Pat Williams: If An Unnamed Source Says He’s Gay, It Doesn’t Mean That He Is

Hypothetically speaking, of course.

Anyone who has spent any time following the career of Pat Williams with the Minnesota Vikings and before that, the Buffalo Bills, is undoubtedly aware of Big Pat’s gift of gab (is the gift that he has…). His seemingly effortless ability to throw an outstanding quote out there for our collective enjoyment/head-scratching. For example, earlier today, the behemoth defensive tackle had an interesting way of explaining how he feels regarding all the unnamed Vikings players surfacing recently who have had less than flattering things to say about head coach Brad Childress.

Behold the loquaciousness of Fat Pat Williams (via the Star Tribune):

“I don’t know. That’s just all reports. Ain’t no names. That’s Sean Jensen. So that’s what Sean Jensen do. He ain’t going to give nobody no names. So I really don’t pay no attention to that. That’s all he-say, she-say stuff. He ain’t going to put no names put out there, so I don’t know if it’ true or not. That’s like somebody say I’m gay, but they don’t have to tell me who said it. I don’t know. But they’re going to believe it. They going to believe it. If somebody starts that rumor, they’re going to believe it. So that’s how it is. That’s all rumor. They not going to tell me who said it, so I don’t know.”

Wait. What? There is a whole lot of stuff going on in that quote, none of which I can confidently say I understand. Seriously, read it a few more times, you’ll only end up more confused. Nevertheless, I agree with everything he said there. Who’s going to argue with Pat Williams? Not me, that’s for damn sure. Another thing we can be sure about: Pat Williams ain’t gay…

(rereads quote again)

I think.
