Please Don't Call Kellen Winslow Sgt. Winslow

Posted By on Mon, Jun 22, 2009 at 2:21 PM


Sadly, Tampa Bay is not on the Browns' schedule this year. It would have been nice to heckle Kellen Winslow Jr. a little bit. Or a lot.

Anyway, Kellen's making himself at home in Tampa and a blogger decided, what with Winslow's "I'm a soldier" quote, and the way he conducts himself on and off the field, to call him Sgt. Winslow. Pretty harmless. Moderately amusing.

Kellen apparently didn't think so, and when he got the chance to meet the guy face to face, decided to ask him to put a stop to the moniker.

When Joe was introduced to Winslow, the tight end asked who Joe worked for. When Joe answered, “,” 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?”
