Jon Gruden in rare form during Monday Night Football
Posted by: Pete Roussel on Tuesday October 01, 2013
The Saints took a 35-10 lead into the fourth quarter on Monday night at home against the Dolphins, but the best entertainment came late in the Monday Night Football broadcast thanks to Jon Gruden.
Quote No. 1: In amazement of Drew Brees’ performance, Gruden said, "He's a surgeon. He'll shred ya," which prompted New York filmmaker Amos Posner to humorously tweet, “Never, EVER go to Jon Gruden's surgeon.”
Quote No. 2: Later, after a nice completion by Brees, Gruden dropped this dandy: "That's sluggo seam, Tirico. It's so popular in New Orleans, it's like a beignet."
Gruden’s kettlebell swing demonstration: With the game out of hand, ESPN decided to detail Sean Payton’s cross-fit workout routine. Gruden decided to show the fans on LIVE television the part of Payton’s workout that he’s most impressed by – the kettlebell swings. You must see this.
Spider 2 Y-Banana: And later, Gruden lit up with joy when the Saints provided him the opportunity to talk about Spider 2 Y-Banana. Watch, as Gruden says, “There’s a beautiful banana. Doesn’t it look like a banana, Mike?”
Gruden was clearly in his element last night.
