Google “Embiid” and found a Tony Romo image

I used google to search for “Embiid” this morning, looking for a recent update on the passing of his brother that died in Africa. You will never guess what I found. Tony Romo? Yes, Tony Romo. There it was, Romo’s image next to the headline. I tried to look for it later in the evening with no success. The snipping tool works wonders when you need it.

Geno Smith: Worried about Mike Vick?

As reported by ESPN, Geno Smith was interviewed by a reporter today. Smith was asked if Vick would be the “best avenue to take” to win a particular game.

 

“I mean, I don’t know what you’re trying to lead to with that question.”

Reporter: “Bringing in Mike as a spark …”

Smith: “Maybe that’s your opinion.”

It’s not an opinion, said the reporter, it’s a question.

Smith: “That is not a question.”

Reporter: “Do you think there’s value in putting Mike Vick in as a spark?”

Smith: “What do you mean, a spark? We’ve already put him in.”

Smith: “It doesn’t make sense. What team do you see doing that?”

Reporter: “OK, so you’re not in agreement with it.”

Smith: “It’s not a question. Next question.”
