Portis guzzled Hennessy shots.
Blog King, Mass Appeal
LOS ANGELES — “Bottoms up, bottoms up. Aye, what’s in ya cup? Got a couple bottles but a couple ain’t enough.” Retired NFL running back Clinton Portis, 37, raised the eyebrows of many on Monday when he told Fox Sports analyst Kristine Leahy he downed Hennessy shots before each game. Clinton described the modus operandi as a “turn-up” before taking the field. “That’s true,” Clinton admitted when asked if he got lit before kickoff. “If you’re going out to have a good time, you pregame, right? It was a turn-up.”
“For me, it wasn’t like I was getting drunk. We took one shot.”
We? That means multiple players got faded.
During Monday’s appearance on “Fair Game with Kristine Leahy,” Clinton also confessed to guzzling Hennessy shots as a pain management mechanism which is hardly a surprise. After all, NFL players sacrifice both their lucidity and anatomy with each barbaric snap.
More than half experience immense difficulty getting out of bed on Mondays.
Look, Pro football is a bestial Gladiator sport that’s unsuitable for children. Yet, insouciant parents continue to haul their snotty-nosed brats to NFL games and/or let them descry the bloodbaths on national television. Hell, nowadays, children are featured in NFL commercials.
It’s an indelicate marketing stratagem that deserves opprobrium, not approbation.
Acquiescence ain’t enough either.
Nevertheless… to physically cope, some players digest torment resistant elixirs; most notably Toradol and codeine. Clinton, however, went the liquor route and it may have been sagacious healthwise. Side effects of Toradol includes gastrointestinal malaise, chronic bleeding and kidney failure.
Damn, sounds like Viagra minus blindness.
“I wasn’t taking Toradol [needle] shots,” he said.
“I wasn’t doing drugs. It was more of, instead of taking the [needle], I’m already in pain. I don’t know a football player that’s not in pain during the season. Especially when you’re a running back, and I’m getting 25 and 30 carries a game. For me, it was kind of like [take this Hennessy] shot, and I’m going out to play. Like this is gonna take pain away or the fear, or whatever it was.”
“After I took that shot, it was like okay, now it’s time to go do this instead of going to lay down and take a Toradol shot, which all of the sudden comes out [as being] hazardous to your health… I skipped that curve.”
As you can see, NFL players got it bad.
Many are reliant upon panacea and intoxicants.
Symptoms also include beating a woman’s ass.
Yes, football looks great on TV.
But, in real life, negroes are dropping like flies.
