The internet has melted my brain and is surely expediting the fall of humanity, but it has undoubtedly provided us ample amounts of bread and circuses in the meantime.
If there were ever an athlete to embody internet and meme culture (Jesus, what a lame sentence), it's Jameis Winston. Whether it be his suspension for shouting FHRITP in an FSU Cafeteria..
..or getting sacked by a ghost in the 2015 Rose Bowl, Jameis has provided countless memeable moments during his time in the public eye.
I won't make a low-hanging crab leg joke, but you knew Jameis was a different dude when he was out here eating Ws.
After spending 2020 on the bench following a historic 5,000 yard 33 TD, 30 INT campaign in 2019, Jameis' comeback was one of the better narratives going this season. Unfortunately, he suffered a nasty knee injury yesterday against his former team, the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, which ended his season.
Semi-miraculously, even with Trevor Siemian at the helm, the Saints were able to hold on to defeat the defending Super Bowl champion Bucs 36-27.
That was a massive win for the Saints; they're now only a half-game back in the division, so it's pretty understandable there were some good-ass vibes in the postgame locker room.
Now, I'm no knee-expert, but with a torn ACL, there are various reactions—some writhe in pain. Others like Tom Brady "walked" off the field after scumbag Bernard Pollard took out his left knee. Dejuan Blair played seven years in the NBA with no ACLs, but you'd think after tearing your ACL, Jameis would be taking it easy. Maybe even still be in the care of the team doctor?
He was out there celebrating with his teammates, dancing with crutches.
Dude's season just ended, and he's out here bopping like Dave Parker on a gimpy knee. Toradol is a hell of a drug. Who else other than MAYBE Gronk would ever do this? I love how the live stream cuts out immediately cut out because this probably never should've seen the light of day, but the damage (hilarious Jameis footage) was already done. There will never be another Jameis Winston. He truly is 1 of 1.
