Greg Jennings is Tired of Dudes Getting Too Handsy During His Lambeau Leaps

Michael Garcia - September 8, 2012

The Lambeau Leap has become legendary. If for some reason you don't know what that is, when a Green Bay Packer scores a touchdown, they leap into the front row of fans behind the end zone to celebrate. The move is credited to safety LeRoy Butler (on Wikipedia, I know), who did it in 1993. After that, wide receiver Robert Brooks made it a habit and it became a tradition.

For current WR Greg Jennings, the Leap comes with its hazards, mainly guys putting their hands all over him. It's one thing for fans to get excited, but Jennings told NBC Sports Radio that now he tries to be more selective about where he goes into the stands.

'I try to go away from the men because the men get a little grabby,' Jennings said.  'The women get grabby too but them men it's like come on, really, seriously?  I'm another guy.'

That's hilarious. Jennings seems to have forgotten that he and the other Packer players are like gods in Green Bay. It probably makes those fans' weeks if they get to be a part of a Lambeau Leap. That said, there's a helmet slap or a slap on the shoulder pads, and there's crossing the line. I mean, just look at that picture. Some of those guys look a little too excited.
