Odell Beckham Jr. Losing A Fist Fight With A Field Goal Net Has To Be Unanimous Pick For Clip Of The Year
I am far from a Giants fan. In fact - regardless of my indifference towards the actual players on the team - I take much more joy in the Giants failures because of how insufferable the New York fanbase tends to be. That's why Odell Beckham Jr. catching a return punch - that was unquestionably a knock out blow to his pride - from a field goal net was such a glorious moment for me. Hell, it was a glorious moment for anyone that loves a hearty cackle. I don't have a huge problem with the potentially counterproductive amount of emotion he tends to show on and off the field, but I'll be damned if I am not going to laugh until I cry when those undisciplined outbursts bring tears to a professional athletes eyes. I respect Beckham as a competitor, but I appreciate him much more as a source of comedy. One handed catches that defy physics aren't exactly a dime-a-dozen, but short clips of athletes making themselves look stupid on camera are PRICELESS. Even the most die hard of Giants fans will chuckle at that video once their butts begin the post-penetration healing process, and that speaks to just how unbelievably hilarious it is. Doesn't even matter what you think about Odell Beckham's almost - dare I say - feminine displays of oversensitivity. If you can't appreciate when they produce 6 seconds of unrivaled viral entertainment then we will never...EVER...have a beer together. A grown ass man, who partakes in one of the most physically demanding sports on Earth, was armed with a helmet and STILL lost a fight to an inanimate object. It just doesn't get any better than that.
Fastest player to 3,000 receiving yards, quickest player to a gallon of sideline tears...
