I love when football players get hit. That’s why I have a Bob Sanders jersey. I can’t stand watching athletes get injured, yet I love when they get jacked up. Go figure.
Watching the Colts beat Houston this past Sunday, especially when Sage Rosenfels begins to weep after he throws that last interception, reminded me of when Marlin Jackson gave him a helicopter ride earlier in the season. I feel I owe the Colts an homage of various football hits because of this.
Football to the groin
Football to the head
Helmet to the head:
(happens at :25)
Offense to the kicker
(happens at 1:10)
Kicker to the offense
Defense to the offense:
And finally, some great Colts-specific hits that we’ve all seen before but are worth revisiting as we approach the latter part of the NFL season:
Antoine Bethea vs. Falcons:
Bob Sanders vs Jaguars:
Darrel Reid vs. Chris Henry:
(best hit ever)
Rare clip from 1970 of Tony Dungy tackling someone so hard that both of their shoes fly off:
HOLY COW! Those videos are hilarious!! I think I like the 2nd one the best- I cracked up!
Wouldn’t the football players be scared for their lives every single game? Especially the one with Darryl Reid. Did he get in trouble for head butting him?
That last video of the cheerleader getting hit made me think of one of the ghetto BroadRipple HS pep rallys that we’d have…one time a girl got hit smack in the back of her head with a bagel. Someone just randomly threw it. It was hilarious.
Josh said that one time at a ghetto Tech basketball game or pep rally, one of the cheerleaders (who happened to be the only white one on the squad) got smacked right in the head with a basketball and the whole stadium went crazy. Haha. Ahhhhh the days of IPS.
