Watch Kyle Brandt’s Hilarious Takedown Of Summertime In NYC On ‘GMFB’
May 19 / Tanya Ray Fox / SportsGrid
I know for a fact that there are some people that clicked on this article fully ready to hate-read it while they defend the infamous New York summer with every Brooklyn-Bridge-running, Coney-Island-Instagramming, rooftop-deck-chair-chilling memory that they can muster.
There's just something that happens to people when they move to NYC that causes them to absorb the elitism around them when in public, even when they privately die a little inside with every rent check they write and every $150 trip to the grocery store. And that elitism never rears its ugly head more than when summer rolls around.
Stepping outside from November through April in that part of the country requires playing a daily game of Weather Russian Roulette, and yet the good people of Manhattan still try to bamboozle us into believing that it's all worth it for a few months of sunshine peeking through the skyscrapers and the perfect ice cream cone by the water.
They bombard us with Snapchat photos of their sun-drenched activities in the city while lecturing us on why we just have to experience a 7am run through Central Park on a morning in June, forgetting to send along the photos of the muddy slush, steaming manholes and threateningly unstable scaffolding that they've dodged all winter and spring.
Let's just say that NFL Network's Good Morning Football cohost, Kyle Brandt, is not exactly here for it. He's not here for any of it.
Watch him completely deconstruct the fairytale of the New York City summer in a rant for the ages during his most recent Red Flag segment:
DISCLAIMER: I love visiting New York City and I have a blast every time I'm there and I love every single one of my friends that still resides there, so please don't take this personally. If you read this and are wondering if I'm talking about you, I'm not. My friends are better than everyone else's. Guess that's the Boston in me... ;)
