    Default Redskins Blog: Chris Cooley Loves Prank Calls

    Too fun not to post:


    Chris Cooley is a hard-nosed football player on the field, and a free spirit off of it. He recently had a chance to sit down with NFL Network host Rich Eisen on his NFL.com podcast, to discuss, among other things, his love for prank calls.

    The topic came up when Eisen referenced an off-air conversation where Cooley had promised to prank call him the night before the show. For clarity's sake, Eisen used to be a host on ESPN, and this is what Cooley said:

    I really wanted to prank call you and make it be something that you'd be mad about, and then just bring it up, mid-podcast. I can't remember who I was going to be. I was going to be somebody from Sports Center, and I was going to say that you were the absolute worst host of a show, it was a joke...You'll get your prank call. I would have done my research.

    From there, Cooley launched into a hilarious description about his history of prank calls with other NFL players. He also admitted that while he had previously told Eisen he had the mentality of a 17-year-old, he may actually be more like a 14-year-old:

    There's some fun calls to make. I've been calling A.J. Feeley for the last three years, and I actually finally ran into A.J. to talk to him about this, and it blew his mind that it was me.

    I call him, and I pretend like I'm calling Jay Feely. So the other day I called him and said, 'Oh, hell of a job kicking out in Arizona this year. You're a great player, man, I love watching you. You're an inspiration as a kicker.' So he had saved all of these voicemails.
    Cooley said the reaction from A.J. was priceless:

    'Why are you doing this to me? I'm NOT Jay Feely!' So for three years this went on--and Jay Feely, if you're listening to this, I do this to you too. I turn right around and call Jay Feely.

    I don't know why this is funny, it's fun to do though. No, I don't block my number. Occasionally [they call me back] I just don't answer it.

    CC47 is a riot. Hanging out with him for a day must be an exercise in patience and understanding.

    Got to post this pic from the pro bowl...

    The simplicity in me is complicated.
    I live in my own little world, but that's ok. They know me here.
