Tomlinson is a dancing star
By Bill Williamson
Thanks to his friends at Nike, San Diego running back LaDainian Tomlinson caught some grief at practice Monday.
As he should have.
Tomlinson’s shoe company released an internet version of the Chargers’ legendary running back performing a football-themed song and dance. Think a solo Super Bowl Shuffle.
Tomlinson told reporters Monday said it was filmed a couple of years ago.
“It was something that Nike wanted to do showing a different side of me,” Tomlinson said. “We came up with it. Nike put it together and I went in and did it and had a great time.”
Now, Tomlinson’s teammates are having a great time with it.
“Guys were repeating the song,” Tomlinson said. “They were repeating the words, the dance moves. (Guard) Kris Dielman was out on the field showing me all the dance moves from the video.”
