Though Jags fans may have just endured the most disappointing season in franchise history ever to follow a most disappointing season in franchise history, there was a silver lining. And that silver lining assuredly arrived in the shape of a 6’1″, 225 pound, well-mustachioed rookie sensation named Gardner Minshew.
And while it’ll be months before we get to partake in Mustache Mania™ again at TIAA Bank Field–and highly dependent on what’s certain to be a hard-fought QB battle between the stache and an $88-million acquisition/Super Bowl MVP named Nick Foles–it seems Minshew is not resigned to give up the spotlight quite yet. Earlier in the week, Minshew announced via Instagram that he’d be hitting the road in an RV, traveling the country in an effort “to recenter” himself.
“After a long rookie year, I’ve decided to take a step back, recenter myself the only way I know how … hoppin in my brand new RV and touring this great country. So if you’re anywhere between Jacksonville and L.A., I wanna hear from you: Places to see, anything for free, food to eat, people to meet. Hopefully I see y’all out there on the road, but until then, keep it rollin.”
In a hilarious corollary, Minshew bragged that his road trip would be no less than epic; one of the greatest achievements in human history, in fact, right behind… wait for it… “the discovery of fire” and “the invention of the submarine.”
It’s clear Minshew is going places. Peep the vid below to see the QB sensation’s sweet chariot.
When they look back in history, they are gonna be talking about three things:
