Colts: Reggie Wayne owns guy at bar while watching Sunday Night Football
By Mike Luciano
After some very uneven performances to begin the season, Indianapolis Colts legend Reggie Wayne can finally sit back and be pleased with how his team is performing amid a 3-1 run after an 0-3 start.
They are fresh off of an ugly, but still valid, victory over the San Francisco 49ers despite heavy rain and blustering winds. Jonathan Taylor was able to lead this team on the ground and Michael Pittman Jr. showed why he was such a hyped prospect by making some gravity-defying catches.
Even with the victory, the elements made this game a very tough watch from an aesthetic point of view for large chunks of time, as the passing game was extremely limited in what anybody could do. Wayne didn’t like how Indy missed some chances early, and that prompted a fan at a bar to come in with some snide comments.
When Wayne yelled at the TV following an early miscue, a fan claimed that he must now know how hard it is for him to play in inclement weather.
Sure … Reggie Wayne doesn’t know what it’s like to play in the rain. Wayne bought him a drink and claims the whole bar looked at him in disbelief.
Colts legend Reggie Wayne owned a skeptical fan.
At least Wayne was able to watch the second half in a less surly mood. After the offense stalled in the first half, Carson Wentz was able to take advantage of San Francisco’s lack of tremendous cornerback depth.
Wayne got to watch Taylor run for 107 yards and a touchdown, all while the 49ers were stacking the box in anticipation of a run-heavy gameplan. Wentz had 150 passing yards, and 105 of them went to Pittman, who had both a 57-yard bomb and incredible game-sealing touchdown grab to his name on the day.
If that Colts fans wanted to see Wayne’s qualifications for playing in bad weather, he has his choice of not one, but two Super Bowls to take a look at. This dude needs to brush up on his Colts history if he wants to check Wayne’s credentials when it pertains to playing in a monsoon.
I still don’t know which is more concerning. Is it the notion that someone didn’t recognize Wayne despite his accomplishments, or the idea that someone did recognize him and still thought he didn’t know what playing in the rain was like?
At least No. 87 has a good sense of humor about everything.
