Reporter Asks Saquon Barkley If He Wants to Burn Down Soldier Field (UPDATE: OOPS)
UPDATE: Yeah so this is pretty embarrassing but equally hilarious. This clip was sent to us by someone very reliable who also got tricked by it. It's clearly not real, it was the handy work of Bobby Skinner of Talkin Giants, who we were not aware of before this. Safe to say, he's pretty hilarious and this was some excellent work. We got got. No other way around it. Well done Mr. Skinner.
We're not taking down the post. Us getting tricked is too funny to remove.
It's late in the NFL season and reporters are just letting the questions fly like there are no consequences. And boy is it hilarious to watch. On Wednesday, New York Giants running back Saquon Barkley faced the press and one question in particular raised more than a few eyebrows.
Barkley and the Giants will be facing the Chicago Bears this weekend at Soldier Field. That is the field where Barkley tore his ACL in Week 2 of the 2020 season. An unnamed reporter mentioned that fact and asked Barkley if he wanted to burn the stadium down. No, seriously, he asked Saquon Barkley if he wanted to commit and act of terrorism on the tree shaded banks of Lake Michigan.
Wow. Just... wow.
On the plus side, if Barkley did burn the stadium down, it would be way easier for Bears ownership to move the team to Arlington Heights like they want to. See, there's a plus side to everything. Well, except that question. It was horrible.
