Wes Welker confirms Larry Izzo once took a dump on the sidelines during Patriots game
Wes Welker had a hilarious interview on “Dan LeBatard is Highly Questionable” Wednesday, but the highlight was his confirmation that his former teammate Larry Izzo (pictured) once took a dump on the sidelines during a Patriots game.
LeBatard asked Welker to confirm a story told to him by former Dolphins linebacker Zach Thomas, who said former Patriots linebacker Larry Izzo once pooped on the sidelines during a Patriots game. What’s more, Izzo supposedly received a game ball from Bill Belichick for pulling off the amazing accomplishment.
“This is 100% true,” Welker said. “And Larry would be so mad at me if I said that this did not happen, because he takes ultimate pride in this whole deal.
“Of all the special teams tackles and Pro Bowls he’s made, I guarantee you that game ball is probably a more prized item for him than his Super Bowl rings,” Welker said.
We’ve seen plenty of other football players handle business on the sidelines during a game, but never has it been No. 2. That’s just crazy that he pulled it off.
The incident also raises several crucial questions, such as: How did he clean off afterward, and did he even bother to wipe?
In a somewhat ironic twist, Welker was doing the interview to promote his Depends adult diaper partnership. Maybe that’s what Izzo was wearing during the game.
Welker also told a funny story about his time with the Dolphins and how a neighbor in Miami once asked what he did for a living. After Welker told the neighbor he played for the Dolphins, the neighbor sized up the 5’9″ receiver, and said “no wonder we went 4-12 last year.”
Welker also described all the intricacies of Tom Brady’s amazing toilet.
The entire interview was fantastic, and extremely well done by LeBatard.
