If you missed this little piece of Twitter drama this afternoon…apparently Phil Simms confronted Desmond at ‘The NFL Experience’ Event in Dallas over something Howard said about his son, Tennessee Vols QB Matt Simms.
Via Twitter, Magic described what went down:
At NFL-Xperience and Phil Simms just threatened 2 hit me b/c I said his son was 1 of the worse QBs in the SEC. I told him "LET’S GO!"
I am DEAD serious about the Phil Simms thing. We all thought he was joking, but he kept going and said he wanted 2 take a swing at me!!
During the season we talked about the Tenn v LSU game and I said "u will see 3 of the worse QBs in the SEC" That’s what Phil did not like.
It ended w/police stepping in between so I could continue my appearance w/fans.
Hey old man Simms, that’s weird! Congrats, you are now highest profile odd and overbearing athlete dad, surpassing Craig James.
Maybe they could settle this with a Rock ‘em Sock ‘em Super Bowl MVP Trophy fight later.
