Andy Reid: I wear Tommy Bahama shirts to hide the cheeseburgers
If you watched the 2013 NFL Draft, and noticed the Kansas City Chiefs war room, you might have seen a curious sight. Head coach, Andy Reid, wearing a rather colorful shirt. In case you missed it, the guys over at SB Nation’s Arrowhead Pride have supplied a picture of Reid’s shirt.
Today, Reid took a little time to speak on his peculiar decision to wear such a bright shirt.
“You know what, over on the Plaza [in Kansas City] there’s a Tommy Bahama shop,” Reid told The Program’s Soren Petro on Monday. “There’s a lady over there who took care of me, the manager of the store over there. She heard the story about the Tommy Bahama shirts and she sent that one over to me without any fanfare or anything. I appreciated that.”
“Normally I wear that on the second day but I donned it on the first day. The other shirts I had, I had the red Tommy Bahama all lined up and ready to go before that one came over for the second day, so I wore that one the second day. The third day I went kind of plain, I went with the black Tommy Bahama.”
“Soren, if you and I keep this up we might get a deal with Tommy Bahama doggone it. We might get a discount card. I didn’t think about this but we’re giving them a pretty good plug right here.”
Reid also mentioned why he likes to wear Tommy Bahama shirts.
“You wear them and you can hide cheeseburgers underneath and no one will ever know.”
