It’s Impossible To Not Like Lamar Jackson After Watching This Mic’d Up Video From His Record-Setting Game

Do you have eight minutes Just 8? Of course you do. There’s less than two weeks until New Years, if you’re doing anything in your office aside from watching YouTube videos on the toilet until your legs fall asleep, you’re a pathetic sucker. And I say that with the utmost respect, sucker.

With your next eight minutes, watch the mic’d up footage from the game that Lamar Jackson broke Michael Vick’s single-season quarterback rushing record.

I’ve hated the Ravens my entire life as a Pats fan (hold your applause), but watching this I found myself eating crab cakes and snorting Old Bay.

Can we talk about his record-breaking run (at the 1:15 mark) for a second? How the hell does sentient being not made of chromium steel pop up from a hit like this? How?

This should kill a man.

I’m trying not to be hyperbolic over one mic’d up video, but literally everything Lamar Jackson said to his teammates in that video either appreciative or encouraging.

“I love you.”

“Appreciate you, bro.”

[After Mark Andrews sets the Ravens franchise record for most touchdowns by a tight end] “Aaaaahhh!” 

[Hands Andrews ball] “Hey this you. Keep that. Damn record, baby. Let’s go!”

“We need to be scoring…we putting the defense out there with no points.”

[Going down the bench to dap everyone up] “All day, ya’ll keep going.” 

[Mark Ingram calling Lamar  “Freaky L” on the sideline, Lamar pointing to Marquise Brown] “Freaky Quise! That’s freaky Quise!” [Stands up and gives Ingram and Brown a double hug]

I won’t say that I’m a Ravens fan or a Baltimore supporter, but I think I’m at the point where I consider saying ‘The Wire Is The Best Television Show Ever Made‘ is a personality trait.

The anti-drug people gave him a $50 savings bond for his brave contribution to crime-fighting, and upon the bond’s maturity 10 years later, he used it to buy his very first bag of marijuana.
