I wouldn't worry. According to the article, it'll take weeks to figure out if you even have a secret.

Well, I'm excited to be in school soon. After over a year of being neither employed, nor in school, the prospect of having to apply myself again is electrifying.

Hartnell was on the Score in a Cabbie segment this week; he hasn't had it cut since the season ended, from what I can tell.

You could have been a star with the Steelers, instead you walked...and now you'll sit for 2 years...

Giants surprised and saddened by Burress plea
Quote:
ALBANY, N.Y. — Plaxico Burress' decision to plead guilty to a weapons charge and accept two years in prison surprised his former New York Giants teammates and left at least one claiming the Super Bowl hero was punished too severely.

Browns receiver Donte' Stallworth served 30 days in jail for running over and killing a man while driving drunk. Former Falcons quarterback Michael Vick served 18 months in prison for torturing animals and running a dogfighting ring for years.

Burress shot himself in the leg, but he was illegally carrying a gun in a nightclub when he did it.

"I think they wanted to set an example, which sucks," Giants receiver Steve Smith said. "He did something to himself. He didn't hurt anybody else."

Roughly 18 months after Burress caught the game-winning pass in the Super Bowl and nine months after accidentally shooting himself in a Manhattan night club, he pleaded guilty in a New York City court on Thursday to one count of attempted criminal possession of a weapon.

Burress, who faced a minimum of 3 1/2 years in prison if convicted at trial, instead agreed to a two-year prison term and must serve at least 20 months. Burress, who was released by the Giants in April, will be formally sentenced on Sept. 22.

New York Mayor Michael Bloomberg, who has waged a long campaign against illegal guns, had publicly castigated Burress for carrying his .40-caliber weapon.

"You never think somebody who was at that magnitude would get time like this," Smith said. "I heard the mayor, whatever he said."

Burress' attorney, Benjamin Brafman, called the case "a perfect example about how bad judgment can have very serious consequences" and said Burress was treated more harshly because he is a celebrity.

To be fair, his mistake was carrying a gun in the waistband of his sweatpants, not signing with the Giants.

Absolutely, of course.

I just didn't like the way he left the Steelers, so I take great pleasure (sick, I know...) with today's news.

In other news, did anybody see Ochocinco (another POS) kicking tonight???

Ochocinco boots extra point as Graham sits
Quote:
FOXBOROUGH, Mass. Chad Ochocinco added another wrinkle to his colorful career by kicking an extra point Thursday night.

Cincinnati's all-time leader in catches and yards receiving connected after the Bengals first-half touchdown as coach Marvin Lewis held out Shayne Graham as a precaution because of a groin injury. Ochocinco also kicked off to start the second half.

" 'Esteban' Ochocinco is back, the most interesting footballer in the world," Ochocinco said. "Everyone has to remember, I've always said that soccer is my No. 1 sport. I think Ronaldinho would be proud of me right now."

Graham, fourth in NFL history in field goal accuracy, signed a one-year contract for this season after being named the Bengals franchise player.

"Shayne has been nursing a tender groin," Lewis said, "and it was determined in pregame warmups that it just wasn't good enough to have him go in a preseason game."

Graham was in uniform Thursday night. Last Friday night, he kicked an extra point and missed his only field goal attempt in a 17-7 loss to the New Orleans Saints.

Ochocinco had never attempted a kick in exhibition or regular-season games during his eight NFL seasons, the first seven under the name Chad Johnson. But he has kicked in practices.

I'm upset more than anything with the Burress news. It's absolutely insane that owning a gun nets him more time in jail than Vick and Stallworth combined.

I think Burress is more to blame than Bloomberg, no?

In the end everyone is responsible for their own actions, and Burress broke the law. But that doesn't mean Bloomberg's anti gun vendetta is any more appropriate.

I really can't comment on Bloomberg's anti-gun vendetta, but I will agree that it might be a little excessive.
