Kellen Winslow Is Not a Soldier, Don't Call Him Sgt. Winslow
Tampa Bay Buccaneers tight end Kellen Winslow apparently doesn't like being called Sgt. Winslow, a reference to an infamous interview when he referred to himself as "a soldier."
While a student at the University of Miami, Winslow went on a classic post-game tirade, referring to football as a war and himself as "a soldier."
Apparently, wise-asses across the nation like to bring up the incident to Winslow by calling him Sargent Winslow. Winslow, not surprisingly, is getting a little tired of it.
One Tampa blogger discussed a meeting with Winslow where he affectionately referred to the 6'4", 250-pound tight end as Sgt. Winslow.
When Joe was introduced to Winslow, the tight end asked who Joe worked for. When Joe answered, “JoeBucsFan.com,” Winslow quickly turned to his wife and asked, “What’s this guy been calling me again?”
“Sgt. Winslow,” she answered.
Right away Winslow barked at Joe, “You’re not going to say that no more, right?”
No less than two other times, Winslow asked, no, demanded in so many words, “No more of this sergeant stuff, OK?”
