Deadspin is at it again, and this time they’ve set their sights on Michelle Ryan, wife of New York Jets head coach Rex Ryan. The site has posted foot fetish videos starring a woman that looks exactly like Michelle, although neither the big man nor his wife has yet been reached for comment.
We were told by one source that if this is Michelle Ryan, there’s no way Rex knows about it. But…multiple viewers, including a YouTube commenter, have observed that [the voice of the cameraman] sounds an awful lot like Rex. Now, we’re not into feet or anything, but if that is indeed Michelle, and that is indeed Rex, well, more power to the both of them. Like many, many people out there, Rex is just in love with his wife’s feet. Sh;t, it’s almost romantic.
Ryan, in his second year at the helm of the Jets, and his is easily one of the most-discussed teams for off-the-field incidents since the 2007 Cincinnati Bengals. After being the NFL’s feature team on the HBO miniseries “Hard Knocks,” the team has fielded inquiries about sexual harassment in its locker room, sexual harassment charges alleged against its former quarterback, the burial of perfectly functioning sports equipment, a guy turning down the team so he could work on the railroad, and an allegedly rogue coach interfering with the field of play. And yet the Jets would still go to the playoffs if the season ended today.
This is conclusive proof that being an alleged foot fetishist makes one a better leader of men. Hey, you can’t argue with science.
