When it comes to presidential election coverage, I typically try to avoid it at all costs by watching trashy reality shows with a bottle of wine.

However, this presidential cycle has proven to be the gift that keeps on giving, so I decided to watch Sunday's second presidential debate. Boy am I glad I did, because it was basically reality television -- without the table flipping and drink throwing.

During Sunday's town-hall style debate, Donald Trump talked about the comments he made during a 2005 conversation. He referenced sexually assaulting women in that conversation, but during the debate, he brushed his words off as nothing more than traditional "locker room talk."

Since Trump's remarks have sparked controversy with a variety of male athletes, we here at ViralNova thought we'd look into the other kinds of things that go on in locker rooms. It's quite shocking what we found out.

1. There's a lot of pumping fellow teammates up for the big game.

They don't mean go sexually assault a woman.

Shaq knows what we're sayin'.
