You Gotta Be A Football Hero

Hey Peeps and anyone else checking in. A special "Hey" goes out to Hazel Mae.

I'll pick up where I left off on Tuesday night (I'm still not talking about that damn poker tournament last night). More of the "notables" from the world of sports - you can't make some of this stuff up.



Denver Broncos QB Jake "The Snake" Plummer is in some trouble - seems like Jake was involved in a traffic confrontation in Colorado last month. A motorist claims that Plummer cut him off in traffic and then kicked his truck at a stop light.

Plummer started out by admitting he cut the other driver off, his excuse being that he was in a hurry to drop off a cheque to his charitable foundation, but Jake claimed he apologized for the incident. Jake went on to say that the guy bumped his car from behind when he was at a stop light.

Surprise, surprise - the other person saw things a little differently. He admits beeping his horn at Jake, because he was driving recklessly, and that Jake responded by getting out of his car at a stop light and kicking his truck.

When told that there were witnesses who backed the other driver up - Jake passed it all off, by saying he was there to play football. He went off on some crazy tangent about how he doesn't have a problem with anger management, that he just wants to focus on playing football.

I'm going to file this one under "whacked" - road rage? roid rage? Looking at Jake...I'll go with the former. Kind of funny that a guy who is nicknamed "The Snake" is asking people to believe his side of the story...even AFTER witnesses told police that the other driver's version was what took place.

Cleveland Browns RB Rueben Droughans turned himself in to police in Colorado after being charged with third degree assault and harrassment stemming from an incident of domestic violence in a Denver suburb. Droughans could face 6 to 18 months in jail if convicted of assault.

This is Droughans second run-in with police; earlier this month an Ohio jury decided that Droughans was not driving while impaired - even though he failed a breathalyzer test. Read the story for Rueben's excuse.

File this one under just plain dumb - with all of the attention focused on athletes, with all of the stories around domestic violence (the latest being Dmitri Young) these guys still lose it and put their hands on their partners.

Jake with road rage - what's Rueben's excuse? roi- ...never mind, you can figure it out.


Indiana University's "top" WR, James Hardy, has been charged with domestic battery for an attack on his girlfriend and infant son. Police claim they found his girlfriend with a torn shirt and reddish marks on the back of her neck.

Hardy's defence team is vowing to fight the charges, claiming that he is totally innocent; though the 6 foot 7, 215 lb WR changed his original story that there had been no phyiscal confrontation to say that he pushed her after "she got in his face".

We'll slot this one right alongside Rueben's story - just plain dumb. The Romeo and Juliet reference? Hardy, who is 20, has been dating this woman since the age of 13 - 7 years. Isn't this another beautiful love story?

Alabama LB Juwan Simpson had a felony charge of possessing a stolen handgun reduced to a misdemeanor. Simpson could have faced 10 years in prison for the original charge; but with it being reduced to third-degree "receiving stolen property, he is now looking at up to a year in jail. Police found the gun, along with some marijuana when he was pulled over for driving erratically...I wonder if Jake's cheque run was actually...naaaaa it couldn't be.

File this one under whacked - I don't think I need to explain.

I've got to book. Have a great one peeps.

Educational pursuits will pay off. Attend a lecture or surf the net in search of information to help you move forward with an idea. Extra money can be yours if you create a service or product. 3 stars

Hazel, I hope things are groovy in your world - have a great weekend.
