This week, the Internet is sharing a potentially very embarrassing–and definitely NSFW for its language–video of a Louisiana State University fan almost losing his dentures as badly as his team lost to the Arkansas Razorbacks in Saturday’s game. The cantankerous old fan, who was exchanging words with an Arkansas fan, became incomprehensible as his dentures nearly flew out of his mouth. Admittedly, this is a little scary looking, because it seems like he’s about to spit out mouthparts like an alien, but it’s also silly, and definitely makes the fan look a little foolish.
If you want to avoid this type of embarrassing scene, it may be time to consider new dentures.
Even if your dentures are normally secure, watching football can make it more likely that you’ll lose them. If you’re a big fan, watching football is a very emotional experience. It’s easy to get carried away–like this LSU fan–which may make you forget that it’s important to keep a hold of your dentures. Instead, you are so emotionally involved and concerned with pushing out all that energy. Yelling pushes out a lot of air, and as you open your mouth wide to let out the sound, or move your mouth rapidly to form the sound into syllables, it’s easy for your dentures to be dislodged.
And if you like a few cold ones while watching the game, know that alcohol makes this worse. Keeping your dentures secure takes muscle action, but alcohol causes your muscles to relax, making it more likely that your dentures will come out. So if you’ve been drinking and emotions run high late in the game, it’s a lot more likely that your dentures will come out.
This is an exciting season for the Philadelphia Eagles. Despite a few tough road losses, we’re leading our division again. It seems likely at this point that they will be making it to the playoffs this year, and that means that there will definitely be some high-energy games in the last part of the season. Whether you’re going to be watching in the stadium or at home, it’s best to make sure your dentures will stay in for the entire game.
