Because it’s Monday and there’s not a whole lot going on with the Redskins ( unless you wanted five things to watch for at the upcoming OTAs ), I thought it’d be kind of me to post the near murder that occurred last night at the Billboard Music Awards.I didn’t start watching the telecast until around the part when the award for ‘Best Male Rapper’ was announced. In a category that included only one actual rapper ( Kanye ), that guy Macklemore won the award.
It was time to turn it off.
But, thanks to some savvy producers and good timing, Taylor Swift performed her hit song ’22′ for the first time on live television and your boy was hooked for the rest of the night.
Good thing I stay tuned, though, or else I would’ve missed Miguel attempting to jump over a crowd of people and then failing miserably by kicking one fan in the face, and landing on another’s entire cranium.
Take a look at the clip here ( s/o Terry_McFly ):
And now, the breakdown.
Here, Miguel begins his ascent, likely realizing at the peak of his leap that he’s bound to land a bit short of the stage.
Meanwhile, the crowd raves before Miguel’s sleek frame and graceful falsetto.
From a distance, you can see a dark-haired blur of a head beneath Miguel’s right leg as his ass plants firmly to the stage.
Momentum, gravity and body weight combine to make this one helluva blow to the innocent women’s neck and head.
It’s not until this shot that you get a glimpse of what really happened.
Not only does Miguel pull a Hulk Hogan and leg-drop the one fan from the top turnbuckle, but he also kicks another female square in the jaw with his left foot.
Make note of the crafty connector line ( shown in red ) between both Miguel’s left boot and fan No. 2′s head/face.
“Did I just do what I think I just did?” — Miguel
But guys, this is show business. And by God, the show must go on!
Miguel continues to serenade the thousands of others in attendance who weren’t treated like amateur pro wrestlers, while poor fan No. 1 and poor fan No. 2 try to recall where the are, why their ears are bleeding and why no one is around to help them escape their current state of dilirium.
Just another typical case of fans-that-sit-too-close-to-the-stage-and-have-no-thought-of-consequences-suffered-when-random-entertainer-doesn’t-calculate-a-ridiculous-crowd-jump.
