Somebody Buy The Coach a Coffee!
And Other Fun Stuff From McCarthy's Final Press Conference
One of my favorite stories from Mike McCarthy's season ending press conference of the year? Saying someone wrote "congratulations" on his daily, morning cup of coffee at Starbucks...but he said he still had to drop coin on his cappucino.
How about the next one on the house? Hasn't Starbucks made a 100 billion that they couldn't afford 5 bucks of joe on the house?
McCarthy might be tired, but he joked that he's going to have to learn how to handle so many positive questions, that the Packers broke the record for an NFL team with babies born in one season with the coaching staff and some players having so many kids.
And then I asked if Mike would be involved in the look of the Super Bowl ring, and if he ever thought if he would be a jewelry designer, and he broke this gem out:
"The only jewelry that I have on is what my daughter has given me and what my wife has given me. That is about as far as my interest in jewelry goes. I am the last guy to design a ring, I’ll admit that right here. I got a lot of advice from the players yesterday, so I am sure we’ll have a dynamic ring when the decision is made."
Spoken like a true man that stays out of the wedding ring decision come engagment time.
