WORD!

And in other news, it looks like Plax will not be playing again for the Giants this year (and maybe ever).

Potentially a $1.8MM fine. So maybe we can forget the "rolling around in my money" part.

The problem with that is to guys like Plaxico, the solution is carrying a gun. If I move into their tax bracket, I'm not carrying a gun.

The problem with is that Steve Smith, another wide receiver for the Giants (who makes a lot less money thatn Plax) was robbed in his own Drive way. He got out of his and some dude came out of hiding and put a gun to his head.

Honestly, I don't think that was any concernof Burress Friday night, but it goes to show a lot of these guys are targets simply for being well known.

It is one thing to say, "hey, don't wear $20,000 of bling and stroll through Red Hook" like someone did a few years ago. But, I'm not going to fault a young guy who has made it big for wanting a big house and nice car.



One more thing bugging me: How the hell did Plax get into a night club wearing sweat pants?

Yeah I like what Brandon Jacobs had to say about being a potential target for robbers.

Then the reporter apparently asks him if he even owns a gun and he says:

That s*it cracks me up. I like how he just blatantly says he'll kill you. He's just letting all the crooks know that he ain't nothin nice. Hell, I believe him.



"Hey let's rob that house tonight!"

"Wait, isn't that where BRANDON JACOBS lives? Man, fuck that, LLoyd. I say we try and rob this little white boy next door."

Have you seen Brandon Jacobs? He does not look like he needs a gun.

I know. That's the best part really. It's like if the Incredible Hulk pulled a gun on you. Who the hell would see that coming?

By the by, I heard Plax's agent, Drew Rosenhaus being interviewed by Tony Siragusa during halftime of the MNF game. Oh, if those microphones had exploded, I could've died a happy man.

Considering how most agents are soulless undead hellspawn and Rosenhaus is a "super agent", I don't think it would have done anything.

If I had to choose a way to die, it would be getting shot by The Incredible Hulk. I would demand it be on my tombstone even!

I've always wondered how athletes are treated when they go to prison. Guys like Bam Morris, Rae Curruth, or Michael Vick. Do they get treated better by inmates because of their celebrity status like Rick Fox on "OZ" or do they get targeted maybe to bring them down to everyone else's level? I'm sure someone like Vick probably has inmates to do his bidding given the fact that he'll likely still be playing when he gets out. But guys like Bam Morris or Carruth who aren't getting out anytime soon, what happens to them?

Thanks to Plaxico, the rest of the country is left to suffer:

How about OJ? 15 years in the slam, parole potentially in 8 - methinks he's in for a rollicking good time.
