Real Men of BAMFness: Brendan Witt

They build ’em tough in Saskatchewan. From New York Islanders defenceman Brendan Witt was hit by a car in Philadelphia on Tuesday, according to Newsday. But Witt reportedly picked himself up off the road and, after a few profanities, assured everyone he was all right before continuing on his way, prompting one witness to say, “it was like seeing Clint Eastwood, but in hockey.”

Witt was crossing Arch Street to get a cup of coffee when a gold Yukon truck made an illegal turn and hit the 34-year-old. Newsday says Witt tried to jump on the hood of the vehicle before being thrown to the ground as he was struck.

“I’m okay,” Witt told the crowd as he dusted himself off, according to Newsday. “I’ve got to go play some hockey. I’m a hockey player. I’m okay. No big deal.”

BW, you are a BAMF

Thanks to Paulo Sousa for the nomination

  1. I don't know that I'd want to rank BAMFs. What if you angered one lower on the list? Bad group of people to upset!

    I see BAMFs more like the reverse Darwin Awards. BAMFs are people who survive (and thrive) because of their intellect. As opposed to Darwin Award winners, who die as a result of lack of intellect.
