We need to speed this week up guys...RIGHT? So, let's have some fun today.
This is an idea I came up with like 4 seconds ago and I'll admit that I haven't really put much thought into it. It could be a lot of fun or it could be a non-starter. Oh well...check this out:
So, Plaxico Burress helped the Giants win Super Bowl 42, right? Yes, but did you know he also shot himself in the leg inside of a nightclub while wearing sweat pants? I'm pretty sure that this shot also killed the Giants chances of repeating as Super Bowl Champions. Good Ole Plaxico served time in a New York State penitentiary and then was signed by Big Blue's "Little Bro" where he was one piece of the radioactive jig-saw puzzle known as the New York Jets locker room.
So, if you didn't know that was all true it would sound hilarious, right? RIGHT? Let's make some new hilarious player/coach antics that we could all witness next season.
Maybe something like...
Osi Umenyiora has been arrested for defrauding a non-profit organization in a suburb of Atlanta. Witnesses reported that the ny Giants DE had volunteered at "Meals-on-Wheels" in early March but complaints from those needing help began arriving at "Meals-on-wheels" almost immediately. Apparently, the meals that Mr. Umenyiora was responsible for delivering were not arriving to their promised recipients and a representative was immediately sent to Mr. Umenyiora's residence to investigate the "mystery of the missing meals". Mr. Umenyiora welcomed the investigator into his home, where upon entering the mystery was quickly solved. When asked why he hadn't delivered the 375 meals that were scattered around his home, Mr. Umenyiora explained that he wanted to take "test bites" out of each piece of food to make sure it was "tasty". He then asked the rep if he could help with the taste testing because "I'm kinda full right now".
Whatever...it may not be perfect but you guys are funny.
For the Football Gods - use both Giants and Patriots so this doesn't anger them.
Fear the lower case ny!
