Steve Young bit the head off a raw fish because NFL pregame shows exist

New, comments

I’m pretty sure that wasn’t a Falcon.

NFL: New York Jets at Arizona Cardinals Mark J. Rebilas-USA TODAY Sports

Former San Francisco 49ers quarterback Steve Young is one of the more entertaining broadcasters around, as far as I’m concerned. I enjoy listening to his commentary and of the little sports radio I engage in, I like to hear Young’s interviews.

I’m ... really not sure what happened prior to Monday Night Football between the Seattle Seahawks and the Atlanta Falcons, but the game is at CenturyLink Field, and apparently everyone in Seattle has to love fish. It’s just a rule. You can go to jail if you don’t like fish.

And because NFL pregame shows are getting more and more ridiculous by the day, Young was confronted with a raw fish and, for the cameras, bit the dang thing’s head off.

The guy next to him first says “I’m a Seahawk, I eat Falcons for breakfast,” which is a bit odd because he proceeded to bite the head off a fish, which is definitely not a falcon. Somebody should tell him. I think that man thinks he catches Falcons from the ocean? It’s unclear.

I’m not sure if it was tasty or if Young immediately regrets his decision, but well ... that’s where he’s at and where we’re at right now. What will he bite the head off next?
