What your view of sports and life would be if you had too many concussions
Mrs. Dubsism is a fan of “The Walking Dead,” which before she exposed me to that show, I thought was a term to describe Jacksonville Jaguars. Little did I know that joke would lead to the discovery of real NFL zombies. From The Big Lead:
Hines Ward will appear on an episode of AMC’s The Walking Dead as a zombie. Ward played football at Georgia with Robert “IronE” Singleton who played T-Dog on the show. Ward said he enjoyed it, but apparently it was a harrowing experience.
“Just being in makeup preparing me for my role was cool. I actually scared myself when I looked in the mirror for the first time after.”
Now for the only question that matters – Who kills the bitch-ass zombie version of Hines Ward? I’m going with Carl.
Yeah, Carl is a psychotic little shit, but Darrell is a killing machine.
No wonder Pittsburgh didn’t want to re-sign him. That fucker’s scary!
Nah, Hines is just following in the lines of great ex-athlete/acting performances like Terry Bradshaw in “Hooper” and Roger Clemens in “Kingpin,” both Oscar-worthy by the way.
I get scared every time I see Hines on-set during NBC’s Sunday Night NFL coverage. Ward is a zombie…his analytical skills leave no doubt.
