Philadelphia, PA – Despite news coming out of the weekend that free agent Frank Gore would sign a three year deal to play for the Philadelphia Eagles, reports started to leak onto the internet yesterday that the running back was hesitating about his decision and was now leaning towards playing for Indianapolis.
Gore confirmed those hesitancies after taking a call with CT reporters. The 31-year-old running back told the CT that he would never play in the same city as that “scary ass museum” and it would “give me nightmares for years knowing it was there.”
“Nah man, I’m not playing in that city with that weird mummy museum, no way. Frank’s no dummy. You’re telling me those skeletons don’t come alive at night and roam the streets of Philadelphia? I’ve seen those Night at the Museum movies, I know what goes on in those places.”
When asked how that would be possible, Gore reportedly said “skeleton powers.”
The seemingly stable and mature athlete proclaimed he wouldn’t take that chance and was going to play for Indianapolis.
“I heard they have like a whole room of skulls and an entire room filled with little dead babies in glass jars. No way I’m taking the chance of going there and having one of them open their cold, black eyes, locking their vision on me to put a hex on me or something, no way.”
When told he wouldn’t have to visit the museum during his tenure in the city, Gore responded that simply being in the same city as the museum was enough.
A Mütter Museum representative, when reached for comment, would not confirm or deny reports that the museum’s skeletons came alive at night to feast on the flesh of the living.
