"Free safety advice" from Earl Thomas

Earl Thomas is hands down one of the most intense football players—heck, people—you will ever meet, but that doesn’t mean the Seahawks safety doesn’t have a sense of humor too.

Thanks to the folks at Sports Illustrated’s Extra Mustard blog, we get a glimpse of Thomas’ lighter side, when he hits the streets to offer “free safety advice” to people at the Pike Place Market. Get it? Free safety advice, from a free safety? Puns are fun, don’t you think?

Anyway, watch, enjoy, and have a good weekend. Oh, and don’t forget to change your email password from time to time.

My hope is that we get a sequel called “Strong safety advice” in which Kam Chancellor offers similar advice, but does so by sternly yelling things like “Look both ways before crossing the street, fool!”
