“I’m very honored to have this opportunity to lead such a well respected organization, after years of hard work and dedication,” Glennon reported to members of the press, after the announcement was made.
This will mark the first time that the oldest of the Glennon brothers will take meaningful starting snaps at this Parks and Rec sponsored match.
Sources confirmed that Glennon will get paid in free t-shirts for the team and a 10% discount at Paunch Burgers within the Muncie town limits.
When asked about his brother’s promotion to starting quarterback within the Tampa Bay Buccaneers organization, Sean quickly pointed out it was his tutelage which led to Mike’s success in the NFL.
“I took some time off after college to really work with my little brother. That’s why you didn’t see me making it big in the NFL. It’s all about sacrifice, you know.”

Mike Glennon was unavailable for comment, but we were able to speak directly with a representative from the Muncie Parks and Rec department.
“Sean’s been after us for years to let him be ‘starting quarterback.’ Normally we don’t bother with those things in flag football, but eventually we got tired of him harpin on us about it, so we just let him have it. Plus, he agreed to clean up the litter in the parks, so it’s a win-win for us.”
When it was pointed out that Sean’s first game would coincide with his brother’s debut as an NFL quarterback on live television, Sean stated “I don’t need to watch his game. He’s a Glennon–I know he’ll succeed.”
