Art not imitating life - 04/30/14
I had a chance to catch up with Tennessee Titans general manager Ruston Webster today. Before our interview began, making small talk, I asked him if he had seen "Draft Day" yet. That's the football film starring Kevin Costner that I've blogged about before.
Webster told me he hasn't had time to get to the theater yet. No surprise. GMs are a little too busy for popcorn and fun at flicks right now. No, their time is spent knee-deep in research for the "real" NFL Draft which is a huge day in the lives of all the league's top brass.
In the movie, the fictitious GM (Kevin Costner) has a terrible relationship with the head coach (Denis Leary). I asked Webster if that resembles his relationship with his head coach. Webster laughed and said no.
It should make Titans' fan feel good knowing that Webster and Ken Whisenhunt get along very well...and that, in this case, art DOES NOT imitate life.
