From his interview with Greg Bedard of the Milwaukee Journal, Ted Thompson claims he didn't pay any attention to the NFC Championship Game. We all know he is lying.
Here is the infamous quote in its entirety:
"We were over here doing interviews until late," Thompson said. "Quite frankly, after we lost in Arizona, I haven't watched any football. I use up enough energy when our team's playing and once we're done, we're done. I heard Minnesota lost the game."
Seriously Ted you didn't think we would fall for that did you?
Keeping that in mind I was able to hunt down some Packer's brass and eventually received an anonymous email that contained transcripts of Ted Thompson during Sunday night contest. Here they are for the world to see.
Transcript Ted Thompson 1/24/10
"Screw that guy. He's a seventh rounder at best. What the hell, its 5:30? Dammit, I told you guys I wanted 10 flat screens in here, and I only see nine. How come this stream isn't working on my laptop?"
"The Black Eyed Peas are the biggest waste of a band, ever. Who the hell is Kris Allen? I hope that guy has a day job."
"Damn, that place is loud. Call Murphy, tell him to start looking into retractable roofs."
"Jesus Payton, you guys know how to convert a third down or what? Weren't we number one in third down conversions this year, Mikey? Pretty sure I hired that guy."
"Thomas Morstead, huh? Is that guy available? Will he take a pay cut?"
"I swear these refs are trying to screw me over twice in one season. Come on, our guy gets banged all over the place and gets a no call while what's his face gets a personal foul flag on every play? Someone call down to the field and get the head guy on the phone. This needs to change in the second half."
"Hold on I love this part."
"ABC - it's easy as 123..."
"Oh my God, oh my God, oh my God. Stay down, stay down. Who hit him? Both of them? Send a card and dinner."
"Damn, when did they sign Ahman Green? Oh, that's not him?"
"Well boys, it's going to be a long off-season. This Favre thing is never going to go away now. We're staying late tonight, I need another blockbuster draft... like now."
"Hey Chilly, you suck!"
(Unrecognizable yelling and screaming. Ted jumps on the conference room table, and starts pop-locking)
"Go, shorty, it's your birthday. We gonna party like it's your birthday. We gonna sip Bacardi like it's your birthday."
"Heads, heads, heads, heads, heads... NICE!"
"Looks like that phone call worked."
"Jared Allen blows"
"Flag, flag, flag! YES! Whatever, Jennings could have caught that. Great call."
"Inconclusive, inconclusive, come on. Whoo Hoo!"
"Ruudy! Ruudy! Ruudy!"
(Mostly yelling and screaming. Sounds of ass slapping heard repeatedly in the background. Mention of a round of "Sex on the Beach" for everyone. Someone heard humming Joplin's "Cry Baby" in the background.)
I don't know folks. Do you believe him?
Through his teeth people, through his teeth.
