Dexter Manley can’t really help but give incredible interviews, even when he’s doing something really boring like previewing the preseason for WTOP.
Thus, this dialog shortly before the Redskins began their exhibition slate earlier this month.
Host: Now the starters are only going to be in there for a few plays tonight. What do you watch for from them?
Manley: Well, I’m not gonna watch.
Manley: No, It’s preseason.
Host: We’re trying to get excited here, Dexter.
Manley: Well, don’t get over excited.
Host: So if you’re not gonna watch, what are you gonna do tonight?
Manley: Uh, I’m gonna probably be having sex with my wife.
That wasn’t all, though. There was also this.
Manley: These guys are only getting like a five, six-hundred dollar check every week, but when the regular season starts, that’s when the big bucks start.
Host: Is that right? They only get small checks, just enough to pay the bills?
Manley: For training camp, yeah, it’s just chump change. Most of them probably got mistresses, and they’re giving the money out to them.
No better way to preview the preseason than that.
