Dear Wallace Gilberry

Before the game, Alabama defensive lineman Wallace Gilberry said the following:
Gilberry was asked about Stafford. He said he didn't know a thing about Stafford, but said to ask him after the game. "[Then] I can tell you anything you want to know. His birthday, his telephone number, his home address. I will know," Gilberry said. When asked why he would know so much at that point, Gilberry replied, "I've got to know where to send the flowers."
In light of that, The Dean (no really...a Dean from a well known University outside the SEC) sent me the following Thank You Note on behalf of Matt Stafford...
Dear Wallace,

Thank you for the lovely flowers you sent this afternoon. You didn't have to go to all of that trouble, since we didn't really get that acquainted last night.

Sorry I didn't stop to say bye at the end of the game. I just got caught up in the excitement of the moment. I apologize for my rudeness.

Have fun in Nashville at Christmas.

You friend,
Comedy. On a completely unrelated note, you should check out the post-game article from Walter Geiger. Walt is the editor of the Barnesville Herald and Gazette. He wrote about his religious experience on Saturday Night in Tuscaloosa. Good read.

This was taken out of context. Gilberry went on to say he was just kidding, because he wasn't a trash talker. The way I read it, he was laughing the entire time.

He's not laughing now is he?

Taken out of context or not, which I don't buy for a second btw, he still opened his big mouth and didn't/couldn't back it up on the field. Our freshmen filled O-line shut him quite well.
