Well what do you know, after seeing how well it has worked for Favre and Strahan, somebody else has decided to jump on the “this might be my last season, love me” bandwagon.
Welcome to full time attention whore status Tony Gonzalez.
Here is the best part, Tony is 95% sure he will return next year, but would most likely retire if the Chiefs win the Super Bowl….HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA
Holy Shit, Tony no need to go attention whore to increase your visibility to better your chances of a media spot when you retire. Your future clearly is in comedy. By your estimation the Chiefs have a 5% chance of winning the Super Bowl. How many concussions have you had? Because that is pure comedy gold right there.
Tony, I know you are a football player, and math may not be your strong suite. But if all things were equal, your team would only have a 1 in 32 shot at the Super Bowl, that’s 3%. And all things aren’t equal, your team sucks, Raiders fans look at the Chiefs and go “At least we aren’t them”. Hell Lions fans have Matt Millen running the show, and they have more reason for optimism.
Nope, there is one thing that is clear here; Tony has no intention of retiring after this season. Tony has an eye on retiring in 2 or 3 years, and is trying to increase his visibility in places other than Kansas City. Tony has seen what success Strahan had with toying with retirement, Jason Taylor had as a dancer who then threatened to retire, and the permanent circus Tent erected by the number 1 retirement waffler, Brett Favre. They have all elevated their status from Pro Bowl footballer, to solid B-list celebrity by having their names constantly in the headlines.
So welcome to Attention Whore status Mr. Gonzalez, lets hope your future cries for attention are as comical as the Chiefs having a 5% shot of winning the Super Bowl this season, my sides are still hurting from that one.
