As the color commentator for Monday Night Football, Jon Gruden has one of the marquee jobs in sports broadcasting. And if you think he got to the top by burying his nose in a book like some kind of nerd, I’ve got other news for you, buster.
Last night, the 51-year-old quarterback enthusiast informed his partner, Mike Tirico, of a major development: his discovery of synonyms.
A lesser man would take a pot shot at Gruden’s lack of education here, but not me. I love his enthusiasm for new things, even if those things are ordinarily learned in elementary school.
