D.C. Earthquake Reaction: Terrence Austin Thinks We're All Weaklings

As all of you probably know, an earthquake just happened in Washington, D.C. and all up along the East Coast. It has been measured as a 5.8 on the scale while originating in Richmond, Virginia. That's not an incredibly strong earthquake, but it's not a weak one either, and Washington D.C. doesn't traditionally get earthquakes of any kind.

This was evident in the reaction of Washington Redskins receiver Terrence Austin, who grew up in California and attended UCLA.

Please, Terrence, let us have our five minutes to unnecessarily freak out. Here are more reactions by local athletes.

And while this is not an athlete, it's probably my favorite reaction of them all.

Guys: Sources cannot confirm Haynesworth's participation in #Patriots practice caused the earthquake. Searching for more sources...less than a minute ago via TweetDeck Favorite Retweet Reply
