Remember that hilarious but also disturbing video from last winter when a runaway golf cart took out a handful of unsuspecting folks standing in the middle of the field at Cowboys Stadium? No? Allow me to refresh your memory…
Anyway, turns out one of the victims of that unfortunate incident was Danny Amendola's dad, Willie, who coaches one of the high school football teams that was competing that day. And Willie Amendola — who was apparently the dude riding on the hood of the cart for about six seconds — has decided to sue Cowboys Stadium for $1 million in damages in relation to the episode, according to Blake Hurtik of the San Antonio Express-News, whose colleague was also run down by the hell-raising cart.
Hurtik notes that Amendola didn't appear to suffer any injuries, and that he even cracked a joke about the incident afterwards.
According to the lawsuit, the incident caused Amendola physical pain, “mental anguish,” “loss of earning capacity” and “loss of enjoyment.
Cowboys Stadium is owned by the Cowboys and the Cowboys are an NFL team. That means, one of the league's star players has a dad suing it. Had Amendola stayed with the Rams, he'd have made an appearance at Cowboys Stadium this season. Could have been awkward.
And as Pro Football Talk's Mike Florio points out, Amendola was originally signed by the Cowboys as an undrafted free agent out of Texas Tech. Could have been real awkward.
