Greg Blache Likes Fergilicious
As reported in the Free-Lance Star, Phillip Daniels is the Redskins' Dr. iPod, coming to the rescue of teammates with less comprehensive musical collections and/or less compulsive tendencies. See, Daniels now has about 44,000 songs in his various digital storage spaces--including six 80-gig iPods--and for nearly every song, he also owns the actual hard-copy CD. Likes to look at the covers.
"Every shelf is full, no more room," his wife, Leslie, told me. "You name it, he's got it."
Daniels said his collection runs from country (he's a fan of Kenny Rogers and Charlie Daniels) to metal (here he mentioned Linkin Park) to R&B (he's been listening to T-Pain and R. Kelly and Robin Thicke) to rap and rock and gospel. He even owns the albums of Brandon Lloyd and Ricky Watters, which might make him the only human on earth who can claim that. Every song is catalogued and sorted and alphabetized and all that. But when he started seeing the disreputable states of some of his teammates' musical collections, he stepped in to help.
"You've seen iPods that aren't organized, that got numbers and all kinds of crazy stuff on there?" he said. "I volunteer: 'Man, let me clean you up.' I volunteer to clean 'em up. These guys, they swamp me sometimes with iPods. I've done coaches, coach Blache, [Steve Jackson]. I've done secretaries' [iPods] here; I've done Coach Gibbs' secretaries', I've done [administrative assistant Lorie Coker's]."
What, I wondered, does Greg Blache listen to? Well, mostly R&B, but he did ask for "Fergilicious."
"I was like, 'Wow, you like that?'" Daniels told me. "So I had to go put that on his iPod. It had the old school beat though."
He did an iPod for Marcus Washington; "everything from Marvin Gaye to The Temptations to The Spinners," Washington told me. "I mean, he's got everything." He's done iPods for each of his four children, and for his wife. Right now he's working on Rock Cartwright's.
"Man, it's a lot of iPods," he said wearily. "Some weekends I have three or four iPods I have to do. And my wife gets tired of me bringing 'em home sometimes, but I say I've got to do 'em for the guys, you know what I'm saying? Imagine if I started charging."
