"Responsible Professional" Plaxico Burress Doesn't Seem To Be Limping At All
Plaxico Burress turned himself in this morning for shooting himself in the leg with an unlicensed firearm, an act which is about a 17 on the 1 to 10 scale of stupidity. You may notice that Plax isn't using any crutches and isn't limping, so it would appear that the reports that he could be playing again in two weeks are in fact true...that is of course if the Giants actually want him back. At least according to Peter King, they don't.
Now, you may also be wondering how you defend a guy who shot himself in the leg with an unlicensed firearm and then apparently lied to police about his name and where he was shot. Why, you call him a responsible professional, of course.
Yes, because if anyone's a responsible professional, it's the guy who's been fined 40-50 times in four years for missing team meetings and flaking out on treatments. Oh, and that same responsible professional also won't pay for denting up a rental car.
What an idiot. I think in the end, Plax will somehow get out of this and go back to doing what he's best known for, shooting himself in the foot. Figuratively speaking, of course.
