“Scumbag James Harrison” goes off in Men’s Journal interview

If you have not seen it by now, Steelers linebacker James Harrison absolutely went off on a few subjects in an article at Men’s Journal. He predictably rips Roger Goodell and the New England Patriots, but surprisingly even spews some venom at members of his own team.

Some people seem to admire Harrison’s “refreshing” honesty. Personally, I think that Harrison comes across like a classless idiot, even though I simultaneously find his story of hard work and perseverance inspiring, as it speaks to the genuine fire in his heart and his extreme mental and physical toughness.

James Harrison is, without question, a complicated and multi-layered figure, a compelling amalgamation of virtue and vile born to be a star figure on America’s gladiatorial gridiron; but ultimately, I think he pretty much just comes across as a scumbag in this interview.

So, in the spirit of Reddit and one of the many memes often found there (which started as “Scumbag Steve” if you want the background), let’s salute “Scumbag James Harrison” and the most notorious of the comments in his Men’s Journal interview heard ’round the sports world.











(By the way, my guess is that 99% of you won’t get this last one. That’s okay. It’s another meme involving Bear Grylls and his urine-drinking ways. Here, this might help you understand the context.)
