[Whatever else is going on in his head, it sounds like Reggie has the media's
number on this one... I wonder if he would have said "whom" in this title, too?

YOU WANT TO INTERVIEW WHO?
By Tom Silverstein
Pro Bowl defensive end Reggie White of the Green Bay Packers spoke
with the press Wednesday as his team prepared for Sunday's playoff
game against the Dallas Cowboys.
White, who injured his left elbow the week before the Packers'
Thanksgiving Day game against the Cowboys, has been wearing a
rubber sleeve on his arm for protection. But White said Wednesday
there is absolutely nothing wrong with his elbow and that he is
In fact, he insists it did not hurt him in the least the day of the
game, even though doctors originally predicted he would be out for
two to three weeks. He stands by his proclamation that God healed
his elbow in time for him to play.
"It's been fine," he said. "The last time we talked about it being
healed. It wasn't hurting. I think a lot of people still think my
arm is not well. And it is.
"I think some of the reason the media couldn't take me saying that
God healed me is because y'all can't interview God. If I would
have said a psychic or something, you would have interviewed him."
When he was asked what he thought God might say, White said,
"You've got to talk to him. You can set it up yourself."
