Following up on his prank earlier Wednesday, Buffalo Bills’ Rex Ryan pranked the New England Patriots by posing a professional football team coach in a call to Bill Belichick today.
Early Wednesday, Ryan posed as a Buffalo News reporter to Patriots wide receiver Julian Edelman during a conference call with the Buffalo media.
Later in the evening, Ryan pulled off another prank by calling Patriots coach Bill Belichick and presenting himself as “Rex Ryan, a competent professional football coach for the Buffalo Bills”.
The transcript of the call is as follows:
Belichick: “Hello, who is this? Make it snappy, I’ve got stuff to do.”
Ryan: (giggling and snorting throughout): “Hello, Bill. This is Rex Ryan, professional NFL head-coach leading the Buffalo Bills, your rivals.”
Belichick: (starts with incoherent gruff muttering) Who the hell is this? Stop wasting my goddamn time. The Bills have no competent head-coach, and they are definitely not our rivals.
Belichick: “Wait, you said this was Rex Ryan? Rex, stop playing around! I was given the phone, told that a real NFL coach was on the line. Don’t you have to practice your excuses for Sunday’s postgame press conference?!”
Ryan: “Um… I’m sorry, Bill. Just funnin’ with ya.”
Belichick: “Call me sir, goddamn it!”
Belichick: “When you get into town for the game, make sure I get two coats of wax on my truck this time, not just one!”
Ryan: “I did put two coats on last…”
Bellichick (interrupting): DON’T CON ME, RYAN!
Ryan: “Yessir, Mr. Belichick”
Belichick: “And get your feet off the desk, you slob! (hangs up)
Ryan: (to himself): “How does he know?”
And Ryan removed his feet off the desk.
The Bills take on the Pats in Foxboro this Sunday.
