Peter King better hope this isn’t an omen. Sports Illustrated’s senior NFL writer just launched his Monday Morning Quarterback (MMQB) site, and he is touring NFL training camp sites in a branded RV.
While heading from Western New York to Ohio — and perhaps the Pro Football Hall of Fame — on Wednesday night, King’s MMQB RV got stuck in the mud in a Jamestown, N.Y. field. The football scribe/Web entrepreneur quickly turned into a breaking news reporter by tweeting updates on his RV’s status.
This is Cronkite-covering-the-Tet-Offensive-type stuff:
Hats off to those helpful New Yorkers; they may have saved us all from an evening full of “Race with the Devil” references.
Still, if you’re Peter King and your promotional RV gets stuck in field muck on the way to the Pro Football Hall of Fame, don’t you at least ask yourself if a higher power is trying to tell you something?
