Sokolsky on the Arts and Entertainment
A weekly program focusing on the arts and entertainment
Arts and Entertainment Editor Bob Sokolsky calls it “an event that had some viewers shaking with laughter, others wondering what could possibly happen next.”
It involved the recent NFL clash between the San Diego Chargers and the Denver Broncos. And especially involved San Diego kicker Nick Novak.
Most especially since everyone in the stadium as well as fans watching on TV knew Novak was to come into the game to attempt a tie-breaking field goal. But before that could happen the kicker had some urgent unfinished business to deal with. Teammates tried to conceal what was happening by placing a huge towel between him and the fans. Bur a TV camera was there to show the world what was taking place.
Sokolsky says Novak is not the first player to be caught in such a situation. But he may be the only one to have his big moment captured on network TV.
