(Newser) – A missed kick wasn’t the only embarrassment for the San Diego Chargers’ Nick Novak in a game this weekend. CBS cameras provided a shot of the man peeing on the sidelines, the New York Daily News notes. When reporters asked Novak about the incident, he wasn’t bashful. “I usually go two or three times a game,” he said. “If guys pay attention to that, you’ll see quite a few guys go to the bathroom.”

An NFL PR official spoke to the issue, too. “When this occurs, the player has been shielded from public view and there have been no issues with it,” he said. “If a player goes to the locker room, he may not be available when his team is counting on him to be on the field.” The moment gave a whole new meaning to an announcer’s comment about Novak’s “range.” The kicker conceded that it was “kind of embarrassing, but oh, well.”

Camera man or camera girl was an idiot. Camera guy knew what Novack was doing but he just had to bust him on it! Fucking idiot should have keep his camera on the game! Camera man probably puts hides cameras in people's bathrooms too.

When you live in San Diego or anywhere in Cali you'll realize that pissing in public is perfectly normal.
