This GIF surfaced on Buzzfeed today and I about lost my lunch laughing. There was some audio and video taken during a Kansas City Chiefs game that shows prominent safety Eric Berry shaking in his cleats at the sight of War Paint.
We all know that football players are among the toughest out there. You couldn’t pay me enough to go out there and get beat up as much as they do! Well, maybe you could, but that’s beside the point. I’ve talked about War Paint before, and having seen him in person, this horse is a true saint. I doubt he even swishes his tail at flies for fear of hurting them! So maybe that is what makes this so comical to me; this man is legitimately having a cow at the sight of War Paint!
Maybe Mr. Berry should get in touch with Eric Moore, who is an ex-football player turned eventer. Needless to say, I am the proud owner of an Eric Berry jersey, but now I will have to laugh a little every time I put it on.
Buzzfeed also posted another article with a video interview of Berry explaining why he harbors a fear of our favorite four legged friends.
