So, there’s been a little bickering going on back and forth between NFL WR Brandon Marsall of the Denver Broncos and LB Joey Porter of the Miami Dolphins. Marshall accused Porter in a post-game interview of having “Popcorn Muscles.” I ain’t but never heard that term before. Porter has always been a talker, so its fun to see him take some shit, even if its from Brandon Marshall. Marshall went on to say “You know, we hear stories floating around the league all the time about him as far [as being] in nightclubs dancing with his shirt off like a girl or in the playground getting beat up back in California.”
The real term here is “Popcorn Muscles.” From what I can gather its when a guy is poppin’ out with muscles, but is still soft, he’s got popcorn muscles. Kind of like how popcorn looks all jagged and tough, but is really just soft. This can easily be inferred from Marshall’s comment that “[Porter] he’s definitely one of those guys who all those muscles are popcorn muscles. He’s soft.” So when you’re at the gym, and you see some muscle-bound guy that can’t help but think is probably still a wimp. Probably a guy that shaves his chest and/or legs… he’s probably got Popcorn Muscles.
So, congratulations Mr. Marshall, you have brought a new term to the national lexicon… “Popcorn Muscles”
