A.J. Hawk grants fan’s wish for an NFL-style hit
It wasn’t quite Mike Curtis on a rowdy fan or Rodney Harrison on a nerdy blogger or even A.J. Hawk on a pass-catching touch football player standing too close to a pond, but the Packers linebacker gave a football fan the experience of absorbing a hit from an NFL player.
It happened at the American Century Celebrity Golf Championship in Lake Tahoe.
The fan declares himself to be a “Michigan man!” presumably to persuade Hawk, who played at Ohio State, into lowering the boom. Other fans goad Hawk into making the guy’s dreams come true.
And then Hawk does.
Hawk wasn’t even going half speed, but he delivered a solid wallop.
The lawsuit will likely be filed on Monday.
