Niles Paul Hates Roller Coasters

Posted by Andrew Walker on June 5, 2012 – 2:22 pm

He has no reservations about going across the middle against the NFL’s beastiest of linebackers and safeties, but there’s something about a roller coaster that makes Redskins’ tight end Niles Paul cringe.

Paul was one of several Redskins players who joined the team’s 80th Anniversary Thank You Tour Saturday afternoon at Busch Gardens in Williamsburg, Va.

Before the team sat down for autographs, the amusement park allowed 20 Redskins players, cheerleaders and team officials to try out its newest roller coaster, the Verbolten.

Paul shared his seat with Redskins.com TV host Amanda Mitchell, who seemed more than happy to go on the ride. Paul, meanwhile, looked as if he was about to get several cavities filled at the dentist.

This attitude is no more apparent than in the photo above, provided by Busch Gardens to the players. Mitchell is having the time of her life; Paul, meanwhile, can’t even bear to look at what’s going on ahead of him.

He tweeted this after the ordeal:

By the way, I took this photo below before the ride began. Though Paul’s face is blurry, you can see he’s already holding on for dear life:

I actually don’t blame Paul one bit. I’m not a huge fan of roller coasters myself, and that first time on a ride can be pretty nerve-wracking.

Redskins players will have a second opportunity in a week to ride roller coasters on Saturday, when the 80th Anniversary Thank You Tour takes the team to Kings Dominion in Richmond, Va.

It’s unknown whether Paul will participate again for the Redskins, but if he does, you can bet he’ll probably sit out the roller coaster session this time around.
