It’s always something with these 2010 Bears. In one of the weirdest season that I can recall, things take an even weirder turn this week as recently outed foot fetishist Rex Ryan brings his New York Jets to town to face your NFC North Champion Chicago Bears in a key matchup on Sunday. Foot fetishist, you ask? That’s the latest going around thanks to this Deadspin post which include the video clip you’ll see after the jump.
Check out this video of what is believed to be Michelle Ryan, Rex’s wife showing off her tootsies:
The caption on the NY Daily News thinks that this video is somehow Michelle Ryan’s doppelganger, but Deadspin makes a pretty convincing case that this is actually Ryan.
We were told by one source that if this is Michelle Ryan, there’s no way Rex knows about it. But listen closely to the voice of the cameraman. Multiple viewers, including a YouTube commenter, have observed that it sounds an awful lot like Rex. Now, we’re not into feet or anything, but if that is indeed Michelle, and that is indeed Rex, well, more power to the both of them. Like many, many people out there, Rex is just in love with his wife’s feet. Shit, it’s almost romantic.
But the connections only begin with surface resemblances. We found “ihaveprettyfeet”‘s personal profile on a foot fetishist dating site. She lists her location as Ellicott City, Md. When Rex Ryan was an assistant coach with the Ravens, his profile on the official team city had him living with his family in Ellicott City, Md. Michelle Ryan was born in August 1963, a Virgo. “ihaveprettyfeet” lists herself as a Virgo. Michelle Ryan taught high school English before retiring to raise her kids; “ihaveprettyfeet” has a graduate degree, is married with kids, and lists herself as a homemaker. Michelle Ryan once said that, in heels, she was “a foot [shorter]” than her 6’4″ husband; “ihaveprettyfeet” lists herself as 5’2″. To be sure, there is also an Ellicott City “ihaveprettyfeet” listed on this swingers site. It’s a couple’s profile. The husband checks in at a very un-Rexlike 5’10, 180 pounds.
I’m not hatin’ on Rex. If that’s his thing, more power to him and the Mrs., but we can’t let him come to town with this latest controversy unmentioned, so here’s my plea Bears fans. If any of you are going to the game on Sunday, roll out the red carpet for Ryan with some clever signs, like Footloose or One Knee Equals 2 Feet, mmmmm. If you’ve got some clever ideas for signs to greet the other Sexy Rexy, post them in the comments.
