However, Kelly was unprepared for the media firestorm that he would face after announcing that they would be having a “Dogfight Friday” this week.
“Wow, there’s a lot of media here,” a confused Kelly said during his daily post-practice press conference with the media. “You guys must like hot dogs, huh?”
Seated between two “fighting ‘dog” trophies Kelly went on to explain his philosophy behind the so-called “Dog Fight Fridays” and why he thought that having a team-wide hot dog eating contest would be a great bonding experience for players that were new to his coaching philosophy.
“After all,” Coach Kelly quipped, “it’s not the size of the dog in the fight, it’s the size of the dog. . .in the bun! Am I right?!? Am I right?!?” He asked a dumbfounded crowd.
At that point during the press conference an Eagles staff member rushed up to the podium and was seen whispering something into Kelly’s ear.
“Oh, dear GOD!” The new coach could be heard exclaiming. “Someone go find me Michael. Quick.”
