I love stupid athletes. In a city that has arguably some of the best public transportation in the world, Jets wide receiver / professional punk Braylon Edwards got himself drunk and arrested with a boozy .19 blood alcohol level. That’s more than twice the legal limit. No surprise here: Braylon found himself in jail. The real question is whether or not he’ll be thrown to the wolves like Plaxico Burress or Michael Vick. Not saying those two didn’t deserve hard time in the clink, but as long as the NFL is doling out suspensions, it would be nice to see a drunk driver get more than the Paris Hilton treatment.
Nevertheless, if it’s any consolation to Edwards, he can relish in the fact that he did beat the New England Patriots quite handily on Sunday, perhaps sending shockwaves through the world of football betting — or at least the emotional state of my dear Masshole friend IndianJones (who, incidentally, I beat in our fraternity Fantasy Football league. Much like the Jets did to the Pats, I too came from behind to DESTROY him).
Anyway, for those who want to read more about Edwards’ arrest, including the new developments that he was driving two fellow teammates (whether they also had Crazy beards is unclear), check out the full article at ESPN.
