With a crazy snowstorm hitting the East Coast, many are trying to stay warm in the cozy confines of their own homes.

Not Ravens fullback Vonta Leach.

On Wednesday night, with the storm rolling in, Leach accepted a challenge to jump in a pool despite the 32-and-below weather. Talk about crazy.

Here's a video, which Leach tweeted out:

You couldn't pay me to do this. While I have mad respect for Leach for jumping in ice cold water (hey, he's probably used to it in some capacity given that football players have to take cold tub baths), I'll never be found jumping in a pool when it's freezing outside.

Call me a wuss or what not, but I'm just fine indoors watching the snow fall from a window.

Leach is clearly a tough guy and still one of the best in the business at fullback — even if the Ravens don't think it's necessary to play him the necessary number of snaps he deserves.
