Remember Nick Novak? He was with the Chiefs for a while during the “Herm Edwards Terrible Kicker Tour.”
You remember that, right? When the Chiefs got rid of a perfectly decent kicker in Lawrence Tynes in favor of drafting an untested rookie in Justin Medlock? It was one of the many brilliant moves made during the Herm Edwards era.
Anyway, Novak is now kicking in San Diego. During yesterday’s OT period, Novak had to pee. Considering the kicker is one of the most important people on your team in sudden death OT, it wouldn’t have been a good idea for Novak to take off for the locker room to empty his bladder. So he did what any red-blooded American kicker would do.
He took a knee, whipped it out and started to pee.
How would you like to have the job of the guy who had to stand there and hold that little towel while Novak pissed? You know this is going to be a big resume booster for this guy. This event will be an excellent bullet point right between “injected botox into Norv Turner’s freak-neck” and “changed Philip Rivers’ diaper.”
Oh yeah, later on in the OT, Novak missed a game-winning FG attempt.
Maybe he should have held it.
