Does Andrew Luck have a pinkie injury on his throwing hand we weren’t aware of? Is there a reason the rookie sensation can’t straighten his pinkie to make the proper shaka sign at the Pro Bowl festivities?
This is Luck last night at some Waikiki party where the rookie went shaka on Instagram(er) namastina and forgot to straighten his pinkie. Again, a rookie making a rookie mistake at his first Pro Bowl. Totally understandable.
According to Wikipedia, the proper shaka sign is created by “extending the thumb and smallest finger while holding the three middle fingers curled, and raising the hand in salutation while presenting the back; the hand may be rotated back and forth for emphasis.”
As you can see, Luck is having trouble with the smallest finger part.
This one is a little better, but as you can see Luck still can’t seem to get the pinkie into proper shaka formation. We’ll go out on a limb and say that The Big Goofy will have plenty of trips to Hawaii to fix the issue – if Goodell doesn’t kill the Pro Bowl.
