Flip-flop throwing and pending nuptials

I just love this note from Mike Reiss on the ESPN Patriots blog:

The Titans will start rookie quarterback Rusty Smith, a sixth-round draft choice out of Florida Atlantic, today in Houston. Bill Belichick privately worked out Smith before the draft, and it just so happened the workout was one day before Smith’s wedding. Smith’s groomsmen were his receivers at the workout and Belichick was firing his flip-flops at Smith in an attempt to distract him. Classic.

Sometimes a few simple sentences can offer so much by way of story and characterization.
