John Tavares interview nearly gets indecent

Yahoo Sports Minute

The postgame scene in locker rooms can be treacherous at times. It can also be a place where inadvertent indecency takes place. Just ask former Minnesota Vikings tight end Visanthe Shiancoe. Thankfully, for one very alert New York Islanders player, he avoided Shiancoe's fate. Let's explain.

While captain John Tavares was doing an interview with Islanders TV following the club's 3-0 loss Saturday night to the New Jersey Devils at the Barclays Center, a teammate poked his head out from behind a wall. He appeared to have just finished showering and realized if he had made one more one step, he would have been fully exposed. Thankfully for all parties involved though, the unidentified player's modesty — and awareness — won out. Moments later, he was handed a towel and a potentially outrageous blooper was averted.

Meanwhile in football, Denver Broncos quarterback Peyton Manning looked like the 2013 NFL MVP against the Oakland Raiders. Manning threw three more touchdown passes in a 37-21 victory to give him 12 on the season, the most through three games in league history.

Finally, Argentinos Juniors player Gaspar Iniguez lost three teeth and was given a yellow card for a dangerous tackle.
