The Time Odell Beckham Jr. Lost a Fight to an Inanimate Object
How was your day at work, honey? Not great mom.
Josh Norman kept picking on me, my QB looked lost, and I got beat up by a net.
We have all had that moment when our temper got the better of us. Maybe we punched or kicked a wall, threw a shoe, etc. Many of us have had that moment of rage backfire on us and the hurt is real. The ego is dented and we have to pick up the pieces and get on with our lives.
We all, however, don't go through this emotional journey on national television the way Odell Beckham Jr. did yesterday. To say the least, I was embarrassed for him. I will remember this the next time I feel myself getting heated and take pause. No one wants to get beat up. It's emasculating. But when a net made of string and cheap metal that weighs four lbs. kicks your ass, there is just no coming back from that.
The locker room is going to be an unsafe place for Odell for awhile. He will not be the first to take a cheap shot or break chops for the next year. If he does, he will be wide open to a world of hurt.
