"As the fans know, I never got along with Shockey at all. We had a very bad relationship, but leave that aside, I think Shockey in his own mind, could never get over the fact that the Giants won without him."
Why oh why does Mike ALWAYS have to preface a point by talking about HIS personal relationship with a player? Who the hell cares that you didn't get along with Shockey? Who gives a shit that you and Billy Wagner don't do Sunday Brunch? Who in Gods name cared that you and Tim Russert hadn't made up before he died? This idea that when talking about someone, that you have to first mention the state of your personal relationship with that person, is ludicrous. It just goes to show what a super-sized, inflated ego you have.
You said the following sentence "We had a very bad relationship, but leave that aside..." Well, if you are going to leave that aside, then why bring it up in the FIRST PLACE!!!!
No one cares about your personal standing with these players when you are judging or commenting on their performances. When Russert died, you had to spend hours repeating how you didn't return his calls and you guys were not on the best terms. Stop making everything about YOU!!!!
