During the second quarter of the Seahawks 30-29 win over the Rams, Aikman revealed that Cooper Kupp’s father was his backup for some time during the 1991 season.
The former Cowboys QB remembering that fact wasn’t the problem, it’s the way he said it and relayed it to millions of people that had everybody talking about it.
“Ya know Cooper Kupp’s dad was my backup at one point for the Cowboys back in 1991, Craig Kupp. I’d forgotten all about that. And Sam Farmer with the LA Times [publicized it], I didn’t even know that Craig was Cooper’s dad. He was there for, I don’t know, maybe two cups of coffee, it wasn’t very long.”
“But, Craig, I miss you my man. Hope you’re well!”
Imagine somebody forgetting your entire existence and then suddenly bringing it up that he had forgotten you were a living, breathing human being in front of millions of people watching at home.
