Mike McCarthy Smashed Watermelons With A Sledgehammer To Motivate Cowboys Ahead Of Game vs Vikings

NFL coaches are always looking for unique ways to motivate their players.

Mike McCarthy found his unique way by taking a page out of Leo Anthony Gallagher Jr., known as Gallagher, who is an American comedian known for smashing watermelons as part of his prop comedy act. 

The Dallas Cowboys head coach smashed a number of watermelons with a sledgehammer at the Saturday night meeting. A number of players also joined in as McCarthy looked to hammer home points of emphasis:

The Cowboys won 31-28, snapping a four-game losing streak and improving to 3-7. With a win Thursday against the Washington Football Team, they would move into first place in the NFC East.


Will there be more watermelon smashing? Stay tuned.
