SJ - January 14, 2022

On the latest episode of "Calm Down with Erin and Charissa," Charissa Thompson said a coach once hit on her during a halftime interview.  She didn't name any names, but did reveal that it was the 0-16 Lions, meaning it was likely then head coach Rod Marinelli.

From Mediaite:

“I was like ‘oh coach what adjustments are you gonna make at halftime?’ He goes, ‘that’s a great perfume you’re wearing.’ I was like ‘oh f*ck, this isn’t gonna work.’ I’m not kidding, I made up a report,” Thompson said on the latest episode of Calm Down with Erin and Charissa.

“I’ve done that too,” Andrews jumped in. “For a coach that I didn’t wanna throw under the bus because he was telling me all the wrong stuff!”

Maybe that's what was wrong with the Lions that year.  They were too worried about the perfume the sideline reporters were wearing.

That said, is saying you smell nice hitting on someone?  I feel like if there wasn't some sort of follow-up to that then maybe he was just being nice.

I get it wrong place, wrong time, but probably wrong messenger too...
