It’s tough being a professional football player for a variety of reasons. First of all, it’s hard to get into the league in the first place. Then once you’re actually in the NFL, you have to deal with earning playing time, performing to expectations, persevering through injuries, surviving bounties, aging gracefully and saving enough money to be able to retire without having to later play for some second-rate, illegitimate football league.
And of course there are also the wild animals that urinate on you.
If you believe New England Patriots wide receiver, Chad Ochocinco, that last bit is a very real and possible thing that actually happened to him this past Saturday. Via his Twitter:
Swear to lil 10 pound bearded baby Jesus I just got peed on by a real "Lion" I'm not lying either. And y'all wonder why I don't go out!!!!!
I never go out at night n the night I do I get peed on by a real "Lion" I feel honored, who can say they got peed on by a "Lion"
Yes, i'm at Voices for Children charity event n there's a real Lion here in the cage. Why would I lie? RT @larose03: Seriously a real Lion?
