If you’re pulling air from the atmosphere, you have or had parents or guardians. If you have siblings, you share those parents and guardians. If your parents and guardians are anything like my parents, you’ve been called the wrong name in stories and scoldings.
Apparently Jay Gruden has never had this issue.
In Part Three of an exclusive interview with Gruden at the 2014 NFL Scouting Combine, Larry Michael asked Gruden, “Does anyone ever call you Jon?”
“No, I’m much better looking than Jon,” Gruden said of his older brother. Michael agreed Jay Gruden had much better hair, then asked the Redskins head coach to explain the run of “J” names in his family.
“There’s no reason for it,” Gruden said. “Just nothing really sounds good with Gruden, so we kind of kept using the same names over and over again.”
The coach spoke about running his staff, his favorite players growing up and the leadership qualities he sees in Robert Griffin III.
