How About ESPN’s Chris Fowler Almost Dying At The Pinstripes Bowl


The most dramatic play of the Pinstripe Bowl apparently didn’t happen on the field. Perhaps more surprisingly, it was made by player who hasn’t appeared in a college football game since the 2000 season.

ESPN’s Chris Fowler tweeted that his partner in the broadcast booth, former Florida quarterback Jesse Palmer, saved his life with the Heimlich maneuver during halftime of the college football bowl game in New York City. Fowler and Palmer were at Yankee Stadium on Saturday calling the game between Notre Dame and Rutgers.

Well I’m going to tell you one thing right now.. when going up against a dry chicken sandwich, there isn’t a guarantee that you won’t choke to death.   It’s the risks you take, day in and day out.. whether you’re in the comfort of your own home or at the (Deathtrap) Pinstripes Bowl. Chris Fowler just realized that at halftime yesterday.  Lucky he had Jesse Palmer standing by, his knight in shining armor.
