This week's Straight Outta Stockton focuses on ESPN's Monday Night Football analyst Jon Gruden. We may have Gruden for a limited time, so we need to all enjoy his intense, zany antics while we can. Outside of Dick VItale, I don't know if we've ever seen an analyst as enthusiastic about his sport and every player who takes part. But the funny thing about Gruden is I'm never annoyed by it, it's actually entertaining to see just how far Gruden can go with his admiration of certain players, usually quarterbacks. It's like its own game within the game. And on the plus side, it gives us plenty of good material.
Last night it was Redskins rookie Robert Griffin III who could not escape Gruden's embrace as he led Washington to a victory over the New York Giants. If only ESPN3 could devote a feed to Gruden commentating on RGIII doing every day things like going to the supermarket and brushing his teeth.
"This RGIII, I tell ya Mike, look at his fundamentals. That circular motion is pivotal to his success and great hygiene. Those molars don't stand a chance against a guy like this Robert Griffin. Let me tell ya. He is changing the way people brush their teeth. He's a great brusher, a great leader, and just a great guy. Wow."
Here's the best tweets from last night's Jon Gruden-RGIII love affair...
