For many NFL players, the start of the offseason is one gigantic party. They eat and drink whatever they want and give their bodies a much-needed break from the brutal pounding during the regular season. Los Angeles Rams running back Todd Gurley appears to have a head start on the competition.
Despite his team not making the playoffs after playing in the Super Bowl last year, Gurley isn’t sitting around the house sulking. No, he’s out and about these days, and he was seen at the Staples Center on Wednesday night for an NHL game between the Los Angeles Kings and Dallas Stars.
Joined by Los Angeles Dodgers shortstop Gavin Lux and rapper YG, Gurley was even beer chugging on the jumbotron. Needless to say, the crowd loved it.
Rams’ Todd Gurley Chugs Beers at L.A. Kings Game
This isn’t the first time NFL players have been spotted chugging beer at sporting events. Green Bay Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers and offensive lineman David Bakhtiari did a beer chugging competition last year at an NBA game.
Even Detroit Lions quarterback Matthew Stafford and New England Patriots quarterback Tom Brady have joined the party at one point.
Todd Gurley isn’t the greatest beer chugger on the planet, but give him some credit. He didn’t stop until it was all finished. At least he put on a better performance than Rodgers during his chug off.
It’s not ideal to watch the Seattle Seahawks and San Francisco 49ers — two division rivals of the LA Rams — still in the playoffs, but Gurley is definitely making the most of the situation.
After he was seen partying at a hockey game, it’s probably safe to say this is not the last of the shenanigans for Gurley in the coming months because nothing screams offseason quite like an ice cold beer and DMX.
