But it's not like he thinks he's part of the show or anything.

At least he wasn't humping the air.

Today's stupidest thing you'll ever see today.

Why are all these NFL players failing tests for Adderall? They probably aren't, the league just can't say what the drug was, so players claim Adderall. It all started with Garrett Hartley who admitted (claimed?) to taking Adderall back in 2009.

Another over-achieving Red Wings draft pick...

Re: Riley Sheahan

.30!!?? Holy shit, is that a high BAC! What should be concerning to the Red Wings, and to Mr. Sheahan himself is that he still had the cognitive motor skills to remain upright at that BAC, let alone get behind the wheel of a car and drive it well enough to simply get a DUI, rather than instantly driving into the nearest building or telephone pole. To have a tolerance like that indicates some form of alcoholism, rather than just piss poor judgment.

I know plenty of kids in college who probably had a BAC of .30 at one time or another. I'm guessing I did. None of us ended up alcoholics (as far as I know). However, we also weren't stupid enough to get behind the wheel. We could stand upright, sure, just not for very long.

No-Huddle Wednesday!

If there was a Wednesday huddle, then I'd post this :

The Washington Football Team once is nice.

You clearly haven't seen Slapshot! recently.

Really, did anyone expect him to wear a purple Teletubby costume while sober? And carrying someone else's ID is a perfectly sensible way to mask the identity of one who might want to be Tinky Winky.

Manchester City's Carlos Tevez apparently lost his paystub. Count the figures to the left of the decimal, and weep. Something about seeing the pay in such a mundane setting is shocking. Not to mention the 24 GBP fine -- I'm sure that hurt.

Hope the server bounced back up gracefully

I'm sure that I did a few times, as well. I spent them face down or hugging a toilet, not walking and/or driving. The point is that someone who can maintain "control" at that blood alcohol level has a pretty developed tolerance. And that speaks of alcoholism.

We could stand upright, sure, just not for very long.

Isn't that kind of what I was saying?

Why was he driving? He had to...he couldn't walk...

Which brings to mind Milkman Dan, of course.

It was probably safer.

For every mile walked drunk, turns out to be eight times more dangerous than the mile driven drunk. To put it simply, if you need to walk a mile from a party to your home, you're eight times more likely to die doing that than if you jump behind the wheel and drive your car that same mile.

Not for other people.

I just heard an ad for a AAA service in Jacksonville that will tow a drunk's car home and let him ride with the driver.
