Seeing Taylor mobbed by media in front of the facility as he was leaving today to head to his offseason plans felt like a bookend to that earlier anecdote, which had ended with me sitting in my car with Taylor’s luggage, watching him push through the media throng to get inside.
Today, Taylor’s answers about his future were predictably vague. “I don’t know. I really couldn’t answer you,” he told the media. “I haven’t talked to Vinny or Dan or Coach Zorn about it. Again, the season ended twelve hours ago, and there’s questions that need to be answered at this point. I know everybody wants answers from not only myself but all the people on this team and what we’re going to do in the draft and all that crap. But nobody has answers yet; there’s a lot of time between now and then.”
Questions about dancing were kept to an absolutely minimum — none of them that I can overhear — but Taylor did manage to work some Andrew Lloyd Weber into the answer to a question about his injury, which seemed close enough. “I felt pretty good back when I got off the plane in July, and I feel pretty good now. It was a tough year, but I’m not the first person to go through this, so don’t cry for me, Argentina.”
After the jump, then, is the video of him getting off that plane and feeling pretty good, a video taken on a day long enough ago that the site I originally hosted the video on has disappeared completely. And here’s a lively cover of Don’t Cry For Me Argentina, if you want to play it in the background while you watch.
