players have not done what i've done some of you former players are not old enough to have done what i've done I have seen all 52 super bowls i've seen every last one i'm

62 years old I know you can't tell I know I know if you're looking here caught for the swag on you dripping so cold i've seen all the super bowls I watched everybody all

of us are in here tonight because of one person tom brady if tom brady wasn't living y'all could be in a super bowl the only way I see us getting in the super bowl and I

don't know why you ain't thought of it all this money in this room y'all ii thought of pooling y'all money together having him killed that tighten y'all up a little bit

you ain't thought about it hell I have i'm tired of tom brady in super bowl every day i'm gil if he wasn't here we could be in the superbowl other super bowl stars

are here last time I saw a championship game i'm from cleveland jim brown was in the championship game 1964 I saw that game when I got it sitting on the

float watching me that's the last time we had a championship in please wayne you seen nothing sense and this is black history so let's have a little black history moment

shout out to all the quarterbacks that started in the nfl five quarterbacks that were african american descent started in the playoffs I just found out it was

five I thought it was folk patrick mahone took his helmet off let me give you a little history 1993 african-american quarterback named charlie ward received the highest

award in college football the best college football player he played quarterback for florida state he won the heisman trophy where did he go after that the new york knicks

cause dayton draft black quarterbacks back there but now they do and that right there is black history it ain't funny what is black history one thing we want

to talk to you all about our celebrations I like celebrations I like touchdown celebrations what I don't like is unworthy celebrations the nba got away if you see if you

dunk and ain't nobody on you but you dunk and you lay your six nine you got an 8 foot wingspan so what you done yes only had to jump six inches that don't call for that

here's the thing or what y'all doing i'm okay with the touchdown celebrations what i'm not okay with is the first down celebration it's the smallest accomplishment in

football it's just ten yards that's here to the microphone now you make a first down now you spit in the football now we gotta wait till the damn ball stop spinning your it's

ten yards get your punk ass down there to the end zone last thing I am a die-hard cleveland browns fan I was raised in cleveland ohio it's been hard lord jesus knows it's

been hard two years in a row one win but this year something happened we got this wide receiver named jarvis landry this boy came up right in front of jim brown

jarvis landry came and change an attitude mitchell started running that thing for the cleveland browns is in y'all's back right now we are on our way but the big reason is

that damn baker may seal that's my man right there I love a great field I like the fact that he he dance he got attitude got swagger and he got two black names baker

mayfield that's neither baker's nephew and curtis mayfield pale colors think of me I have a problem right now because i'm thirsty my mouth so dry right now i'm wearing

this well i'm trying to locate spit right now you don't hey my wife you see me don't you oh you got anything for me any lip gloss what I need oh there is something I

should have asked for this earlier I even cut the baker mayfield joke short because I was dry see when you got large lips you have to provide constant moisture over you

can laugh at that that ain't racial these is my lips i've had these lips my entire life this ain't nothing new they were the same science when I was 8 so i'm not

really trippin we are here to have a good time tonight I just want y'all to know that it's all retarded relax come on I listen to the only real i'm a huge fan of

football I really am I appreciate the game y'all play it's the best game in the world I love y'all thank y'all for coming y'all ready have a good time see ya
