Carson Palmer : Football :: Alan Richman : Restaurants
Carson Palmer, Bengals' QB, on the Saints in today's T-P:
"They don't have a ton of superstars, other than Reggie Bush, really."
I'm a Bush fan, but based on performance so far, he's not even in the top 3 players on the Saints (Brees, Deuce, and Colston are clearly ahead of him). The point here isn't to down Bush. The point is that we've got a lot of good players (add Fujita, J. Brown, Horn), coached well. And Mr. Palmer will find that out the hard way on Sunday.
Transferred to the realm of eating, Palmer's ignorant statement is like saying (Richman-style) about New Orleans: "They don't have a ton of good cuisine, other than blackened redfish, really."
Reggie Bush and blackened redfish are both good, but there's a lot more going on here in their respective realms.
I will enjoy the view from the Terrace of Will Smith and Charles Grant taking care of Mr. Palmer this Sunday. (Too bad Mr. Smith and Mr. Grant won't be able to treat Mr. Richman the same way.)
