So this happened Sunday, something that happens basically every other week on air in the company of Dan Marino. Someone, usually Shannon Sharpe because he’s a fucking moron, forgets that Marino is sitting right next to him and goes off on how a quarterback without a Super Bowl ring means nothing, only to then realize, oh fuck, I just basically told Dan Marino he sucks to his face. Super awkward every time it happens, but ultimately unavoidable because let’s face it, without a ring a QB really does sort of mean nothing.
So the question is this, do you think Marino thinks about not winning a Super Bowl every single day of his life? He has to right? I mean he basically picked the worst post football profession for this shit. If I were him I would have taken all my money and gone to Wyoming or something. Sit on a ranch and fish and never think about football again. But he has to talk about football basically every single day, reminded that he doesn’t have a ring every single day. That has to absolutely eat you alive. Like I wouldn’t be shocked if Dan Marino smashes a chair over someone’s head sometime soon and has a total meltdown. You see guys like Charles Barkley and you know it bothers them, but they probably don’t think about it every day. I bet Charles Barkley only thinks about it when it is specifically brought up, it doesn’t haunt him. But not with Marino, I think it literally eats Marino alive. To be so good and not have a ring. It’s not like any old quarterback not winning a Super Bowl. It’s fucking Dan Marino, and he knows it, just consumes his every waking hour. So much pent up rage.
Anyway, what do people think. 1 for yes he thinks about it at least once a day, every single day and 10 for no way, he has money and fame, who cares.
