Hilarious Interview with Matt Schaub!

Jason Cole's June 1st article about Matt Schaub

 

I couldn't tell if anyone else had supplied a fan post about this. I noticed that TexansDC had made a link to this article in in this fan post but it got buried in the banter (in my opinion).

 

The back and forth between Schaub and Cole was great. I kept envisioning this interview and imagining Schaub's eyes getting wider as he restrained himself from slapping the shit out of Cole for constantly going on about Schaub being boring.

For any of you who are lazy like me, and don't like to click on links, this is the priceless back and forth between Cole and Schaub:

Jason Cole: People say you’re intentionally boring and that you actually work at it. Explain why.

Matt Schaub: It’s one of my traits. I don’t know why exactly.

Cole: But you’re not that way with your teammates from what I’m told:

Schaub: I wouldn’t say I’m boring.

Cole: Maybe you wouldn’t, but plenty of other people do.

Schaub: OK, I’m not one to say anything. When I’m asked questions about football and things of that nature, I’m not one to provide bulletin-board material or express a lot of myself through the media. I’m going to keep it low-key and go play the games.

Cole: Where does boring come from? Did a coach instill that? Were your parents like that?

Schaub: I think it comes from my parents and how I was brought up. Coaches have instilled some of that in me, but it’s just not my nature, not my personality.

Cole: Did you ever try to be more entertaining and it backfired?

Schaub: No, not yet. There was a comment last year by one of the local reporters that I needed to be more colorful. So at one of my press conferences on a Wednesday, I wore a colorful shirt and tried to be more energetic while answering.

Cole: So the answers were the same, but you tried to act excited.

Schaub: A little bit. I tweaked the answers a little bit, but for the most part tried to be more energetic and colorful with the shirt.

Cole: Did the reporters pick up on it?

Schaub: Well, I kind of hinted at it, kind of pointed at the shirt. I don’t know if they would have picked up on it if I hadn’t.

Cole: We’re reporters, we’re not terribly bright.

Schaub: I’m not saying that now.

Cole: It’s OK, you can throw us under the bus. . .

 

LOL

The man is subtle! I love Matt Schaub's humor -- and Jason Cole's humor for that matter.

Schaub: . . .I wore a colorful shirt and tried to be more energetic while answering.

hehehe something about this just strikes me as Python-esque.

And then thy go on to more detailed football talk. I thoroughly enjoyed the article so I thought I'd highlight it in case y'all missed it.

Maybe I'm reading too much into it. But Schaub just shot up my list of cool Texans players. Actually, the list is getting rather long =D.  I hope he has a great 2010 season!
