Lotta talk about poop lately with the unfounded allegations that Lamar Jackson had to relieve himself in the middle of last night's game against Cleveland. Some folks out there are saying that Lamar wasn't just playing the Browns, but he was taking them as well. Credit to me for being the first and only person to make a Browns/poop joke out of this situation.
However, the company line at the moment for Baltimore is that Lamar simply had a case of the cramps. Lamar is adamant that he didn't pull a "Paul Pierce", but he is still yet to admit that he didn't pull a Roberto Luongo either.
Game 5 of the 2007 Western Conference Semifinals. The Anaheim Ducks are up 3-1 in the series against the Vancouver Canucks, and the game goes to overtime. The season is on the line for Vancouver. The next goal could potentially send them directly to the golf course. Luckily for them, they had Roberto Luongo in net. He finished 2nd in Vezina voting that year only behind the great Martin Brodeur. With the season on the line, at least they could rely on having the best goaltender in the Western Conference between the pipes for them in OT. But instead of being between the pipes to start the overtime period, Roberto Luongo had to rush back to the locker room to clear his.
In comes Dany Sabourin to start the overtime for Vancouver. A goalie who Canucks' GM Dave Nonis probably forgot was even on the roster. He comes in and faces shots against Getzlaf, Perry and Pronger. He makes at least 3 or 4 huge saves, and buys just enough time for Bobby Lu to wipe his ass and head back out onto the ice.
Unfortunately, the Canucks ended up shitting themselves in the 2nd overtime period when Rob Niedermayer leveled the shit out of Jannick Hansen, and the puck landed on Scott Niedermayer's stick. Game, set, match.
Unfortunately, the shit break ended up being for nothing. But the moral of the story here is that everybody poops. Even if you're a starting NHL goaltender in overtime of a Stanley Cup Playoff elimination game. So maybe Lamar Jackson can quit being such a baby about this and admit that he had to dump.
