Today is Barry Sanders’ 46th birthday and, to mark the occasion, we feature a lion narrowly avoiding death at the jaws of a crocodile. You say this is a disrespect way to mark a great man’s birthday and I counter that it’s not every week that we have a Kill Kill Kill post that contains zero killing. IT’S THE GREATEST HONOR WE CAN BESTOW!

Anyway, in case you’d like a more football-relevant tribute, here’s footage of Barry closing in on 2,000 yards in 1997.
