Smoot to have trouble playing, spitting game.

Put the lap dances on hold. One of our favorite characters might need to take a break from the strip clubs for a few weeks. Fred Smoot, of Love Boat fame, broke his jaw in five places in a single-car accident in Mississippi. Smoot was at home for the holidays, and most likely was on his way home from a gentlemen's club when the accident occurred. No word on if he was sober or doing a Dontrelle impression.

Needless to say, Smoot won't be playing in the Vikings' final game on Sunday. Sadly, he'll probably need to stay out of the strips also to make sure the jaw heals properly. In the meantime, he might need some special training in order to spit game the way he's used to.

While it's never good to see a player get knocked out of action, we're resting easy knowing he'll likely be healed in time for next summer's annual boat cruise.

In other news: Chris Simms signed a two-year contract extension with Tampa Bay and will look to lose his kidney next.

Does Simms get spleen insurance?

The cynical Vikings fan in me would say that Smoot's jaw was the best part of his game. All talk, no game.
