The story of Charlie Whitehurst losing an arm wrestling match (and his number) to a punter is simply one of those things that is too good to be true. Charlie Whitehurst, newly signed to the Tennessee Titans and punter Brett Kern both shared the same number and the two decided to fabricate a story where they arm wrestled for the rights to the no. 6 jersey with Charlie losing. After they (and the rest of the world), got a good laugh out of the idea of someone who uses their leg for a living beating someone who uses their arm for a living in an arm wrestling match, Whitehurst came clean after seeing the reaction he got on the internet: “That was kind of my first real experience with that whole … Twitter stuff,” said Whitehurst, whose account says he joined Twitter in May of 2010. “Some of the guys later were telling me, `Hey, they’re killing you on there.’ I wasn’t really paying much attention to it. But that’s the first time I realized how modern media can happen.” Whitehurst went on to say that he thinks he could totally beat out Kern in an arm wrestling match but that attempting to do so would be irresponsible given his job as a professional quarterback. Sure Charlie, sure. Article found on: Next Impulse Sports
