The NFL's now annual Pro Bowl draft is officially a wrap. I only caught a brief moment of it before coming to my senses, but apparently we all missed out on what will be one of the favorites for best comments of the year. Andrew Luck was the first selection on Wednesday, going to Cris Carter's team. At some point he was talking about losing in the playoffs, and he had this to say:
Pretty hilarious moment with Andrew Luck a minute ago. Was talking about the feeling of losing in the playoffs. "You feel a bit deflated."— Katherine Terrell (@Kat_Terrell) January 22, 2015
There was a pause, and then Luck realized his mistake. "Aww man," he says, and everyone started cracking up.— Katherine Terrell (@Kat_Terrell) January 22, 2015
Luck did NOT say it on purpose, but realized he walked right into that one.— Katherine Terrell (@Kat_Terrell) January 22, 2015
I wish I had watched this, and I have yet to find any video of him saying it. But, could that have gone any more perfectly? And the fact that he was quick to recognize he had just stepped in it makes it so much better.
The Pro Bowl draft results can be viewed HERE. For those that are curious, Joe Staley and Antoine Bethea will be playing on the same team. Staley was selected No. 13 on Wednesday, going after tackle Tyron Smith, but before tackles Joe Thomas, Ryan Clady, Trent Williams and Duane Brown. Bethea was selected No. 43, and was the second to last player picked.
