Alright, so the guy you love to hate, in the lineup one week, out the next, hyped up, calling out coaches, making gay jokes about Bill Parcells etc. is out of the playoffs. But dammit, he didn’t exit without putting up a fight – cough – Kansas City – cough – if you know what I mean.
Did you see his freakin play early in the game when he caught a pass from Eli (as shocking as that actually is) and got his helmet popped off like a clay pigeon? Dude kept burying ahead like Tom Arnold going through Roseanne. And that’s when it struck me – Shockey’s more Viking than he is Giant. Ya know? A blast from the past…and don’t tell me there isn’t some family resemblance!
