Comedian Kevin Hart, who is 5-foot-2, challenged former NFL running back Stevan Ridley to a foot race. That was a bad idea.
The 44-year-old actor/comedian took to Instagram Wednesday detailing the physical damage in the race against Ridley. It was hilarious, to say the least as he showed himself in a wheelchair.
On Friday, we finally got to see how it happened as footage showed Hart running full speed just to pull up and start grabbing at his body as something clearly went wrong.
Hart said he tore multiple muscles in his abdomen, and he laid out his injuries in agonizing detail. He also said the incident served as a stark reminder that he is no longer a young man and that being over 40 will humble you.
“We get out there, we go run the 40-yard dash,” Hart said. “40-yard dash. Guys, I blew all my s–t. Tore my lower abdomen, my abductors. I don’t even know what that is, but I tore them. I tore those too. I can’t walk. Sit my ass down. This is 44.”
Even if Hart hadn’t gotten hurt, it looks as if he would’ve lost that race anyway.
After an excellent career at LSU, Ridley played eight seasons in the NFL, four of them with the New England Patriots. In 2012, Ridley rushed for 1,263 yards and 12 touchdowns.
That’s not exactly the type of person you want to challenge to a race, and Hart probably won’t be making that mistake again.
No word on how long he will be in a wheelchair and if this affects any movie he is currently working on.
