Air travel is frustrating for plenty of reasons, and not far down on my list is having to pay for crappy, overpriced food because I was too lazy to pack something at home.
But where I see great disappointment, Los Angeles Ram Chris Long sees a great opportunity in the form of airport sushi.
On Wednesday, the defensive end shared his theory on why fish at the terminal may be superior to what's on the menu at your swanky "1 syllable sushi spot downtown."

Let's hear him out:

I only chose pizza because there was no sushi in this terminal. https://t.co/4sJIHfekzs— Chris Long (@JOEL9ONE) January 28, 2016
They have a directory touch screen board at Miami airport and it's giant. Giant font. I did search Sushi. People were staring. Embarrassing.— Chris Long (@JOEL9ONE) January 28, 2016
Said it before. Nothing wrong with airport sushi. It conceivably got there faster because the sushi plane probably is parked outside.— Chris Long (@JOEL9ONE) January 28, 2016
But you prefer your trendy dimly lit 1 syllable sushi spot downtown. Some guy with a grimy E350 cargo van had to take that from guess where?— Chris Long (@JOEL9ONE) January 28, 2016
Lemme draw you a diagram The ocean--->the boat---->the sushi plane--->the terminal---->grimy white van---->your favorite sushi joint— Chris Long (@JOEL9ONE) January 28, 2016
I probably went overboard with that rant— Chris Long (@JOEL9ONE) January 28, 2016
And now a couple questions: First, why does all the fish have to be transported in a "grimy white van" -- just the industry standard? And does ambiance mean nothing to you, Chris? I'm all for the airport beer to kill time before a flight, but how pleasant is it eating with a suitcase crammed at your feet under the table?
Regardless of whether airport sushi is your thing, you've got to applaud Long's passion for a good spicy tuna roll -- or whatever he prefers.
