Baldwin mystery penalty? A poop joke
Seattle wide receiver Doug Baldwin drew a penalty flag for unsportsmanlike conduct after catching a touchdown to put the Seahawks up two scores in the Super Bowl. Why? Something of a mystery to television viewers.
But it appears to have been a poop joke -- Baldwin apparently simlulated pulling down his pants over the football as if to go to the bathroom.
It was easy to miss on TV.
But this AP photo catches Baldwin in the act:
What a dumb penalty by Baldwin. Acted like he was taking a dump. Used ball as a prop.- Charean Williams (@NFLCharean) February 2, 2015
