I'm 64, so I wasn't surprised I didn't know what this new word means. I realize there are football players who use words that I don't use. So, I asked a number of reporters under the age of 30 in our LEX18 newsroom if they knew what "cozy" was. I struck out.
Dorian Baker's life has changed because he's now "cozy." For the senior wide out, this is a good thing.
"The difference between comfortable and cozy, you know what I'm saying, people get comfortable they get lackadaisical you know what I'm saying. But, when you are "cozy", your P's and Q's are sharp, but you are still handling your business, are you feeling me ? That's the difference between comfortable and cozy. and now I'm cozy."
Baker has made some great catches, and he's dropped some big passes. When you look at his talent, you see great potential that hasn't happened. He's so good with "cozy", he can tell if someone is faking it.
"See what it is, it's their demeanor, how they talk, how they act. If they don't speak with confidence and are comfortable, are you feeling me. They are speaking with confidence and they are comfortable, they are speaking with maturity. Someone like that, they are cozy. They are at a point in life where nothing can tough you. It's almost like they are invincible."
Sounds like "cozy" would make a terrific t-shirt.
