 In The "Mets Finally Drive Terry Collins Insane"…

Last night's bullpen meltdown wasn't even particularly spectacular, as far as Mets losses go. (And there have been 30 of them already.) But it was the last straw for Terry Collins, who wishes he had less Buffalo Bisons on his team and more Andrew McCutchens. » 6/02/11 11:05am 6/02/11 11:05am

Last Night's Winner: Caroline Wozniacki Goes Solo

Is there anything worse than press conferences? The same boring questions get asked every time, and answered in the same boring way. Caroline Wozniacki noticed this, and decided she didn't need the media's help to continue on with the charade. » 1/21/11 10:50am 1/21/11 10:50am
