Chris Cooley Continues to Amuse Me: NFL.com Chat Highlights

Eventually, a lot of things that are novel and consistently humorous at their start, quickly lose luster and become immensely annoying. For lack of a better description, let’s just call it “Mike and Mike” syndrome. I still listen to those guys in the morning, but their shtick has grown old and tired. He’s the fat former athlete…he’s the metrosexual little guy…yup, I GET IT. I’m really hoping this doesn’t happen with Chris Cooley.

The Redskins tight end has built himself a little self-contained media empire, and transformed himself into a psuedo Internet celeb, whether it’s his ever-popular blog, his upcoming reality show or just rockin’ out on stage with Steel Panther. He’s dangerously close to becoming overexposed and losing that every-dude mass appeal based on sheer fan fatigue – Cooley, again? OK, check that, he is overexposed who are we kidding. Luckily, I for one still find him immensely entertaining. Latest case in point: his NFL.com chat.

Earlier today, NFL.com hosted Cooley for a little live discussion. While there were no huge headline-grabbing bombshells, it was classic Chris Cooley — approachable, seemingly genuine and pretty funny given the context and the medium. For the most part, I find these fixed-time online chats incredibly boring. Something about the way Cooley approaches this one, like his other media endeavors, makes it appealing.

Here were a few of my favorite “one-liners”:

Q: Have you ever gotten in trouble for posting meeting or game plan notes on your blog?
Cooley:
I’ve never gotten in trouble for posting anything on my blog. The only gameplan notes posted on there, were overshadowed by a penis picture, which the team was not that concerned with. The NFL had a few more concerns, though.

Q: Hey Chris, I’m a high school teacher and football coach here in Oregon…I’m also a diehard skins fan! My students get extra credit when the skins win…would I be taking it too far if I painted my classroom in burgundy and gold?
Cooley:
I think that you should strongly encourage the janitorial staff to paint the classrooms burgundy and gold. You should get the art classes to put Redskins logos on top.


Q: I think Jared Cook will be better than you. What do you think?
Cooley:
I do not know who Jared Cook is. Obviously, you’re not a ‘Skins fan. I think Paris Hilton would probably be a better sports analyst than you.

Q: Sup Chris, What Do you think of the newcomer brian orakpo?
Cooley:
He has a deep voice and lots of muscles.

Good stuff. Keep keeping it real Captain Chaos.
