Why Was Steve Bisciotti Hoping That Jim Nantz Would Present Him The Lamar Hunt Trophy?
You might have missed it — or maybe I’m just interpreting it wrong — but Steve Bisciotti’s comment to Jim Nantz after he was handed the Lamar Hunt Trophy definitely grabbed my attention last night.
“[It’s a] great, great feeling,” Bisciotti said. “And I was hoping that you’d be up here to present it to me.”
Ravens fans always feel that broadcasters have an unfair bias against their team, but I usually chalk it up to their purple tinted glasses. However, Michael Hiestand of USA Today reports that Patriots quarterback Tom Brady and owner Robert Kraft attended Nantz’s wedding at Pebble Beach last summer.
Was Bisciotti alluding to that? He could have just meant that he was happy to be receiving the trophy.
Either way, Bisciotti thanked Kraft and his family and called him one of the best owners in the league. Which is true. Did his comment to Nantz mean more though?
