Bruce Smith clip on TNT Sports - anyone remember this?

Recommended Posts

So, if he was really dehydrated from the flu, why was he doing a meaningless television interview ?

From these posts, looks like a few people actually believe it too. 

I've read through some of the posts regarding the potential seriousness of the situation, but I'm pretty sure the host could smell the booze from a mile away. Made me laugh, but to each their own. I understand where they're coming from; just don't share their perspective.

Exactly, getting drunk before going on tv and drinking way more than you can handle seems more logical than showing up the flu.

Didnt Bruce once get a DWI because police found him pulled out in his car passed out drunk?

That guy didnt try to help him, he just watched him fall and kept going.  I do remember this....vaguely.  I think he was nervous.

No idea why people still make fun of this.  Passing out standing up, for any reason, is no laughing matter.  Anything can happen when your head falls to the floor from 6+ feet up.  Wasn't funny then, still ain't funny.

 

Geezus, lighten up...if he had injured himself it would be different...but he didn't.

"Next up, don't laugh at a player's foolish mistake, it may have taken real food off his children's plates!!!!"

"Don't laugh when a QB throws an interception, he would have donated money to charity!!!!!"

Sadly, I remember Bruce's fall vividly.  Not his finest moment.  

 

Once when I was a young lieutenant in Korea, I did something similar.  Up most of the night doing unspeakable things.  Next day we were listening to some lecture in the motor pool and I fell asleep standing up.  I awakened as a I was falling and desperately grabbed onto the guy next to me - who happened to be a major.  He was not even slightly amused when I dragged him down with me.  "Lieutenant, what the hell are you doing?!?!"  Wasn't much I could say in the way of an explanation.  

Kunsan or Osan? those bases got the best of a lot of young enlisted and officers!

I’m sorry.  The most memorable thing about that clip is Alberts repeating ‘Flutie start of the season’ as Bruce is laying there.  Even if you think Bruce fell because he’s wasted, you don’t keep rambling and stumbling over your lines like a malfunctioning cyborg.  You either show some concern or you show disgust that he’s a drunken mess.

Camp Casey, 1988.  Spent the prior evening down range in TDC.  

 

I did have some adventures in Osan on another occasion though.  You?

I vividly recall this.

 

This happens frequently in the military when people lock their knees while standing at attention. 

 

At the time, the team doc made clear he had the flu and was dehydrated.  Could have been cover but having seen Bruce in person many times, I believed him. 

 

Thurman? Not so much. Saw him verbally b*tch slap two kids looking for autographs and my respect instantly fell. That was at Bruce’s gold tournament in Virginia. Andre was with him and said, “Come on, man.”

Yeah.  Locked knees and improper breathing can lead to fainting.  It's why you see chorus singers faint sometimes.  Alcohol increases heart rate and blood pressure too.

I've seen plenty of guys go down from parade rest or the position of attention just like that, with zero substances involved. A few of them busted the backs of their heads open on the parade deck. 

 

Never, ever, stand with your knees locked.

Hard to be sarcastic in a post - he was known to drink.

Yea, love the guy. Even had a couple of drinks with him back in the day. Really nice and personable, to me at least. He saw me wearing a pair of his sneakers, thanked me and bought me a drink the 1st time. Ran into him a 2nd time, he remembered and bought me another, even though I offered this time. Obviously, if he had hurt himself during the fall, not so funny.
