“It’s like a drug,” Adam Schefter told HBO’s Real Sports about the rush when he drops a big scoop on his 7 million Twitter followers and millions more on TV. In an interview that runs Tuesday night on Real Sports w/ Bryant Gumbel, we’ll learn that Schefty is pretty much addicted to the game at this point in life. A 52-year-old man is so married to the game that it has become his drug and the scoops just keep coming which has turned this Big J into a dependent.

Look into those eyes and tell me you don’t see a junkie. A junkie who just can’t get enough scoops from agents and general managers who want to form the daily news cycle narrative. Imagine Schefty’s mornings. Imagine what he thinks when he gets out of bed. I picture the phone going off at all hours. Just burning up the battery. Scoop after scoop. He wakes up, doesn’t even think of busting off an early morning poon run, just straight to the scoops. That’s just the impression I get.

Now don’t get me wrong here. You have to respect a guy who is so married to the game that he rarely takes time off. Take me for example. I would jump off a bridge if I had to stay connected to you idiots all weekend. This weekend I spent about 16 hours laying tile in the basement. The rest of the time I spent taking the kids to the bouncy house, making breakfast, sleeping, barely watching TV.

I can only imagine Schefty barely slept this weekend. Maybe it’s time after the Super Bowl to get a vacation?  Remember back in 2013 when Schefty answered a dreaded vacation question?

I don’t take vacation, literally. First of all, I’m married to a woman who doesn’t like to fly. We have five dogs. We have two kids. If it were up to me, we would take one, because I sometimes feel I need one. She doesn’t like to leave the house. So literally never go on vacation. Never.

At this point Schefty is so far into the drug it seems to be all he has. Married to the game and it appears it’s not changing. Look at how tired those eyes appear. How long can this man keep up this grind? That should be a Super Bowl storyline.
