to get a little sunshine at the end."

-Martellus Bennett

he's stealing lines from Sidney Dean

When the Black Unicorn speaks...

I listen.
Sounds like he is talking about starting his career with the Cowboys  
steve in ky : 9/19/2012 9:03 am : link
in comparison of now being with the Giants.

Giants = sunshine
It's sort of close

The right quote, in the sense that it has some of the words, just exactly opposite.
We've got characters(the good kind) that's for sure.  
Big Blue '56 : 9/19/2012 9:08 am : link
Bennett, Weatherford, Rolle, Osi, even JPP
so he is calling himself  
Blue Baller : 9/19/2012 9:09 am : link
a dog's ass?

or are the cowboys the dog's ass?

I'm confused...
My 9 year old has latched on to Bennett  
Matt in SGS : 9/19/2012 9:11 am : link
he's already one of his favorite guys on the team and he just calls him the black unicorn, not even Bennett anymore. It was hilarious on Sunday when he caught the (then) go ahead TD, my son shouted out "The Black Unicorn!". My wife was horrified and I had to explain that Bennett gave himself that nickname.

When JPP speaks, I can only make about about half the words, but I know enough to be frightened.
drop a few less...  
ct.fatboy1080 : 9/19/2012 9:12 am : link
passes and your quotes will really be funny. too many drops so far...i'd like to see a TE with sure hands....he hasnt shown it yet.
every party has a pooper..  
JCin332 : 9/19/2012 9:15 am : link
LOL, k  
Giantology : 9/19/2012 9:16 am : link
fatboy, Were you saying the same thing about Cruz after Game 1? Nobody is gonna catch every pass. Bennett has had some drops, he has also more than made up for it with some nice catches and tough running after the catch.
well, it's been a while since I've watched the movie  
Greg from LI : 9/19/2012 9:22 am : link
I remember something about sunshine and dog's asses
Victor Cruz had a record-breaking, Super Bowl winning season for us.  
Klaatu : 9/19/2012 9:24 am : link
I'll cut him a little more slack than I will for Martellus Bennett, who still has a hell of a lot to prove.
Greg here is the quote you are speaking about..

Opal Fleener: Sun don't shine on the same dog's ass everyday, but, mister you ain't seen a ray of light since you got here..

Similar yet so different..MB is an artist..!!
He was talking about the game  
BillyBoy8384 : 9/19/2012 9:29 am : link
During the first half Bennett dropped 2 TD passes. In the 4th QT he had his go ahead score. His weird metaphor is basically saying, I dropped 2 TD's in the first half then I caught the go ahead score in the 4th QT. Hes not referring to himself as a dogs ass. Just his missed chances. My coach, who was black, coached an all white team, he used that term all the time. Its like saying if you are playing well and have 2 drops, then have a big one at the end of the game. My coach would alwys say " keep on executing our gameplan and eventually the sun will shine" Why Bennett used a dog's ass, I have no idea, hes a character.

Ah lubma team baby!

Your JPP post about being frightened ....

Hysterical. Made me laugh a lot.
Since the topic has swung to drops  
wgenesis123 : 9/19/2012 11:11 am : link
It always amazes me how a guy can get the dropsies and Eli does not seem to hesitate to go right back to him. Hardly old school but effective, guys need their confidence.
It's an expression...  
ConMan22 : 9/19/2012 11:33 am : link
"the sun shines even on a dog's ass sometimes" (or something to that effect)

same thing as saying, "Every now and then even a blind squirrel finds a nut."
Did not hear much out of the Black Unicorn last week  
wgenesis123 : 9/19/2012 12:49 pm : link
and he caught a nice TD against his old mates. Perhaps he is smart enough to have his fun when the Giants win.
Lock this guy up so I can get  
jpkmets : 9/19/2012 12:52 pm : link
my 85 jersey. Unsure whether to put Bennett or Unicorn on the back, tho.
LOL @ having Unicorn on the back  
islander1 : 9/19/2012 12:55 pm : link
the first time I see that on a Giants jersey, I'll know it's a BBIer
