One of the worst chokes on sports was avoided at the Pinstripe Bowl , unfortunately it didn’t take place on the field but in the booth Saturday at Yankee Stadium.

During the match-up at Yankee Stadium between Rutgers and Notre Dame, ESPN's Chris Fowler got a chicken sandwich lodged in his throat and needed booth partner Jesse Palmer to perform the Heimlich. The former Giants quarterback came through, saving his partner's life.




If only Palmer, who was a "The Bachelor" during season 5 of the ABC series, could have performed the Heimlich on his former team this year!
