When I’m running things there will be a “Dumb-Ass Hall of Fame” for athletes.
We could start it with a few of the dumbest. And now we’ve got a new edition, Ladainian Tomlinson of the San Diego Chargers. (If you haven’t seen the best/worst music video ever done by an athlete, click on the read More button at the bottom right of this post. But first some automatic entries in the Dumb-Ass Hall of Fame.
We could start it with automatic entries into the Hall of Fame: Michael Vick, at the time the highest paid player in the NFL. Dumb-ass threw it all away on animal cruelty. Originally tried to blame it on his nephew. Classy. Went to prison for a couple of years.
Now he’s in the only place worse than prison. Philadelphia.
Then there’s the former all-pro receiver for the New York Giants, Plaxico Burress. Brought a loaded gun with him to a nightclub, in the waist band of his sweat pants. What could go wrong with that? The gun went off and he shot HIMSELF in the leg. Then he went to prison. For shooting himself in the leg.
And of course O.J. Simpson, after killing two people and getting away with it, goes to a casino in Las Vegas where is a camera or two with a gun to kidnap and rob a dude that had a few of his items. Went to jail for that. Killing 2 people? No problem. Kidnapping a robbing with a weapon. Jail. Here’s the headline: OJ Simpson and his golf buddies ‘burst into casino like commandos‘ Come on! What an insult to “commandos”. His golf buddies? That’s thug life.
And then,of course, there’s King Dumb Ass: Maybe use that muscle to delete your texts.
And that brings us to a special wing in the “Dumb-Ass Hall of Fame”. When amazing athletes think they can sing. And worse, sing, or rap, and make a video for it. In this case, the San Diego Charger’s LaDainian Tomlinson, depending on which story you read, made the gayest, most low rent, incredibly stupid song/video for a Nike Commercial a couple of years ago. They never aired it, I’m guessing because it would have stopped all Nike shoe buying completely. But now it’s leaked. By Nike? Probably.
And now with the Chargers losing their playoff game against the New York Jets, L.T. is left with only the worst video ever made by an athlete.
