The holidays have passed. And for most of us, that meant opening up a present from a distant relative and feigning a fake smile while pulling out a gaudy argyle sweater with matching socks to boot. And most of the time you get a little self-conscious because we don’t have the poker face of Phil Ivey, fearing that everybody can see right through the facade.
Well Falcons, you have been potentially handed a gift, and Roddy White, your fake smile is not fooling anybody.
Especially since you got exactly what you wished for.
Moments after the Seahawks’ shocking win, White took to Twitter to feign displeasure that the Falcons and Saints will not have a rubber match in 2010.
“I guess we don’t get to play the defending champs,” White wrote.
You don’t get to play the defending champs? Weren’t you the same guy who came out yesterday and said that you wanted to play the Seahawks?
“You really don’t want to play a really consistent quarterback or anything like that,” White told reporters. “Does that answer your question?”
Well, White, after watching Seahawks QB Matt Hasselbeck torch the Saints for four touchdown, you might want to be careful about what you wish for. The Falcons will play host to the Seahawks next week, if the Eagles knock off the Packers.
