See You In The Smack-Off

You think of the greatest smack talkers in sports history – the same names always come to mind: Charles Barkley, Michael Jordan, Muhammad Ali, Andrew Luck.

Don’t be deceived by the flip phone and the Amish beard… Andy Luck will get up in your grill and turn you inside out, 8-Mile style.

According to the Wall Street Journal, Luck likes to applaud and compliment anybody who hits him on Sunday. When a pass rusher decleats him in the pocket, Luck blasts him with … Check this… “Nice play, buddy!” “Good hit!”

Now, I know what you’re thinking – Andy’s smack talk sounds like Sesame Street. But take it from me… As a guy who’s spent my life on the LA freeways… There’s nothing that enrages another driver more than smiling and waving when they give you the finger. That’s what Andy’s doing. And it’s annoying the guys who are blowing him up.

Eagle Nolan Carroll got a nice pat on the back from Luck and had no idea how to respond “I’m like, what’s going on? Aren’t you supposed to be mad?” Why get mad, when you can get glad?! Swell hit, fella! Imagine the stuff Andy says to JJ Watt after every sack… Wow!! JJ does it again! You’re incredible, Mr Watt. I’m thrilled to be sacked by you. M-V-P! M-V-P! I’ve never even hit Andy and I’m annoyed just thinking about it. But I respect it.

Chuckster told AC Green God didn’t give him a jump shot. 45 would tell defenders where he’s taking his next shot. Ali told Smokin Joe he’s so ugly that blind men go the other way. And Andrew Luck says- Terrific play, have a nice day. Andy, straight fire, pal. See you in the Smack-Off.
