Kirk Cousins has interesting dodgeball form

What would Patches O’Houlihan say?

NFL: Minnesota Vikings-Minicamp Brad Rempel-USA TODAY Sports

Legendary dodgeball player Patches O’Houlihan told us that the sport of dodgeball centered around the Five D’s. . .dodge, duck, dip, dive, and dodge. (Dodging is pretty important. Hence the name.) At his annual football camp last week, new Minnesota Vikings quarterback Kirk Cousins showed that he doesn’t quite have all of those down yet, but he had success in any case.

See, for part of the camp that Cousins ran last week in Holland, Michigan, apparently one of the things that the 350 campers in attendance engaged in was a game of dodgeball. Cousins got the festivities started and. . .well, here’s what happened.

Well, it appears as though he has the “dive” part down, and I guess you could say he’s got the “dodge” part figured out, too. His low crawl form wasn’t terribly pretty, but I guess it was effective since he didn’t actually get hit or anything.

With the extra money that he has from his new contract, maybe Cousins could invest in a Globo Gym franchise and see if he can’t step up his dodgeball game in time for next year’s camp.
