Sammie Stroughter Scared of Carolina Panthers Punt

Thankfully for the world nothing came of the Cold War, but we should be relieved that we were left with the lessons that came from the tension. When it came to the Panthers and Buccaneers it was the grade school advice to 'duck and cover' that was hastily observed by Sammie Stroughter, when a dangerous punt came entirely too close to his personal bubble.

Who are we to judge? Under the spotlight of the NFL and all the pressure in the world on your shoulders who can tell the difference between "It's coming right for me!" and "Oh, it's about twenty yards to my left". To this end Stroughter did his job to a tee, and as an aside won a role in the Tampa Bay repertory theater's production of 'Thriller'.
