Chargers defensive end Corey Liuget says he had good reason to turn down what probably would've been the freshest meal he has ever eaten. It was too fresh.
As Liuget discovered on his vacation in Ethiopia, the locals enjoy their meat by eating an animal on the same day that they kill it. In Liuget's case, he was visiting with his girlfriend, Faven, who is from Ethiopia, and their hosts were preparing goat.
"The only reason why I couldn't eat it is because I'd seen the whole process done," Liuget says. "It was one of the craziest, most freakiest things I'd ever seen in my life. We brought him from the market ... and into the front yard. We hung him up on the tree and killed the goat right in front of me. Skinned him. Gutted him. They cooked everything in his body. Everything. I mean, from the intestines to the testicles. Everything. The tongue."

Liuget was the Chargers' first-round pick in 2011 from Illinois where he majored in sociology.
