Just when you thought Washington Redskins cornerback DeAngelo Hall's late-game tirade during Sunday's loss to the Pittsburgh Steelers couldn't get any sillier, it just did.
Tuesday, Hall found himself on the wrong side of a Jay Leno monologue.
"Did anybody catch the Redskins/Steelers game the other day? Cornerback DeAngelo Hall, he got into the ref's face, he got right in the ref's face and he received the harshest penalty I have ever seen in a game."
Leno then cuts to the offending footage, where some creative liberties were taken.
"There are two fouls on No. 23: unsportsmanlike conduct and a foul against an official," the official said. "Both 15-yard penalties will be enforced and the player will be ejected from the game. Also, he will banned from strip clubs for a period of six weeks, his Escalade will be taken away and he will be forced to drive a Prius. And until further notice, he will not be allowed to date a Kardashian. First down."
You couldn't be more wrong, Jay. It's running backs that date Kardashians, not cornerbacks. Geez.
Seriously, Hall's fate could be sealed soon. In an interview on SiriusXM NFL Radio, NFL commissioner Roger Goodell said that the league "[has] very strong rules in this area, and we’re going to enforce them aggressively.”
Ease up, Roger. I think Hall has been punished enough. He was a Jay Leno punchline.
