Note to self: Never make fun of Brendan Witt on this blog. Ever.
New York Islanders defenseman Brendan Witt was hit by a truck this morning in Center City Philadelphia. Witt was apparently walking to a local Starbucks on Arch Street to grab a cup of coffee when a gold GMC Yukon truck made an illegal turn and struck him.
Onlookers said Witt tried to brace himself by jumping on the hood of the car before he was struck – but ended up getting hit and rolling off anyways. After a few profanities, Witt surprised a few people by dusting himself off and walking away like nothing happened.
Hardcore, man. Freakin’ hardcore.
