On Tuesday’s edition of the “The Morning After” podcast, Kelly Stafford, the wife of Rams quarterback Matthew Stafford, announced she was self-imposing a Rams road game ban on herself after what transpired last week at Levi’s Stadium where she was escorted out of the Rams-49ers game after a pretzel-throwing incident.
Kelly says she was removed from the stadium just five minutes into the game when a fan started heckling and the QB’s wife launched a pretzel at the guy. It’s probably best she was kicked out. The Rams went on to get blown out 31-10.
“I guess I hit him right in the head,” she explained on her aim with a piece of the pretzel she ripped off and launched behind her head. “Not an ideal response,” Kelly added.
“I’m human, I make mistakes, and I own up to them, I don’t f—king hide from them, that’s not me.”
“I’ve always been taught, I wear my heart on my sleeve so I do stuff probably in a hot second, but I also realize in a hot second, not the best, and I go up and I apologize.”
Now that things have settled down after the pretzel incident, the mother of four has done some self-analysis.
“Being a professional athlete’s significant other, you don’t wave want to bring attention to yourself negatively,” Kelly said. “I f–king lost it and here we are.”
