Currently, I keep in mind when I resembled 5 years old and also someone flipped me off in front of my house. I had no suggestion what that suggested, I simply presumed that it was an additional way to wave. I entered my home to reveal my mommy my new wave and also I was fractured upside the head with a wood spoon.
I realized that the middle finger was a poor thing and didn’t turn anybody off once again, before her anyway. As I grew older, WWF Fumbling was ending up being bigger as well as bigger; Hunk Hogan, Andre the Giant, Ultimate Warrior, the checklist continues.
I saw someone get hit with a chair one time as well as it looked like it injured but he got right back up. So I stated, “Let’s give this a shot.” Among my friends strike me with a chair as well as divine crap it hurt like heck. The terrifying part is I got the weakest child I recognized to strike me with the chair. I can only imagine how much pain I would have been in if my solid friends would have assisted.
As I got older, I recognized that I would not imitate whatever I saw on TELEVISION. We aren’t discussing seeing animes and also claiming if Wiley E. Coyote falls off a cliff and springs back up I can do it as well. I understood those cartoons weren’t genuine as well as knew I wasn’t an idiot.
I’m discussing seeing flicks and enjoying guys race bikes as well as do feats as well as race cars at like 150 miles an hour and after that when the cops come; they are so slick the cops have no chance to capture them. Currently going back approximately a few sentences back, I defined I wasn’t a bonehead. I recognize if I attempted any of those stunts or methods they do, I would either kill myself or wind up behind bars.
So why in god’s green earth do several of these NFL professional athletes think they can? If you are a professional football gamer does that imply you are above the law and also can cheat fatality? Those are super hero capacities if I keep in mind correctly. Or is it that you can do no incorrect reason you aren’t the “ordinary” Joe? I have no concept reason I am not a professional athlete. Who knows what is going through these man’s skulls. Well, we have a few examples of what occurs when NFL gamers view motion pictures and also try the stunts:
Kellen Winslow Jr, TE, Cleveland Browns
Movie: Torque, cycle stunt video clips, etc.
Simply in case you needed to know about the flick Torque, it has to do with bike auto racing primarily and tons and also tons of special results are made use of in it. I have actually driven motorbikes and they are blast. Using the very little amount of experience on the bike, I was still able to find out that the majority of the flick had some practical stunts. They were fun to view but even the ones that weren’t “boosted” by a computer I understood I had no chance in heck of even coming close to doing them. Once again, I am not a bonehead.
So with that said being said by an “ordinary” Joe, why would a person as skilled and also rich and sports as Winslow believe he can? Am I calling him a pinhead? Not at all. All I am wondering is why does he assume he can do it? He was in a parking area trying to do methods and also ends up collapsing his bike and also injures his knee and is out for the year.
Why would certainly you also try those feats? It just doesn’t make any type of sense from the winner of its fan-made commercial contest. You are making numerous bucks for one factor and that is playing football so why would you do something that would certainly threaten your occupation? Leave the feats to the expert stunt men.
Quintin Williams, DB, Miami Dolphins
Film: Fast and the Furious, 2 Quick 2 Angry
Video Games: Need for Speed, Midnight Club, Juiced, and so on.
Currently when it involves automobile racing, not only are there films available to enjoy, there are additionally video games to play. They are all based on the very same concept primarily; race automobiles to generate income and stay away from the police. Have I road competed prior to? No. Have I driven an auto really quickly before? Yet certainly, that hasn’t.
What I’m trying to access below exists is a difference in between driving your car genuine quick as well as road racing. Both are dangerous yet there is a little bit extra danger in road racing. Have I played those computer games mentioned above? Yes I have as well as I’ll also confess that I possess one of them.
I have a blast playing them and also yeah I have a kick ass auto that can do speeds of over 200mph. Once more, I recognize I am not an idiot. I comprehend that video games as well as reality don’t compare. I recognize what I can do in computer game I can’t perform in real life. Yet not to Quintin Williams of course since he is a football player. He was caught road competing recently around Dolphin Stadium at rates covering 110mph.
Again, am I calling him a pinhead? No, yet I will certainly call him a pinhead reason he was drunk while he was road auto racing. I’ll admit that I’ve driven my tricked out Porsche drunk off my butt however I was in the comfort of my own home playing video games.
Williams was doing something that could of have actually cost him his life or the life of an additional individual due to the fact that he was road auto racing and also he was intoxicated. He was a professional football gamer making millions but not any longer create a day after his arrest, the Dolphins launched him.
The belief that NFL football gamers have that they can do anything happens constantly. If just does not connect to films and also computer game though. It goes means past that with medications and also assault as well as prison time and also much more. Occasionally it obtains a little carried away as well as nowadays we are seeing more and more sports figures in the information for adverse acts off the field than excellent use the field.
Both these tales of Winslow and Williams have bad ends that prove it matters not if you are an “typical” Joe or a stud football player in the NFL, what you see on TV isn’t constantly for you. There is a factor reveals put a “Do Not Try This At Home” stamp at the beginning of their shows. It should not matter that you are or what you do, stick to what you are proficient at and also do not be a moron!
