I Was Sure The Suspension Would Change Everything

I don't know a lot about Minnesota. I know it can get cold and maybe they don't get the NFL memos and the news as quickly was we do down here, but I'm sure this isn't what Roger Goodell had in mind when he sent a "message' to the players when he suspended Pacman for the entire upcoming season. I'm surprised that less than a week later, another NFL player and Big 12er, would end up getting arrested at a club at night. Didn't the Commissioner's letter emphasis that players shouldn't be out late at night where something could go wrong? I think this whole year has really opened up a lot of eyes. Until now we had no idea that a bunch of twenty-something, testosterone riddled, wealthy males were out at clubs, sometimes nudie bars, drinking heavily and making poor decisions in the middle of the night. I for one thought this kind of thing only happened in College Station.

What could have been? Such lost potential. All we'll ever know of the Playmaker's career is 12 Hall of Fame years.

  • One could argue that going to clubs and nudie bars in College Station is, in it self, a poor decision.

  • I understand. I've been to a little place in Waco called the Showtime Club. Let's just say the regret felt by customers is only matched by the regret of the employees.

  • At least Pac-Man made it rain cash. At Showtime, the locals make rain McCormicks and dancers occasionally get shot trying to lick it up.

    It's like the Judge said, a large hairy woman doesn't know regret until she gets on all fours only to be mistaken for a deer.

  • I blame Swanburg's comment for the fact that you haven't posted anything since Monday, and it is now almost Friday.

    Hey, did you see that Tydwbleach's house blew up? Gads!

  • Gentlemen, I have an interview up with a GW freshmen who's entering the NBA draft - except he isn't on the basketball team and only scored 2 points in his high school career. He's claiming to be the first Sikh in the draft. thought you might find it amusing

  • That's funny because last night Pat and I were discussing the possibility of declaring for the NBA draft. I assume anyone can, right?

  • yeah, i think there may be some kind of small fee. apparently another GW guy did it years ago as a joke, but didn't bother contacting the press. he says some Irish team called him.
