Viral Redskins Videos: Sellers Riding Tubes

Ok, troops. We won't have Washington Post video for ya. We won't have WUSA or Comcast SportsyNet video for ya. What's the next best thing? Boating Life video!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! What NFL rule does that break? Stay tuned.

Weeks ago several blogs posted parts of this video series featuring Chris Samuels and Mike Sellers being flung about the frothy waves by various high-speed water devices, with the former, at least, laughing about what his employer might think, but in this month of dwindling video options, it's all I've got. And there's 17 parts, so this should take a while.

There's also a massive article from Boating Life Magazine, that includes non-moving-picture gems like this:

The ride turns bumpy. Then it gets downright hairy. The Triple Shot goes airborne ... and shakes the 700 pounds of cargo upon landing. "Nothing comes easy," Samuels said earlier about his Sunday gridiron battles. On his face is grit, determination ... ah, heck, it's fear. His eyes are the size of manhole covers. The tough guy is screaming. The tube and its passengers touch down one more time, skidding to a stop.

"You're a cream puff," the boy in the middle says to Samuels. No, he's not. To prove it, Samuels, still sitting, lifts the kid from the middle seat with those oven-mitt hands and throws him out the back as if tossing aside an empty Gatorade cup. He appears to be on his game. Or at least he's very much into the tube.

"You might need a giant shoehorn to get my butt out of here," he says.

Now all we need is for Jim Zorn to invent the Z-Horn.

Ummm, seriously man, stop bit**ing already. Although I don't agree with them either, rules is rules. Make the best of what you've got. You're a writer, not a video putter-upper. So, write.

Thats the most air Sellers has cut since he hurdled that linebacker last year.

Steinz, the people from the Internet called and said you can't use it anymore. Can you send your blogs to me typewritten via snail mail?

Seriously though, some great finds in Ashburn.
