I don’t know how many of you have already seen this video, but I thought it was worthy of a post here at Ramblin’ Fan. This is from the press conference in Cleveland introducing Pat Shurmur as the Browns new head coach. Now, those of you who haven’t seen this yet may be asking… “Why on Earth would he post this video?”. For the answer to that question, you will need to jump ahead to the 2:15 mark or a little earlier. At that point in the video, Shurmur thanks coach Steve Spagnuolo, the Rams’ organization, and the city of St. Louis. Again, you may be asking why you should care. The reason you should care is because Shurmur uses the old “itch my nose while actually giving the middle finger” trick exactly when he mentions Spags.
While I think this video is pretty hysterical, I can’t say for sure if Shurmur actually means to give Spags the finger. Chances are that he is probably just itching his nose, but you have to admit that it’s quite a coincidence that he does it right when he says Spags’ name. I would be a little more outraged if I knew that he actually meant the gesture, but for now I’ll just watch the video, chuckle a little, and think about how much more I like Josh McDaniels as our OC than Shurmur.
