For anyone who has seen the movie “The 40 Year Old Virgin” everyone remembers the scene between Cal (Seth Rogen) and David (Paul Rudd) playing video games and verbally sparring about each other’s manhood. That scene brought out some of the funniest responses to that question.
- “Because you macramed yourself a pair of jean shorts”.
- “You just told me you’re not sleeping with women any more”.
- “You like Coldplay”.
Now it looks like we can add “because you pulled your pants down attempting to motivate a locker room full of men”.
Far be it from me though to question someone like Mike Singletary but this dude is off his rocker. Not only did he flip out after the game with the media but now it has come out that at halftime he pulled his pants down in front of the team.
A team spokesman Thursday confirmed a report by Arizona radio station XTRA’s Mike Jurecki that Singletary dropped his pants in front of his team at halftime.
Singletary is not available to the media until Monday, but he did issue this statement: “I used my pants to illustrate that we were getting our tails whipped on Sunday and how humiliating that should feel for all of us. I needed to do something to dramatize my point; there were other ways I could have done it but I think this got the message across.”
Singletary’s stunt didn’t work so well as the Niners who were trailing at halftime 20-3 lost 34-13 to Seattle. I guess the players couldn’t get over the nightmare fuel of their coach dropping his draws for motivation. I guess the players should just be thankful that it wasn’t Norv Turner pulling that stunt.
I have just one thought of wisdom for Singletary. Mike don’t forget you are in San Francisco.
