Playing football in a -25 degree wind chill is not great for your skin.
Just ask Kam Chancellor.
Chancellor, a safety for the Seattle Seahawks, recently posted a video on his Instagram showing off his gnarly, frost-bitten, cracked fingers. According to Chancellor, they’ve been that way since the Seahawks’ playoff match-up against the Vikings in Minnesota, over three weeks ago.
The Seahawks’ prevailed by a score of 10-9 in the coldest home game in Vikings’ history. Chancellor racked up three tackles and a crucial forced fumble, despite the fact that his fingers felt like popsicles.
Props to both teams for battling through those bone-chilling conditions. I’m gonna go turn up my thermostat.
