If the Denver Broncos win the Super Bowl, defensive back Mike Adams says he will literally walk home. And he seems completely serious.
The catch is that Adams makes his home about 12 miles away from the venue of Super Bowl XLVIII: MetLife Stadium in East Rutherford.
Here is what the Paterson, N.J. native told the Denver Post:
“If we win the Super Bowl, I’m going to keep my helmet and pads on and I’m walking home,” Adams said.
“After I get to the IHOP on Route 3, I’ll start hitchhiking,” he told the paper. “But they’d probably think I’m just some crazy person.”
Count me as one who would love to see Adams follow through on this. Walking a dozen miles with helmet and pads on is one thing. But doing so through the densely-populated streets of New Jersey is quite another.
