Coaches are known to get pretty crazy sometimes during their postgame press conferences, but David Bennett of Coastal Carolina may have taken the cake.
That’s saying a lot, because I have seen a lot of crazy postgame pressers in my day.
Usually, the coach will talk about injuries, talk about what his team did right and what his team did wrong, and provide the press with a few quotes and sound bites.
Occasionally, you’ll get a coach that yells until he’s blue in the face. Occasionally, you’ll even get a curse-filled rant.
We all know and love those coaches. There are plenty of YouTube clips to back that up.
There have been tons of great postgame conferences in history, but I have never seen anything like this.
Everything seemed somewhat normal at first, but it quickly got out of hand.
He was obviously making an illustration to the media about his team's play that day. However, he decided that talking about the cat down the street was the best way to get his point across.
It’s kind of far-fetched, but he had plenty of leeway to work with before he crossed the crazy-line.
Things started getting particularly weird when he acted out his interaction with said cat.
When the words, “so I said, 'what are you doing in here, little kitty cat?'” came out of his mouth, I knew we were in for a treat!
Bennett went on to describe how the cat was trapped in their house, but instead of just using words, he acted-out how the cat “went crazy.”
By that time, it was too late. Bennett himself had crossed the crazy-line, and what we were left with is press conference gold.
I urge you to enjoy this. Soak it up for what it’s worth and pass it on to your friends.
I have never before seen a press conference like David Bennett’s and I have a feeling we will never see anything like it again.
It is truly a presser for the ages.
