Found December 06, 2012 on The Last Angry Fan:
Especially when you do so with your bare forehead, as Mike Vrabel supposedly did before the Buckeyes game against Michigan last month. Former Patriots linebacker Vrabel, now an assistant with his alma mater Ohio State, was so pumped before the Big 10 rivalry match against the Wolverines on November 24 that he headbutted one of his players during pregame warmups.  Only problem was that while said player was wearing his helmet, Vrabel was not, and the end result was a nasty gash on the forehead that needed some stitches to close it up. The incident was nothing more than rumor and hearsay, until one of the guys from Eleven Warriors reached out to Vrabel’s wife Jen to confirm the story, and she went above and beyond by posting photographic evidence of the damage done to her hubby’s head on her Twitter account along with the following tweet… Sound advice from Mrs. Vrabel, although you’d expect a guy who’s been around football as much as Vrabel has would know better when it comes to helmets, headbutts and exposed heads, but apparently not.
