MSN- Dallas Cowboys defensive end David Irving tweeted that he lost his nipple ring during the team’s training camp, and as a result, injured his nipple.
“It hurt so bad I just had to let the world know,” Irving told reporters after practice on Wednesday. “But (the nipple) didn’t completely tear through. It must have been loose and yanked the side out. Thank God it was loose.
“I guess I gross some people out,” Irving added of the nipple ring. “Pretty funny to see people’s reactions. I have no shame.”
Asked why he had a nipple ring in the first place, Irving responded, “The girls love it. That’s why I got it.”
Irving is set to serve a four-game suspension to start the 2017 campaign after failing a drug test.
You know, I generally just assume that all drug test-related suspensions are a result of recreational weed usage, but I think I'm inclined to believe that the defensive end that thought rocking a titty ring during NFL training camp was a good idea may be twisting up something a hell of a lot stronger. I can't speak to how difficult it is to remove and replace nipple accessories, but it's got to be more convenient than testing fate and having them inevitably ripped out of your chest during an entire summer's worth of clutching, grabbing, and battling for leverage with the massive paws of professional offensive linemen.
I'm not trying to question anyone's fetish or claim that I know more about the turn-ons and turn-offs of NFL groupies, but maybe it's best to pander to them strictly during the offseason. Or - oh, I don't know - at least tape up like a distance runner so your apparent pleasure spot doesn't end up responsible for an ungodly amount of pain? I'm far from an unorthodox jewelry expert, but I would imagine it's safer to put in your breast bling prior to physical interactions that don't occur with 300 pound men that are looking to use anything and everything to fling you to the ground.
