ST. LOUIS - St. Louis Rams cornerback Cortland Finnegan thought pie ambushes would be a fun addition to training camp. He was certain it was a good idea after taking four of them to the face, and several media members got splattered, too.
Finnegan was in mid-answer during an interview after practice Friday when defensive end Chris Long and cornerback Trumaine Johnson pounced. A third teammate videotaped it and quickly threw it on Twitter.
Finnegan took the blame for the counter-attack, joked that the Rams equipment manager would handle dry cleaning, cleared away some of the ooze and then went back to answering questions. He joked it was "appropriate" that media experience the fun, too.
