Kick Back Sunday

I've got a big day of watching football today, and getting ready to place my Meadowlands Over/ Under bet. In most cases, the over/ under bet has to do with the score of the football game, but in Meadowlands Over/Under betting, we gamble on how many members of our teams will be facing jail by gametime.

It currently stands at 3, with 2 players from the Giants, and 1 from the Jets, and I'm betting the over. You need to understand, we have 2 teams, so that really raises the potential for indictments.

Professional Dumbass Plaxico Burress
If you don't follow sports, Burress, an incredibly talented player for the Giants, accidentally shot himself because he is an idiot in an unfortunate accident. His recently signed contract for over 30 million dollars will be negated. Yes, he is losing a contract for over $30,000,000 because he thought it was a good idea to illegally carry a handgun, in the band of his sweatpants. Stop laughing. I'm trying to be serious here. He didn't think anything bad could happen when he carried a loaded gun in his stretchy sweatpants. And, in case you missed the story, the gun slipped down his pants, and he accidentally shot himself. Photobucket Yeah, I know.

For those who are into making videos, my friend Kelly is having a nice contest at http://www.whatdoesthissongmeantome.com/2008/12/win-25-amazon-gift-card-in-holiday.html with some cash prizes. She is looking for original Holiday videos, and while her forte is music, she will accept other videos. You can find the complete rules on her site. Good luck, and have fun.

You can still vote on the sidebar in the election that never ends.

30 Million dollars! I guess that brings new meaning to "The shot heard around the world." How did it accidentally go off? What got hooked on the trigger? Dufus!

Nicole said...

So funny--I can't stop giggling! (My husband had already told me about this, but your re-tell was a crack up!)

Swirl Girl said...

wouldn't it have been easier to break a toe or something? then he could get on the injured player list and still play.

...and no bullet wounds.

kalos_eidos said...

Ya know, I'm not usually the type of person to laugh at the misfortune of others. Idiocy, however, is an entirely different matter....bwuaaahahahaha! Guffaw!

What a complete moron.

JD from Hoeno said...

I don't follow football but I did hear that he shot himself in the leg...I, uh...heheheh...I hadn't heard that's how...it...uh...hahahahaha...it fell down his pants? LOLOLOL No, seriously, he's lucky he didn't lose ...I mean, he's...He could've ended up playing for a woman's league, is what I'm saying.

Adullamite said...

"...he accidentally shot himself!"

Brilliant!

Lauren said...

You have ONE team. The Jets. The Giants are NEW YORK's that use a stadium in NJ. Say it slowly with me Crotchety...The New YORK Giants! GOOD, see you didn't die.

Don said...

Another moron another dollar saved...I'm sure he had good reason for having that gun. For instance, he's a dumbass, or two, he's trying to become a dumbass. Oh well...

ReformingGeek said...

I think the punishment should be sterilization. Get this guy out of the gene pool.

netta said...

Maybe the Giants can take that money and hire a player that has a clue.

Dumbass.

Dan Brantley said...

Obviously Burress is hanging out with Michael Vick's old posse while the Vickster is in the slammer.

unfinishedrambler said...

On a blog to which I contribute I actually went as far to label Burress as Douche bag No. 1 in the NFL, although anymore it's hard to say. There's so many.

ettarose said...

Here I thought all along that being a total idiot was a prerequisite to be a football player.

Da Old Man said...

@ MA: Total dufus

@ Nicole: Thanks. Hard to believe the story, it's so dumb.

@ Swirl: It probably wasn't the best decision. :)

@ Kalos: Complete idiocy is truly hilarious

@ JD: I wasn't sure whether it would be you or Lucy to enjoy this story on many different levels :)

@ Adullamite: See what you miss with soccer. It's a whole new level of crazy

@ Lauren: We have 2 teams, Jets and Giants. :) The offices are in NY, but the teams are 100% Jersey.

@ Don: Basically any reason containing the word dumbass would apply

@ Reforming: That would be a good start.

@ Netta: I would hope so. You should be able to buy some smarter player for 30+ mil.

@ Dan: They may be suiting up for the best prison football team ever.

@ Unfinished: I'll be by to check it out, only because I wonder who came in second. :)

@ Etta: He's pretty close to a total idiot.

Lord, I want to be whole said...

I think it would be dangerous for someone like that to have a 30 million contract...eeek!

P.S. I voted for your blog on the sidebar!

I really love your blog!

Da Old Man said...

@ Lord I want to be whole: Thank you very much. You're right. He probably would be self-destructive.

Kevin John said...

No Problem Da Old Man,

CNN is reporting that as soon as Plaxico's wounds heal he'll snag a great deal with the Detroit Lions for a bit less and one of those reposessed homes around the neighborhood that needs ..a little fixin' up thrown in.

A Lion's spokesman was reported as saying the club needs as much exposure as they can get, and by now he will have a definate incentive to hate everthing New York-a big plus for team spirit!

At any rate , who ever heard of a GIANTS player with a name like that? He was born to play for Detroit.

Chat Blanc said...

omg, I love your under/over bet! classic gangsta style football. :)

Da Old Man said...

@ Kevin John: He does have that Detroit Lions edge to his name.

@ Chat: LOL @ gangsta style football.

PaulsHealthblog.com said...

Plaxico Burress ain't real bright.

So what team do you think will pick him up?

And will they be able to sign him for the NFL minimum?

Marvel Goose said...

Man, that was one stiff....


fine!

LL said...

What do you mean? I'd say that's the best way to get out of a 30 million dollar contract that I can think of...

Da Old Man said...

@ Paul: It depends. If he gets the jail term the mayor of NYC wants him to get, he probably won't play ever again.

@ Marvel: True

@ LL: I'm sure the Giants would rather he show up and did his job

Kirsten said...

I always carry a LOADED gun in my sweatpants into a club. Now he has to ruin it for me!

Lauren said...

NOPE! ONE TEAM. NJ JETS. The Giants are still a NY team. RASPBERRY being given to YOU!
