Folks in the United Kingdom got exposed to more than just American football on Sunday.
During the Giants’ win over the Green Bay Packers at Tottenham Hotspur Stadium on Sunday, New York cornerback Darnay Holmes needed to have a trainer work on him on the sidelines.
It wasn’t entirely clear what was happening, but a video shot by a spectator showed Holmes with his caboose partially exposed and the trainer vigorously targeting an area of his quad. But given the vantage point the video was shot from, you can understand why the clip went viral.
Apparently, the video made its way to Giants players’ feeds before they embarked on their transatlantic flight back home.
“Before we got on the plane to head back, I think Graham Gano showed me and was like ‘Dude what is this,” Giants safety Julian Love said Tuesday in his weekly appearance on “Tiki & Tierney.” “I was like oh no, and I knew that was instantly going to blow up. Like dang Darnay, you getting freaky on the sidelines? I don’t know what’s going on.”
Love was especially befuddled that Holmes didn’t have anything covering himself.
"That’s part of it too, I'm like why didn’t you block yourself?" Love said. "Usually when you have to do something that requires you to pull down your pants or something like that, you get covered. But he was just trying to get it done as quickly as possible apparently."
Love said that Holmes has had a good attitude about it and is getting a laugh out of the situation too.
That said, he might end up being a little more careful the next time he needs some attention on the sideline.
