Whoops, I thought I was shooting the shit over a game of beer pong

>> Saturday

In yet another example of sports figures not quite getting how fast news travels, Jim Mora Jr. found himself apologizing for some, uh, interesting comments he made on KJR Radio out of Seattle:

"Dewey, I promise you that. Now, I want to see Ty succeed, and I want to see that program succeed. But if he decides at some point that he's ready to move on and they want me, I will be there. I don't care if we're in the middle of a playoff run, I'm packing my stuff and coming back to Seattle."

Surprisingly, there were some people in the Falcons organization that were kind of concerned about these statements, most noteably...well most noteably everybody. But don't worry, Jim was ready to explain his statements.

"It was me doing a radio interview with a close friend and former college roommate, and just joking about the [Washington] job...I'm doing an interview with my best friend, joking around, and all of a sudden it's a big story. Believe me, there's nothing to it."

Phew, glad you didn't mean it. Especially since your team is in the playoff hunt (and in a weak NFC, even the Super Bowl hunt) and really doesn't need this kind of distraction. People just don't get jokes anymore, I guess. Obviously, Mora didn't mean it when he said...

Mora: You know, it's funny, and I mean that, and I'm DEAD SERIOUS (emphasis added), the further I get away from it the more I'm drawn to it. You know, that's the job I want, so...

"Dewey: You would leave the Falcons for that job?

Mora: Absolutely.

"Dewey": Wow.

Mora: As I'm sitting here, I'm looking at a Huskies helmet.

Let's just blame Michael Vick for this one. He's the coach killer after all.

Wow, you weren't kidding about his actual words being really strong. I'm not sure how he could've expected people to take it as a joke.
