Fred Smoot Coins New, Dirty Phrase to Describe Actions on "Love Boat"

Fred Smoot opened up a little bit about the Minnesota Vikings "Love Boat" scandal in 2005 through a Reddit AMA. Fair warning, it's dirty.

Well, if you were ever curious of what happened on the Minnesota Vikings’ infamous Love Boat in 2005, former Redskin and boat passenger Fred Smoot cleared some of that up after participating in a Reddit AMA on Monday.

In doing so, he also coined a phrase which will never allow me to look at okra the same way again. Maybe that will carry over to all vegetables from here on out. Only time will tell:

Q: Was the love boat worth it?

Smoot: Man, everybody asks me something about that damn boat, and u know what the crazy thing is? that party was so overrated! story completely blown out of proportion! I don't know if I would say it was worth it but I wouldn't change anything in my past.

Q:I heard Bryant McKinnie picked a girl up, put her on the bar and ate her out on the bar and that's overrated?!? You throw some crazy parties.

Smoot: we call that runnin through the okra patch!

And there you have it.
