The news out of the sports world today just kind of makes you laugh. We have a self-shooter, the highest played jobless man, the beginning of the end and a guy who cheats before he starts. This stuff should make even W feel good about himself.
Plaxico Burress is so dumb… (how dumb is he?)… that he shot himself in the leg with his own gun. Really? How does this happen? I need to know the details. There’s no way a gun can accidentally go off so there has to be more to the story. To shot himself in this way, he would need to have the gun cocked and the safety off. Only a complete retard would do this so it’s hard to believe. Then again, this is Plaxico we are talking about so it just may be believable. So, what Plaxico wants us to believe is, he entered a Latin club where he only felt safe with a gun, the gun started slippy down his pants, he went to reach for it, and it fired a bullet into his leg because he had a round chambered and the safety off? Then he and Antonio Pierce tried to hide the gun and Pierce acted like nothing happened the next day even though his best friend was just shot? Yep, all very believable statements.Hell, I’d believe a drunk leprechaun walked up to Burress, punch him in the groan, hopped on his pot of gold and started flying around while Burress chased him, knocked him off the pot gold, held him in front of him while Pierce took the gun and shot the leprechaun only to have the bullet go all the way through the leprechaun and into the leg of Burress. Burress shouldn’t be charged with whatever possession of firearms he is being charged with, instead by charged in conspiracy to commit murder and Pierce should be charged with murder and we should all be looking for a dead leprechaun thrown in a NYC dumpster.
In the “Who didn’t see this one coming” or the “It’s about time” new category, the WNBA is shutting down the Houston Comets. What a shame. A team with such tradition like the Comets have (the won the first four WNBA championships) deserved a better fate. The are shutting down the Comets because no one wants to buy them. No kidding. Giving millions of dollars to a bum on the street and telling him to invest it for you and you’ll be back in a month to pick it up is a better investment than a WNBA team. I think this is the saddest news for one Isiah Thomas. Being the commissioner of the WNBA and running it into the ground was the only thing that could have saved is reputation. (The picture is reason No. 743 why the rest of the WNBA teams should follow the Comets lead.)
So Stephon Marbury makes $21 million a year. And now he was ordered to stay away from the NY Knicks after he was suspended for refusing to play. Everyone is jumping on Marbury and calling him selfish and what not (which he is) but would you want to play for a coach who came into the season and never gave you a chance? Mike D’Antoni took the Knicks job knowing he wasn’t ever going to play Marbury. He benched him from day one and told people he wasn’t ever going to play him and looking to trade him. Then, one game the coach asks him to go into a game and the player refused. No shit. I would do. I’d give him big middle finger. Why play for a guy who is trying to ruin your career? Marbury is an asshole and he brought his all on himself with the way he acted last year but I agree with him for refusing to play. Plus I don’t think Murbury’s too worried about it. Now he doesn’t have to do anything and he is still getting paid $2 million every time wipes his ass.
Highly successful former Oakland Raider head coach Lane Kiffin was named Tennessee’s new coach. But even before he was, he allegedly broke NCAA rules by contacting a recruit. You aren’t suppose to make any contact with players until you pass a NCAA test. Way to go Kiffin. Nothing like starting off on the right foot. Nick Saban thinks that move is bush league. Of course, the claim is coming from Steve Spurrier and he might just be messing with the new kid, which would make the story even sweeter if the Old Ball Coach just made up the whole thing. At least Lane’s wife hot.
