Nick Mangold’s sister confirms he won’t be in London

Rex Ryan’s powers of persuasion did not work on Nick Mangold, but his predictive powers proved correct.

Ryan offered to excuse the Jets center from training camp to watch his sister Holley compete as a weightlifter at the Summer Olympics in London. Mangold passed on the opportunity, but Ryan said last month that he would try to convince him to reconsider his decision not to go. Ryan said that with the caveat that he didn’t think he’d sway Mangold.

The Jets coach was right on the money. Holley Mangold said that her brother wasn’t swayed by another attempt to get him to cross the pond.

“He’s not going to come,” Holley Mangold told USA TODAY. “It’s not that he doesn’t want to go, (but) football is my brother’s life. You wouldn’t see me missing training or a big meet to watch one of his games. I know it’s different because it’s the Olympics. But (camp is) a big part of their season, especially with a new quarterback in town.”

As always, it comes back to Tebow.

    After his early P.R. debacle, Mangled decided to keep his mouth shut and let Holly do the heavy lifting this time.

    maybe Tebow will lead the team in a prayer so she can bring the Gold home

    5’10” 350 lbs and can lift more than her brother? Is she single?

    Looked her up, says she’s 5’8 374 lbs.

    I’ll give someone 10 bucks to take a handjob from her.

    I’d bet dollars to donuts he never had to stick up for her in school. Probably the other way around. Yikes!

    Hey Holley, the other linemen keep making fun of me in the locker room. Can you go throw the left tackle over a fence for me again? Thanks!

    Wow. Not supporting your family on a once-in-a-lifetime shot like the Olympics? Bad form, Mangold. Bad form.

    Kinda like if Nick was playing in the Super Bowl and his sister refused to attend because she had weight lifting practice that day.

    (As long as Nick’s a Jet she won’t have to worry about that scenario.)

    I just love that her last name is mangold. She lifts like a man, and because of that she might take the gold. Mangold.

    You could have Megan Fox and Giselle both willing and ready to fulfill my 3 way desires right afterward and my money says I still wouldn’t be able to get it up with that beast

    this guy needs slapped upside the head. no way is training camp more important than this once in a lifetime event. she has looked up to him her entire life and this is how he treats her?
    shameful!

    When she gets back, Holley will give Nick a bearhug to show there are no bad feelings.
