If you’ve been following the Super Bowl coverage the last couple days, especially on Twitter, you’ve heard about the zip line. At this point you may even be sick of hearing about the zip line. As of Thursday only Peyton Manning and that Televisa Deportes reporter who showed up in that really tight red outfit are currently ahead of the zip line in volume of coverage. It was inevitable then that the sports networks would start sending their people out to ride the zip line. ESPN dispatched Trey Wingo, Cris Carter, Rachel Nichols and Merrill Hoge to experience the fun and as you can see from the video (after the jump)…it didn’t work out for Cris Carter. At all.
In defense of Carter…actually, I got nothing. There is no defense for that level of unmanliness. As far as I’m concerned Carter totally humiliated himself. When a dude named Trey Wingo has more nerve than you? Sorry but you might be a pansy. And it pains me to say this because I love Cris Carter. Another hero of my young adulthood is destroyed before my eyes. Congrats Cris Carter. You’re with Nic Cage and Bill Clinton on my “Will Never Believe in Again” list.
