Patriots wideout Wes Welker was asked about his notorious foot fetish press conference on his way to his third Pro Bowl in Hawaii. Despite the fact that football fans were endlessly amused and insole products enjoyed a nice spike in sales, Welker insinuated that he would have kept mum.
Welker now sees an error in judgment. When asked specifically if he felt any regret for taking on the Jets in that manner, Welker responded: “Yeah, sure I do.”
Sitting at the airport in San Francisco, awaiting the second leg of his flight to Hawaii where he’s about to make his third Pro Bowl appearance, Welker took it from there.
“I’m not going to get into any details about it, but I don’t think it’s worth putting coach (Belichick) in that situation,” he said. “So in a sense, I do regret it. … As much as you might want to get enticed into that stuff, at the end of the day, it’s just not worth it.”
I realize that I’m totally missing the point here, but can’t an NFL superstar get a direct flight from Boston to Honolulu? I’m not sure those even exist, and that’s probably a good thing. You just know some curly-haired sportswriter would drop a deuce in the first half hour of that flight and stink up the whole cabin. I know I would.
