Claude Giroux Bites Erik Gudbranson’s Jersey (Video)

Claude Giroux Bites Erik Gudbranson's Jersey

Congratulations, Claude Giroux.  You’ve joined the likes of Mike Tyson and Luis Suarez in their special group of athletes with a biting problem.

Giroux’s biting incident comes at an odd time, however, as the NHL currently finds itself in the midst of a mumps epidemic. But the risk of contracting the viral disease didn’t seem to deter the Flyers’ center from taking a bite out of the arm of Florida’s Erik Gudbranson during Thursday’s game at the Wells Fargo Center.

Why would a player like Giroux do such a thing?  Is he a zombie?  Are the Flyers’ nutritionists not including enough meals in his diet?  Those are both possibilities, but I’d say the simple explanation is Grioux is just a gross kind of guy.
