Since finding out about Kobe, I haven’t blogged or tweeted anything. No other sports story, or any story, has seemed to matter. Still really doesn’t.
BUT, Earl Campbell casually calling up to SiriusXM Mad Dog Radio as “Earl in Austin” and waiting on hold for 30 minutes is absolutely hilarious.
Immediately dropping “what Kobe did off the field impressed me as a hall of famer“, then following that up with “I’m just an human being living in Texas“– it all is just such a power move. You have no choice but to respect it. Humble brag city, Population Earl in Austin.
