Jesse Palmer, former Florida and New York Giants quarterback, has been quite successful in television both as a reality star and college football analyst. After Saturday, he can add the Heimlich maneuver and other basic life-saving skills to that résumé.
Palmer and Chris Fowler were calling the Pinstripe Bowl for ESPN. According to Fowler, a dry chicken sandwhich nearly ruined the second half of the broadcast.
Never before needed a Heimlich at halftime. (Or any time)! thanks Jesse Palmer! He saved me from death by dry chicken sandwich. Really.— Chris Fowler (@cbfowler) December 28, 2013
Not bad to have quick thinking, ex-NFL player around when Heimlich needed. I'll take bruised ribs to avoid choking!— Chris Fowler (@cbfowler) December 28, 2013
