Update 4-5-12 for folks who are coming from ESPN.
Hey, thanks for stopping by. Sorry, the video of Koy Detmer whipping out his cock and pretending to slap it against some lady is no longer extant. But I saw it when it happened, and saw the video again in the last couple of years, and I have to say, if that was a belt that Koy Detmer was pulling out, it was a belt he was keeping inside his pants. Which is not where I keep my belts, but who knows with those crazy Mormons, right?
So I don't have the video anymore, but we do have this reaction from way back in 1999. Mike Freeman in the New York Times wrote: (my emphasis, where needed)
Philadelphia Eagles quarterback Koy Detmer celebrated each of his three touchdown passes last week in, well, an unusual way. After every touchdown Detmer would, while standing, simulate what could only be seen as a sexual act. On the field. During the game. Detmer calls the move the ''whuppin' stick'' and says the action, which includes the swaying of his hips, is his way of dancing. Detmer's little post-touchdown show isn't original, actually. It's been done on some of the more raunchy music videos for years. Only now has the move made its way to the football field. A National Football League team official who saw Detmer's ''dance'' on a cable sports highlights show thought, as the broadcasters did, that the act was inappropriate.
So that happened, even if the video is scrubbed from the Internet, which says a lot about the power of the NFL to self-edit. But it fucking happened. and it was awesome. That is all.
UPDATE 11/9/07: Koy Detmer might be a little mentally ill.
As muumuuman previously reported, with much deserved derision, Koy Detmer is a Viking.
However, Muumuuman neglected to mention that sets up a reunion this Sunday of Koy Detmer and Brett Favre.
We've talked about this before, but let us quote Don Banks who described their first meeting in a rather G-Rated way.
If you've forgotten, Detmer reproduced a bizarre and semi-obscene gesture from that bastion of pop culture, Beavis and Butthead, and incorporated it into a little mid-field dance. Facing Favre and the Packers, Detmer executed a move that came to be called "the whip."
Now, here's how we described it:
I think it had to have been 4th quarter when this happened because the Detmer celebration (after throwing a TD) was one that no Detmer, and no QB, really, would make without thinking the game was in hand. Detmer "simulated" reaching into his pants, digging out his cock, and then slapping some chick's ass as he did her from behind. Stockton and his partner said something like, "Wow, that's some crazy dance from Detmer." No, it wasn't a dance. He was miming pulling out his cock, and slapping a chick on the ass! Favre gets back on the field, drives down the field, and chucks a TD pass. He, looking right at Detmer, apes the cock-whipping out dance. The TV people are oblivous: "Favre's mocking Detmer's crazy dance!"
For the love of God, let Brook Bollinger get injured so the Detmer/Favre simulating doggy-style pantomine can have a Part Deux. Please, please, please!
And now again, for posterity, is the video (we had it before, and it got removed, for some reason)
