Text messages from the Pro Bowl
On a related note, Grab Bag Sports was fortunate enough to secure a text exchange that took place tonight between Philadelphia Eagles stars Nick Foles and LeSean McCoy. I think it's safe to assume that Foles would prefer the old Pro Bowl system!
McCoy: Who is this?
Foles: Nick Foles.
McCoy: Oh, hey. What's up?
Foles: Not much. Just got done practicing.
Foles: Wanna hang out?
McCoy: Man, I'd love to. But I'm kinda busy.
Foles: Oh, it's cool. I'll just hit the IHOP or something.
McCoy: I'm really sorry. It's just that Drew wanted to hang.
Foles: Drew who?
McCoy: Brees. You know, he's my quarterback.
Foles: I thought I was your quarterback?
McCoy: No, you are. You totally are! But I mean, for the Pro Bowl. You know?
Foles: It's cool.
McCoy: Drew just wants to run through plays or whatever. He's a cool guy, and he's very focused on the game.
Foles: I'm sure he is.
McCoy: I'd ask him if you could come hang with us, but you know… you're on the other team.
McCoy: Maybe after the game we all hang out together. :)
Foles: Yeah. Maybe. :/
McCoy: Don't you have plays to go over with your players?
Foles: I'm running with the third team. I haven't even gotten a uniform yet. Guess I'm not as good as Drew. Your new quarterback. :(
McCoy: Come on man! You're totally just as good as he is.
Foles: Yeah right, that's why they beat us at home in the playoffs.
McCoy: They did, that's true. But you're young still. Next year will be our year!
Foles: You think so? Really??
McCoy: Hey man, I gotta run. Jimmy just got here with the pizza! I need to grab some, or he might "dunk" it all into his mouth. LOL.
McCoy: Catch you tomorrow.
Foles: Have fun with your new friends.
