Florida Gators Kicker Chas Henry: Todd Grantham Shouldn't Apologize For Choking Gesture

Florida Gators message boards and Tony Barnhart, Chas Henry thinks you're "ridiculous." As Gator Bytes' Jason Lieser shares, the Gators makeshift kicker doesn't think Georgia Bulldogs DC Todd Grantham should be punished or have to apologize for showing concern over Henry properly chewing and swallowing his mid-game energy bar:

"I see that they'd taken a timeout and I looked over at their coach and I started laughing, like, ‘You're going to ice me? I'm not even the kicker. You're going to ice me?'" Henry said today. "So I start looking and I see the guy doing the choke. I look at him again and he does like, ‘You're gonna choke.' So I take my helmet off and I gave him a little smooch at him. I blew him a little kiss.

The skinny punter was blowing kisses at a 44-year-old man who has the disposition of a clogged smokestack! SEC football! For the viewer with no particular team allegiances, this rivalry sure does stay stocked with really enjoyable characters. What would you give for next year's game to come down to Grantham vs. Henry, round two?

He does make a great point in there as well. Who ever heard of icing a punter? Mark Richt: come on, son.

Finally: between Grantham's choke, Henry's kiss, and Urban Meyer's postgame chomp directed at unruly Dawgs fans in the stands, was this the gesturiest college football game ever?

Finally finally: can we move on to Idaho State and Vanderbilt now?
