There will not be a manhunt for the shooter because this idiot shot himself in the thigh. I guess it’s safe to say that if you have Burress in your fantasy football league, his status has been downgraded to “Probably Stupid.”
I swear to God, if he says he was “cleaning his gun . . . “
NEW YORK – New York Giants wide receiver Plaxico Burress was wounded in an apparent accidental shooting on Friday and released from hospital on Saturday, the NFL team said.
Burress, who had already been ruled out of Sunday’s game against the Washington Redskins because of a hamstring strain, suffered a wound to his right thigh, the team said in a statement that did not reveal other details of the incident.
“We are aware of the fact that Plaxico was involved in an apparent accidental shooting last night,” the Giants said. “Plaxico suffered a wound to his right thigh. (H/T – )
Aaannnddd . . . dumbass!
This is the apex of an almost perfect season for the Giants receiver. He’s been suspended for missing team meetings, fined $45,000 for abusing officials, and was benched for missing a physician’s appointment. Now, he shoots himself in the thigh. Congratulations Plaxico, you’re this year’s MVP – Most Valuable Putz.
