Kendall Langford Loses $50,000 Earring During Practice, Teammates Stop to Help

Don't you hate when you're going about your day and, suddenly, you realize that your $50,000 earring fell out of your ear at work? It's the worst! So you can imagine how Miami Dolphins defensive end Kendall Langford must have felt on Tuesday when he realized that his 2.5 carat diamond earring had fallen out of his ear during practice.

The incident was tragic enough that the team halted practice and, according to, at least nine players were "crawling across the field" searching for Langford's earring. These players went above and beyond the call of duty, according to the "Bro Code." Nowhere in the 150 articles of brodom does it say that one needs to crawl across a football field in search of another bros earring. Though if I were writing "Sex and the City 3" I might write this scene into the movie.

Naturally, Langford was appreciative of his teammates efforts. "I've got a great group of guys out here helping me out -- family-type guys," he told

Langford and his teammates did have to give up their search for the lost earring due to a team meeting. I have a feeling this will be the last time Langford forgets to take off his earrings before practice. In fact, I'll wager $50,000 on it.

My only gripe is that they did not immediately check the filter in the dolphin tank.
