​Once Dalton hit the podium for postgame comments, the comment had spread and a reporter asked the quarterback what he thought about Watt’s Christmas Story-inspired wordplay. It turns out he did not think very highly of it.

This seems like an extreme reaction to a kind-of lame joke, but you have to take into account Dalton is probably pretty mad about finally losing a game, and likely has a sore spot about A Christmas Story after being compared to Farkus his whole life.
