Oi, bruv, why did the Indianapolis Colts’ latest quarterback trade get roped into the discourse Sunday night?
The whole world was glued to either one of two things on the first Sunday in March: TNT for the slapdash NBA All-Star Game, or CBS for the Meghan Markle/Prince Harry tell-all interview, moderated by Oprah Winfrey.
If you watched the tell-all, you made the right call.
Such an overload of tea was spilled that some leaked out from my speakers.
In another example of how permanently broken the brains of most sports fans are, many of us … couldn’t get through the thing without our minds wandering to Carson Wentz, the newly-imported signal caller who recently changed environments for a far different reason.
And yes, everybody on Twitter had the same joke all cued up.
Twitter still thinks Colts QB Carson Wentz looks like Prince Harry.
OK, first thought? He looks clean, fresh, rejuvenated and thrilled to be out of Doug Pederson’s control.
Second? Guy cleans up pretty decently for a North Dakota boy. How many times did he plug AO1?
The relentless social media mockery only continued as more people tuned into the devastating interview, though most didn’t go beyond the surface level or come up with a new spin on the old favorite.
Come on, Andrew. At least do some mapping!
Nobody asked, but we’ve got a few pitches:
“Is Oprah going to ask Carson if there’s any hope of him ever reconciling with Zach Ertz?”
“Oprah, to be honest, I’m sick and tired of the tabloids using that … (shudders) nickname for Nick Foles.”
“Yes, we still do have court jesters. But enough about Jason Kelce.”
See, there’s something. At least we got the top of mind Reich question in there somewhere. Grounds the joke, makes it more pertinent.
This news story isn’t going anywhere, as the British Monarchy threatens to crumble thanks to Meghan & Harry leading the charge and standing up for humane treatment. Expect more of the same Wentz jokes in the near future, distant future, and eternally, as long as he piles up wins this year.
