THE CONTINUED COMEDY STYLINGS OF MATT MILLEN
The Lions are the armpit of the NFL. The Freep says that they are working out Cedric Benson and one report says he is signing with them soon. I have no idea what could be funnier than this:
But according to Austin, Texas, city council member Mike Martinez, Benson is about to sign with the Lions.
In a report by News 8 Austin, a 24-hour news channel in Texas, Martinez and Benson, a former Texas Longhorns back, were supposed to announce a program by Benson’s charity to help children get winter coats, but Benson was not in Austin for the announcement.
“Unfortunately, but fortunately, Cedric Benson is not here today,” he said. “He is actually signing a contract today to get back in the game with the Detroit Lions and the reason why that’s a good thing is that the foundation will continue to grow as long as Cedric continues to do what he does on the field.”
As long as he continues to do what he does on the field? “Hey kids–every time Cedric Benson falls down for a gain of 3 yards or less…” And it’s great that Benson will still be close to a lake so he can go boating and have a few drinkies.
The Freep article also says the Lions are working out Shaun Alexander and Vernand Morency. Yet they’ll sign Benson? That Matt Millen and his comedy stylings—it’s never ending!
