"You have to strike while the iron is hot," said Tyree, who hasn't caught an NFL pass since his "helmet catch" helped the Giants upset the Patriots in Super Bowl XLII. "I learned that here at Best Buy. If a new line of phones come out, you sell them fast before something newer comes out."
Tyree's failure to show for work on Monday disappointed his shift manager, Kenny Gregson, who said he is glad all of his employees don't quit to go celebrate their smallest athletic achievements.
"First of all, I highly doubt he's some Super Bowl hero from four years ago," said Gregson. "If he was, he'd still be playing in the NFL and definitely wouldn't be working here. Plus, he supposedly caught one pass on his head? Big deal. I caught two touchdown passes in freshman football in high school, yet I showed up for work today, didn't I? It's dedication like this that earned me shift manager for the closing crew."
