Cooley promises Peanut Butter Jelly dance

The biggest news emerging out of Chris Cooley's Friday appearance on 106.7 The Fan was this: that Colt Brennan recently texted him and requested Cooley perform the Peanut Butter Jelly dance the next time he reaches the end zone. Cooley didn't exactly guarantee such a performance, but...the possibility is at least out there.

"I feel good about that dance," Cooley said.

You can actually watch Cooley perform said dance right here. It has a lot of potential.

In less ridiculous news, Cooley discussed his recent concussion at length, including a side effect I wasn't familiar with.

"I had a lot of anxiety," he said. "I actually went and did LaVar's [TV] show, and there were fans screaming and stuff, and I wanted to strangle somebody. I had so much anxiety, and I felt weird about it, but when I went to see the doctor the next day, that was one of the first things they asked me, if I had nervousness or anxiety."

Cooley said by Tuesday, he had no symptoms, and he encouraged the Junkies to control their nervousness on his behalf.

"I'm not nervous and you shouldn't be nervous. I'm fine and I feel fine. I passed all the tests. I'm fine," he said. "I'm taking it very seriously. If I had symptoms and I felt like I shouldn't play, there's no way that I would play....I practiced yesterday, felt fine, got hit a little bit, there was no issue, and I feel like I'm ready to play. I'm not worried about it. It's not something that I'm willing to risk, my mental health in the future, but I feel confident in the way I feel."

Cooley also discussed the Brett Favre investigation, and why not, since he had one of the NFL's more prominent electronic transmission of crotch shots.

"I felt for him," Cooley said of Favre. "You know, I actually got interviewed by the league for that. And the guy actually said, 'I think you and your buddies got together and had this as a little joke.' And I said, are you crazy? If i had that as a joke, i would have taken that picture? No. I don't think so....I don't know. I felt bad for [Favre]."

How much did Cooley get paid to hang out with a bunch of 13 year old girls? Yeesh.

I was wondering that too. Why was Chris Cooley at a Mitzvah?

I loved when Cooley's mom told the press after Cooley's controversy that "it's never a good day when your son's penis is on the Internet."

Correction: that was actually not the "peanut butter & jelly" dance, it was in fact the "average white guy" dance.
