and strangely, not one of them is "stop."
I find it oddly appropriate that with the draft mere days away, a former Steelers 1st round
bust draft pick is making news. Those of you who stalk scan the uber-sports blog Deadspin religiously like I do will already know this - but for those of you who don't, former Steelers RB Tim Worley was both arrested for DUI and tasered last Sunday.
[Side Note: Thankfully, the interweb gods have this under control and his Wikipedia page has already been updated...]Now first of all - What kind of person gets busted for DUI on a Sunday? Isn't that like a violation of one of the Commandments? Thou shalt not let the po' po' catch thou ridin' dirtay on the holy day? Ok, so it was Sunday morning at 3:30 AM. But it's a lot funnier when I leave that part out...
Second of all - In what alternate universe must Tim Worley be living where forcibly resisting arrest doesn't get you tasered? Dude, if they're trying to put some cuffs on you, let 'em do it. I mean judging by your short-lived career and now this, you need all the brain cells you can get.
Which brings me to my last point - Why the hell am I writing about this? Is it Monday? It must be. This is bush league. I'm going back to bed...
'Til next time...remember kids, getting tasered is no fun. Respect the law. Watch the video.
