King for a Day: Birk Writes for SI


Newly signed Center, Matt Birk recently filled in at Sports Illustrated for the vacationing Peter King. His column, “10 Things I Think I Think” had some interesting points. Here are just a few.

1. I think Favre will play for the Vikings this year. This will start a civil war between Minnesota and Wisconsin. A truce will be reached in this epic border battle after it is discovered at a tailgate party that Johnsonville Brats (Wisconsin) and Grain Belt Beer (Minnesota) are perfect complements for each other.

2. I think the media drives the business of football and I love that fans can’t get enough of our sport, but sometimes I have to laugh at what is considered news in the offseason. If a player skips Organized Team Activities (OTAs), it’s a headline. Newsflash: Ten years ago, OTAs didn’t exist, yet somehow teams were able to pull everything together and play a 16-game season with uniforms and everything. The O also should stand for optional, since OTAs are not mandatory.
