If you were watching the FOX telecast of Sunday’s Redskins-Eagles game, then you might’ve seen their cameras catching Redskins linebacker London Fletcher tossing his cookies on the sideline.
Whether the footage was on purpose or just a stroke of bad timing, Fletcher said after the game that he wasn’t ill or anything.
No — that was just London being London.
“My stomach is notorious around here on game day,” Fletcher said with a laugh after the Redskins’ 27-20 victory. “It’s hard for me to keep anything down.”
Fletcher got over the nerves and turned in another terrific performance in his 239th consecutive game played, as he had nine tackles, a pass defended and an interception — his fifth of the season.
“It’s a tough life; tough game,” Fletcher said. “But, nah, I’m not sick. That’s just every week for me.”
This says to me that, at 37, London Fletcher still gets as amped up for a football game as he did during his rookie season with the St. Louis Rams in 1998.
So, if his passionate pregame speeches and his consecutive games played streak weren’t enough from you, now you know exactly how much London Fletcher cares about the game of football.
And, unfortunately, you’ll probably have that image stuck in your head for a while.
