Michael Oher is tired of the talk

Were you aware that Michael Oher was the subject of a movie called “the Blind Side?” It was a book written by Michael Lewis, and Oher’s part in the book was the inspiration for the movie. Did ya know about it? Michael Oher is sure knowledgable of it, and he is kinda sick and tired of it.

All the interviews that take place during the week of the Super Bowl, especially on the notorious Media Day, are pretty much rehashing of information that is already out there. Besides reporters trying to get players to make a Joe Willy Namath type prediction, they just hit them incessently about backstories on their lives. Oher’s is probably as well-known as anyone’s not named Ray Lewis. The Baltimore Ravens offensive tackle wants to move on from the movie that brought him into everyone’s living room.

“I’m tired of the movie. I’m here to play football,” Oher said early during his media session on the floor of the Superdome. “Football is what got me here and the movie, it wasn’t me. I always knew how to play football growing up. It was different personalities, stuff like that. Playing football is what got me to this point.”

You mean, that movie wasn’t completely honest? I thought Oher just learned how to play football once he got to high school. Damn movies. Aside from that, you can understand why he is sick of it. He’s starter on a Super Bowl team, and that story is kinda old at this point. He’s also answered all these questions for the last few years. His teammates won’t let up about it either.

“They (his teammates) joke about it, jokes here and there,” Oher told SI.com’s Don Banks. “It’s all fun. I knew they were going to enjoy it and have fun with it. It’s crazy because when it first came out, nobody said one word about it. I don’t know if they didn’t know what I was going to say or think. But now these last couple of years they actually joke around and kid around about it a lot.”

Can’t really feel sorry for Oher, but it is understandable that he wants to move on from it. Unfortunately, for him, if the Ravens do end up winning this Sunday, you can be sure that the Tuohy’s will be front and center with their adopted son and this will just be another chapter in the story.
Michael Oher is tired of the talk.
