Premise of Video: Brandon Marshall was in the process of ripping the Colts defense for an NFL record 21 receptions. After a 5-yard TD catch, Marshall knew just who to give the ball to – Kristy Seidenstricker. She was wearing an orange Marshall jersey in the middle of all Colts blue. Then it happened. Water works.
Climax of Video: Marshall points to the woman and then throws the ball into the stands. In Green Bay it would have caused a riot. In Oakland there would be guns pulled. In New Jersey there would be a brawl and massive lawsuit. In Indy, the guy catches the ball, gently hands it to Kristy and gives her a hug, leading the Denver Post to write a huge love letter on the situation.
Conclusion: Some days Brandon just isn’t the asshole ESPN wants you to believe.
