Impressive improv

Nope. He used his nose. Literally.

That’s a solid case of improvising and a situation that anybody who owns a smartphone in a cold-weather climate can relate to.

As many residents of those climates know, they do make gloves for these situations that have fingertips built to be sensed by smartphone and tablet screens.

Maybe the multibillion dollar NFL should invest in some for their players so they don’t have to swipe their faces across screens.
