Jameis Winston is just one of the guys

September 21, 2014

That's right! I'm Jameis Winston! And always will be. Good morning, good afternoon, and good night!
All in all, Jameis Winston is just one of the guys, just like you and just like me. He just wants to be part of the team regardless of whether he's been suspended for a game or not. For him, it's just about supporting his bros, and the only way to support the bros is in full pads. Plus, maybe coach didn't really mean sit this one out. Maybe when coach said, "Hey, Jameis, we're suspending you for the Clemson game," coach was really talking to that other Jameis. Coach is always so funny. Not to worry, though, Jameis does everything in pads and a helmet. His identity is wrapped up in pads and a helmet. How else was he going to honor the Seminole tribe last night without wearing their authentic warrior gear? So, if you ever see Jameis Winston, just remember, he's just like all of us, only he wears really badass helmets and shoulder pads.




On a more serious note, though, I would imagine a lot of football players can't stand guys like Jameis Winston, whose antics probably stopped being funny back in middle school or ninth grade, when everyone had to run 'til they puked because he kept having to tell the world: "Hey! World! I'm Jameis Freakin' Winston!"

In other words, he's that teacher who sleeps with his students, a cop who shoots before asking questions, a CEO who always gives himself a bonus, a journalist who just makes stuff up, a mechanic who insists the whole engine needs redoing, even when it doesn't. Everyone else is just doing his or her job, but this guy is something else.

Since we initially posted this, Jonny Auping wrote a longer and more complex depiction of Jameis Winston's place within our conversations about sports. It's worth a read, and you can find it over at The Classical.
