My night with Bobby Hebert


[Clarification: Big Picture correspondent JMC was the lucky one spending the night with Hebert. I had a date with my right hand. – ZLS]

From the time his name was immortalized on Seinfeld, Bobby Hebert has been kind of a legend to us here at The Big Picture. In fact, we once made up a game at the summer camp where we worked called the Bobby Hebert Quarterback Challenge. Never in our wildest imagination did we ever think that we would some day get to spend an evening, shoot the shit, and have some beers with the great Bobby H. But last weekend, I did.

Now in respect for Mr. Hebert and his privacy I won’t divulge exactly how or why or where I had the chance to meet him, but I will say that the night involved a nice meal on Bobby and a hell of a good time.

Some things I learned about Bobby Hebert:

-He’s tall, but not giant. He could be a regular guy.
-He dips.
-Even though he dips, his teeth are really white.
-His accent is totally awesome.
-Not afraid to drop an f-bomb (or any other swear word).
-Can tell some great stories.
-When telling you great stories, he likes to get real close and tap you on the arm with the back of his hand again and again.
-He will always refill your beer when it’s empty.
-Although I didn’t get to see it first hand, apparently he’s a stud at beer pong.
-His ex-wife is a total MILF.
-Got promoted from doing just pre/post game radio to doing the weekly commuter show because somebody at the radio station died.


Some stories Bobby told:

-The one about the guy who played tackle, but after getting completely demoralized by Lawrence Taylor, moved to guard and never played tackle again. Here’s how it went: on the first play he tried to get a quick start and block LT off the play, but LT used a swim move and sacked Bobby. The next time he stayed back, LT saw he was on his heels, drove right into him, and dropped him onto Bobby’s legs. He was never the same.
-The one about Jack Del Rio getting traded because Jim Mora didn’t like him being too casual during a walk through.
-The one about going fishing with Deion Sanders. Apparently Deion is actually fairly down to Earth and a really good clubhouse guy. He would say “Hey Hebert, let’s go fishing.” And then they did.
-The one about getting sacked by Lawrence Taylor and how it hurt like shit. In fact, if I remember correctly he said that LT was the only guy he was ever genuinely scared of, because he had such a crazy look in his eye. He also said that a friend of his played with LT and told him stories about LT being all strung out and sleeping during practice, slumped over a blocking dummy, while the offense was on the field.
-The one about the guy who was hung like a clydesdale. Get this: apparently this guy’s wang wouldn’t fit in his jock, and if he had it going down his leg he couldn’t run. So he taped it to his hip, and one time he got hit in the side. He came off the field in agony, and everyone thought it was a hip pointer, until he said “I got my dick taped over here and it just got crushed.” By the way I almost choked and fell off my chair when he told this story I was laughing so hard. The best part might be that he said they met this guy’s wife at the team Christmas party and she was so tiny that they all wondered, “How can she take that?”


Best parts of the night:

-Seeing Bobby standing outside the restaurant dipping, then going back inside to check out the group of transsexuals that walked in after us.
-Hearing Bobby do his impression of Jim Mora saying “Playoffs?!?”
-Trying on his jersey.
-Hearing how excited he was that his son T-Bob (that’s right, T-Bob) plays for LSU. He even told us his jersey number so we could watch for him.
-Telling Bobby about how we named the Quarterback Challenge after him. He was stoked. And maybe even a little honored.
-Hearing a story from a family friend about when he was a kid and Bobby was still playing — one day the friend went over to the Hebert house and Bobby was on the treadmill and he said “Look at my calves! They’re as big as you!”
-Hearing him complain about how good the 49ers were, and how he could never beat them. If he had been in the AFC he could have gone to the Super Bowl.
-Telling Bobby that we will call into his show and rag on T-Bob if and when he gives up a sack. He loved it.
-All of it.

So Bobby, thanks for making our night. And good luck T-Bob, we’ll be watching for you.

  1. Hey man, I think I may have figured out while you don’t get much tail. You look like a turd.

  2. Did Hebert realize that you were going to blog about the night?

  3. Hold on. You will tell us every detail of the night, “but out of respect” you won’t say where or how you met him?

    Fair enough.

    I have to stop typing and go back to taping my schlong to my hip before work.

    Good post though.

  4. I masterbated to this post 67 times…

    My computer is covered in cum now.

  5. I can’t believe that you didn’t mention that Billy Joe Tolliver was your table’s busboy.

    Hebert rules.

  6. thanks anonymous. I appreciate your constructive criticism.

  7. Damn Zach, you have a freakin long nose

  8. stiles, that’s not zach, it’s me. zach’s better and (if possible) more jewish looking than me

  9. my nose is like twice as long as jmc’s, i’m like freakin’ pinnochio.

  10. All you jewish guys look the same

  11. I’m lucky that I get to listen to Bobby Hebert everyday on the evening commute. He’s not afraid to say what’s on his mind and he’s definitely one of the LEAST P/C people you’ll hear on the radio.

  12. How was the cum et tu fe?

  13. JMC, you look like my local Rabbi. Not sure if Zach out does you for most Jewish looking.

  14. Dude, this is fantastic. I wish we really got to know more players like this. Too bad the NFL today is one big corporate oil machine.

  15. Dude, if you’re really a fan. Why don’t you add the mySpace that me and my boy made for him? And yes, everyone from our hometown has that accent.

  16. A strung out LT seems even more scarier than a coked up one.

    I have a newfound respect for Bobby Hebert. Thanks
