Detroit Lions Ndamukong Suh rescues water-logged comedian Louis Anderson

Ndamukong Suh saves rotund comedian Louis Anderson in pool mishap. (A sentence I never thought I’d write).

It happened during a taping of “Splash” ABC’s new reality celebrity diving show, according to TMZ. Suh and Anderson are both contestants.

 Anderson was practicing his diving for the show and got so exhausted he couldn’t get himself up the ladder. He kept falling backward into the water, according to the report.

 Suh, the Detroit Lions defensive tackle, and divemaster Greg Louganis (former Olympian) had to lift him to poolside where he choked up some pool water, but was fine and plans to continue on with the show.

 Other contestants include Miss Alabama Katherine Webb (girlfriend of Alabama quarterback A.J. McCarron) and Kareem Abdul-Jabbar (apparently desperate for any kind of publicity).

 This is just such an odd premise, I might have to peak at it out of curiosity. First episode is set to air in March.

 Suh, who played in the Pro Bowl on Sunday night, didn’t have permission of the Lions to participate even though it’s a dangerous sport. Coach Jim Schwartz didn’t seem too upset about it when talking to reporters last week.
