"I celebrate first downs all the time. I'm not gonna stop that. I'm an exciting player. If I do something exciting, I'm gonna show my actions."
Albom responded, "But you were losing, 10-0."
"What does that mean? ... That means nothing to me. The score means nothing," Williams told Albom.
Um, "What does that mean?" Let me tell you what that means, Roy. That means you were losing. And at the end of the game, when that big lighted board showed "Chicago 34, Detroit 7"? that meant you lost. If the score means nothing to you, why would you guarantee a win?
Albom went on to ask Williams if he regretted making the guarantee.
"No, because everyone believes what I said," he told Albom.Um, okay. Whatever.
