Awkward ... 

This was in Paul Zimmerman's column on trash talking in football:

Harris Barton, the old 49ers tackle, told me about the first time he faced Reggie White. The Rev. White's conversation on the field wasn't exactly trash talk. It was more of a religious conversion attempt.

"First play he said, 'How ya doin', Harris,'" Barton said, "and I said, 'Fine.'

"Next play he said, 'God bless you, Harris,' and I said, 'Thank you.'

"Next play he said, 'Harris, have you thought about bringing Christ into your life?' and I said, 'Reggie, I'm Jewish.'

"After that he wouldn't talk to me anymore."
