(Newser) – At times the losing team is accused of choking. This time ESPN announcer Chris Fowler admits he choked, literally, during yesterday's Pinstripe Bowl, the AP reports. Fowler tweeted that he was choking on a chicken sandwich at halftime when fellow broadcaster Jesse Palmer gave him the Heimlich maneuver. "Never before needed a Heimlich at halftime. (Or any time)!" he posted. "Thanks Jesse Palmer! He saved me from death by dry chicken sandwich. Really." He soon added that it was "not bad to have a quick-thinking, ex-NFL player around" in a time of need.

I've done the Heineken maneuver before, but never the Heimlich.

Had occasion to use the Heimlich once...and at the time..I hadn't been taught exactly "how" to do it..just from what I'd seen on worked like a charm! Terribly impressive!
