Football Is Bad For Your Nuts

I re-watched the second half of the game this evening and forgot just how many times Chicago had to put the game away. The Bears had chances for two inteceptions that were squandered and Bears receivers had perfect passes fly through their hands. But the biggest break the Bucs got was the personal foul penalty on Charles Tillman after he flew into a pileup late and then got into a scrap with Michael Clayton.
At the time, the game announcers were watching the replay and saw that the bottom portion of that pileup was made up of Jeremy Trueblood throwing wild punches at Adewale Ogunleye. “Oh, Trueblood should have been penalized for that,” they said. Not so fast.
“One thing I don’t stand for is somebody grabbing you in your genitals,” he said. “I don’t know who it was, but whoever was beneath me paid the price.”
I’ll tell you who it was, Jeremy. It was #93, Ogunleye. Trueblood rolled on top of Ogunleye during the play. Ogunleye’s hand is lost from sight in between Trueblood’s legs for about one second, and immediately after that Trueblood starts swinging. Trueblood is intense and a hothead, but I seriously doubt that the timing is a coincidence. You hear about it all the time; you don’t want to be in the middle of a pileup because that kind of shit happens. I don’t blame Trueblood one bit for pounding the nearest blue helmet with his fist after getting his junk crushed. If you’re that interested in grabbing balls, be a pitcher. I think that’s all they do on the mound. In conclusion, fuck the Bears.
