Quickly: how many jokes have been made in the past 24 hours re: Rex Ryan's [alleged] foot fetish and/or [alleged] video of his wife doing "sole action"?
Whatever you just guessed, it wasn't enough. For the first time in history of Twitter, searching for the word "fetish" won't get you fired immediately, and while we're not yet in the "viral video stage" (that should hit right in between Christmas and New Year's), everyone's in on the action. Including, I think, Colts owner Jim Irsay.
Although, can we really confirm that he's mocking Rex Ryan with that tweet? Probably not. If only there was some more sufficient evidence that he was trying to take a jab at the Jets coach ... oh, what's that? There IS? Excellent.
Well, then. I guess we can assume Irsay's making fun of Ryan with the tweets. Or he also has a foot fetish. Or he has a really weird sense of humor and is trying to point out that Ryan's [alleged] "thing" isn't that big a deal.
Look, people are going to be talking about this and making fun of it on the Interwebs for the next few weeks, if not longer. "No comment" isn't going to make it go away.
But I'm not entirely sure that means the owner of another NFL team should be diving headlong into the "Rex Ryan Foot Fetish Meme" waters. Although this could be exactly why he's supposedly leaving the Twitter world soon.
