What happens when Adam Gase shows up to his introductory press conference looking like he’s all jacked up on blow and/or 40 Red Bulls? The Internet turns him into a meme that will now be used by the New York tabloid(s) — if the New York Daily News exists here in the future. Adam’s wild eyes is all people will remember when he’s eventually fired as Jets head coach in three or so years.
Of course Gase went on the Michael Kay show to set the record straight about the eyes and how Monday went down at the Jets facility.
“I don’t even know what that is,” Gase said on the subject of being an internet meme. “I don’t have Twitter, I don’t have Instagram, I don’t look at the internet, I don’t really watch TV, I watch movies. That’s it. The only time I get to know anything is when somebody tells me.”
He was then asked about his favorite movie (it’s “Field of Dreams”) and weighed in on a topic that he most definitely did not know has been a subject of long-running web conversation for years: Is “Die Hard” a Christmas movie?
I’m not an expert here, but it seems like he’s going to be perfect for the New York job.
