The Last Time An Opposing Player Did The Lambeau Leap
As we mentioned yesterday, Cincinnati Bengals receiver Chad Ochocinco wants to do the Lambeau Leap when he comes to town this Sunday. Well, maybe Ochocinco had better think again.
The last opposing player to try a Lambeau Leap wasn’t received so warmly.
His name was Fred Smoot. He played cornerback for the Minnesota Vikings.
After picking off a Brett Favre pass during a late-season Thursday night game in the 2007 season, Smoot took it to the house. After a brief pause to kneel down, Smoot decided to try a Lambeau Leap.
Smoot was rejected like Kareem Abdul Jabbar blocking a shot by Danny Ainge.
I suspect Ochocinco would get rejected in a similar manner, but our readers had some other interesting suggestions yesterday. Some of the more humorous ones involved the ball sack – and not the ball sack they carry the footballs around in.
You won’t see it until the end of this video, but take a look at Fred Smoot getting the rejection. Any additional suggestions on what should happen to Ochocinco are welcome, but I think we have anything related to balls covered.
