Michael Bennett Talks Deflategate, Russ-Ciara And More


Michael Bennett is not one to shy away from the camera, or any opportunity to share his quirky sense of humor. And this latest impromptu TMZ interview is no different.

Among the topics covered is what Bennett thinks of Tom Brady in light of the suspension issued by the league, who his celebrity look-alike is and his opinion of Russell Wilson dating Ciara.

Given how sudden the interview was, I have to give props to Michael Bennett for how well he handled it. These impromptu TMZ interviews are often how famous people get roped into saying the wrong things, but Bennett warded off the interviewers attempts to create controversy early in the video.

There isn’t a whole lot to glean from this, but it was fun to watch nonetheless. I don’t know if I’ve seen anyone who can be as casual as Michael Bennett and still be funny. That dude is awesome. This seems like a good time to go back through his best quotes. In fact, when isn’t it a good time to go back through Michael Bennett’s best quotes?

[On Marshawn Lynch‘s BeastQuake 2.0] It was the best run I’ve ever seen. I felt like he was running for freedom or something. Boy, he was gone. They haven’t had a run like that since the Underground Railroad. -From The Seattle Times

But then you see her friend, and her friend’s really hot, and you’re like, ‘that’s not my cousin,’ so it’s good.” From the Everett Herald

It’s a great time to be a fan of the Seattle Seahawks, because they’re really good right now, obviously. But also because they’re awesome.
