Tomlinson had crazy night before season opener

Jets running back LaDainian Tomlinson apparently holds the key to having a solid NFL Sunday performance while helping his team to victory. Spend the night on a hospital bench after staying up all night the day before, then drive to your team meetings, then drive back to the hospital and then drive to the stadium to play.

That’s the timeline for Tomlinson, as recounted in the NY Daily News, when his wife, Torsha, had the couple’s second baby (and first girl), Dayah Lynn Tomlinson, at 9:16 a.m. on Sept. 10, the day before the Jets season opener.

After having the baby, Torsha spent another night in the hospital, so her husband did as well, sleeping on a bench with a cushion.

Tomlinson then drove to his meetings Sunday morning, and because Torsha had been released from the hospital -- and because Tomlinson insisted that he be the one to drive home his new baby girl and his wife – he had to return to the hospital a few hours before gametime. Then, drive home. Then, drive back to work.

In the Jets win, Tomlinson recorded a team-high six catches for 73 yards, so obviously he did something right the two nights before the game.

Said Torsha: “I was very proud of him. He showed up on Sunday in more ways than one.”
