In Colorado, marijuana is legal. But Broncos players can’t smoke it. Farting also is legal. But Broncos players can’t do it in meetings, without paying a price.
Via Nicki Jhabvala of the Denver Post, linebacker Von Miller said teammates fine players for farting in meetings — and that Miller believes he has been fined the most for it.
“They can’t fine me if I get up and walk away,” Miller said. “It’s not healthy. I keep trying to tell them it’s not healthy if I just sit there and hold it in. Nobody in the world does that. I just do it more than the average person.”
If it makes Miller feel any better, in most gatherings of humans it’s generally frowned upon to lift a leg and let one rip. Surely, plenty of people do it anyway, but life beyond the walls of a football facility is hardly the fart fest Miller thinks it is.
Maybe Miller is the one who has it right, and it’s the rest of us who have it wrong.
