After Wimbledon win, Djokovic embraced his inner-Les Miles

Les Miles

Novak Djokovic outlasted Roger Federer in a masterful Wimbledon final Sunday. This marked the second straight Wimbledon men’s championship for Djokovic, each coming against Federer. The thrill of victory can lead any person to do something unnatural, like eating grass.

As Djokovic celebrated his second Wimbledon championship, he dropped to the grass on the court and had a sample…

This may have been a strange sight for tennis fans watching, but thi is certainly nothing new for college football fans.

Miles was caught on camera during the 2010 game against Alabama bending over to pick up some grass from the sideline at Tiger Stadium. He put the grass in his mouth and just after that LSU successfully converted a two-point attempt to put the Tigers up 21-14 on Alabama midway through the fourth quarter.

“I have a little tradition that humbles me as a man, that lets me know that I’m a part of the field and part of the game,” Miles said in 2010. “I can tell you one thing: The grass in Tiger Stadium tastes best.”

I would love to get a Miles food review of the grass at Wimbledon.

Update: Apparently he did this last year too, and Miles took notice.

    This wasn’t his second straight victory. He last win Wimbledon in 2011. Andy Murray won Wimbledon last year.
