It’s been confirmed now that Mike Singletary took a unique line of reasoning when motivating his team at the half of their loss to the Seahawks on Sunday. He took off his pants and showed them the One-Eyed Pirate Of Doom.
At halftime of that game, Singletary called for the attention of his players. He then dropped his pants, turned around and pointed to his backside. He used this occasion and that visual to describe what happened to his team in the first half.
A NFL source inside the room confirmed the story…and added that Singletary then addressed the team for 3-4 minutes with his pants around his ankles.
The 49ers trailed 20-3 at halftime. They would lose the game, 34-13.
Because nothing inspires a roomful of guys like staring into a man’s anus. That move totally would have worked if the San Francisco 49ers actually had fielded players who hailed from San Francisco. They would have won that game and then sprinted straight to the bars. Adhere to the first rule of public speaking — know your audience…and know that your audience does NOT want to stare into your poop canal. Save it for the bedroom, Sparky.
