PLAYERS: Nick Novak
TEAMS: San Diego Chargers

In what may be one of the better live broadcasting follies of the year, CBS focused in on/borderline stalked San Diego Chargers kicker, Nick Novak, as he prepared for a potential game winning kick in the final minutes. And by preparing, I mean taking a covert leak with the help of a wing-man/equipment trainer. While it's possible there is another explanation, the footage below seems to be pretty convincing.

Novak was not called upon to kick a field goal at the end of regulation but missed on a 50+ yard try in the waning moments of overtime, setting up the Broncos and you know who with great field possession and a chance to win the game. The Broncos and Tebow ended up capitalizing setting up an interesting blog chatter showdown as Tebow Mania will now have to fight for attention with Novak's whiz.

With guys not wanting to go back to the locker room (especially the kicker) and not wanting to just piss in their pants (probably hard to pass off as "sweat" when you're the kicker), Novak improvised. Frankly if it wasn't for CBS, I think he would of got away with it as he's low to the ground, people are looking elsewhere, and it seems other than his accomplice, nobody noticed. But alas, it didn't work.

I would imagine a lot of us can sympathize with the scenario although the ridiculous need to urinate is typically the problem of the elderly or drunken man. I guess that Gatorade was just too damn good to pass up and Novak was apprehensive about attempting a very important kick with the thought of desperately needing to pee on his mind.

The announcers never acknowledged the scene and I am guessing they just didn't see it as it's too funny to really ignore without even a chuckle. Probably for the best as who knows how you follow that up when millions are watching.

The million dollar question is he just unleashing the stream on the grass,dirt, or drain, or was he containing with a cup?
