Most of us guys remember our first dip like it was yesterday.
You know, you grow up and see your buddies throw one in, and even though it looks like a chunk of cow manure they’re stuffing in their mouth, you can’t help but to try it out just so your friends don’t think you’re lame…
And then you do it, you accidentally swallow the spit because you have no idea what you’re doing, and next thing you know your head is spinning as you stand over a trash can for 20 minutes yacking your brains out.
The first time is never a pleasant experience, and I’ll go ahead and say it… you’re lying if you said your first time was.
Needless to say, that first attempt is crucial, because if you don’t throw up then you feel like you just won World War III.
With that being said, Pittsburgh Steelers wide receiver Chase Claypool found himself in this exact crucial moment after the Steelers defeated Tom Brady and the Tampa Bay Buccaneers 20-18 yesterday.
Even though he’s 24-years-old, he’s somehow gone his whole life without putting a dip in…
And for some reason, he felt like the best way to celebrate a win was by throwing a big ol’ hawg piece in for the first time.
And what was so crucial about this moment?
He threw it in while he was being interviewed after reporters after the game in the locker room.
Claypool was asked how it felt after defeating the Bucs, and her responded:
“Ah it feels awesome. Gunner, come here real quick….
He gave me a celebratory dip, it’s my first time ever. I can’t really with all these lights, but it feels good.”
Judging by the lump behind his lower lip, it appears that he put in a good sized one too.
It’s a bold strategy, because he’s risking getting sick to his stomach and yacking all over the reporters, but props to him…
He had a smile on his face the whole time even though we all know he’s dying inside.
Me: Chase, how does it feel to get a win like that?@ChaseClaypool: "It feels awesome. Gunner, come here real quick..he gave me a celebratory dip, it's my first time ever. I can't really with all these lights but it feels good." 😂 pic.twitter.com/dOS6oV72pG
