James Harrison won't watch the Steelers play the Jaguars
Patriots linebacker James Harrison would seem to have a lot of interest in todayâs Jaguars-Steelers game. Not only does the winner play at New England next week in the AFC Championship Game, but the Steelers are the team Harrison spent most of his career with until they cut him last month.
But Harrison said after the Patriotsâ Saturday night game that he doesnât particularly care about Steelers-Jaguars and wonât watch it until itâs time to start film study on Monday.
âI donât pay attention to sports,â Harrison said. âIâm not a sports fan. If my kidâs not playing it, I donât watch it. If itâs not film study, I donât watch it. Iâm not really into it. . . . Itâs my job. I want to get away from my job. You know?â
Would Harrison ever invite his buddies over to watch football?
âLike, all the guys get together and watch a game, like, thatâs not interesting to me,â Harrison said.
Harrison said refusing to watch todayâs game in Pittsburgh has nothing to do with his feelings about the team.
âNah, those guys over there know I donât watch football,â Harrison said. âI havenât watched football â" I play it because I can do it. Iâm decent at it. Itâs a job.â
Harrison is far from the only football player who doesnât love football the way a fan does. Heâll find out who won after the game is over, and start preparing accordingly.Source: Google News
