BRIAN BOSWORTH: HERO

BRIAN BOSWORTH

AOL Fanhouse found this item in a Canadian newspaper:

Former Oklahoma and Seattle Seahawks football player Brian Bosworth is being celebrated as a “hero” today. Bosworth rushed to the aid of a Canadian woman who had crashed her car into a ditch just outside of Winnipeg. Bosworth carried the woman to safety. The Winnipeg Free Press snapped this picture just after the accident:

 

“THE BOZ” TO THE RESCUE

Congrats! It only took 22 years since leaving college, but Bosworth finally did something right in his life. Bosworth was one of the most overhyped college football players in history at Oklahoma. He is still remembered for getting brutalized by Bo Jackson against the Raiders in a Monday Night Football game in 1987. Jackson sprinted for 221 yards in the game- much of it by LITERALLY running over Bosworth. It was one of the poorest individual defensive games in NFL history.

Injuries as well as incompetence led to Bosworth being out of the NFL after just three seasons. Many blamed his injuries on steroid use. Bosworth, along with Tony Mandarich, are often the first athletes that come to mind as overblown college players that succeeded mainly due to steroid use then failed at the next level.

After flopping in the NFL, Bosworth starred in the 1991 movie Stone Cold. That gave Bosworth the unique distinction of being named one of the 25 biggest flops in sports history AND making one of The 20 Worst Movies of All-Time.

However, Bosworth’s career  was not without entertainment value. Besides being punked by Bo Jackson, Bosworth was captured by tv cameras on the sidelines of the 1987 Orange Bowl. He was wearing a t-shirt that said, “National Communists Against Athletes” in honor of the NCAA which suspended him from the game after a positive steroid test.

Bosworth was also responsible for legendary Oklahoma football coach Barry Switzer getting axed. Bosworth’s biography described players freebasing cocaine on game days and firing machine guns from the Oklahoma football players dorm balcony. The school was eventually nailed with 20 violations by the NCAA and Switzer was forced to resign in disgrace.

    michael smith you are a jackass… a guy saves a life and you rip him for being a bad NFL football player. What does that have to do with being a good guy… for the record you could not play one down in the CFL never mind the NFL… Oh yeh the ‘ BOZ’ is the only player in college history to win the Dick Butcus award two years in a row….

    umm yea i agree with mike. you’re a DICKHEAD. and in that play against Bo Jackson, Brian had to come from ACROSS THE FIELD to make the play. bo jackson was running full steam and was hit FROM THE SIDE ON THE 1 YARD LINE by Bosworth, and Jackson’s momentum just carried them both over the goal line. anyone who knows ANYTHING about football or even PHYSICS knows that 9 times out of 10 the running back would’ve won that battle. and if Bosworth somehow HAD made the play, people would be talking about Bo Jackson being the flop. and ACTUALLY if you had TAKEN THE TIME TO WATCH THE GAME Bosworth had like 12 tackles, 2 sacks and a forced fumble in that game. which is a GREAT game for ANYBODY. and you dare to say “It was one of the poorest individual defensive games in NFL history.” Bosworth had NO HELP from anyone else on that defense or that team for that matter. and actually, the reason he had to retire was that injuries developed severe arthritis in his shoulders so he couldn’t pass the physical to play anymore. educate yourself dude and quit fucking rambling on about stuff you know NOTHING about!
