Joe Burrow today is in the eye of the NFL world leading the Cincinnati Bengals to the Super Bowl, and nearly winning it against the Rams, but now some things are coming to light that he’s not particularly proud of.
After LSU won the National Championship, Burrow and some of his teammates smoked cigars at the Mercedes-Benz Superdome in New Orleans to celebrate.
Burrow appeared on the Full Send podcast and said that police officers were starting to arrest people in the locker room since no one was allowed to smoke inside the stadium.
Joe Burrow’s story during his collegiate title with LSU
“We were going to smoke all the cigars in the locker room. And we started smoking them and the cops came in because I guess you’re not allowed to smoke inside or whatever,” Burrow said. “They started trying to arrest people in the locker room after we won the national title. We thought, ‘What’s going on? Come on.’ This was in Louisiana. We played in New Orleans for the national title. They were trying to arrest us.
Burrow is definitely lucky he could get away with smoking that cigar. He finished that title game against Clemson with 463 yards and five touchdowns as LSU won 42-25.
If Burrow wins a Super Bowl in the future, he’s likely to smoke another cigar, regardless of the rules inside the stadium.
