Professional football players usually earn game balls for spectacular plays. One time, Larry Izzo earned one from Bill Belichick by taking a poop on the sideline without anybody noticing.
“I guarantee that game ball is probably a more prized item for him than his Super Bowl rings,” Wes Welker told ESPN’s Dan LeBatard on a recent episode of Dan LeBatard Is Highly Questionable.
“It’s Izzo, it’s what the guy does!” Welker declares. “I’m telling you, the guy is phenomenal.”
Over the course of a highly entertaining interview with the ESPN2 host, Welker also explains the details of Tom Brady’s bathroom, how he’d like a do-over on the two Super Bowls he’s played in and how some people still struggle believing he plays football for a living.
Former Patriots linebacker Rosevelt Colvin also tweeted at @NESN to confirm the story as true.
See Welker’s claim for yourself in the video below, with the discussion of Izzo’s exploits starting around the 3:15 mark.
