Super Bowl Super Crimes

Yesterday I read a rather alarming stat…since entering the NFL, nearly 35% of all players in the league have been arrested, as noted in the book Boys Gone Wild, by Professor of Sociology Eric Carter. But don’t go looking at it thinking you’re going to find a gaggle of half-naked hot co-ed men on spring break…you’ll be sorely disappointed. Now I won’t get into the morality of whether or not professional athletes be held to higher standards and blah, blah, blah [because frankly I believe that everyone should do their mothers proud and be on their best behavior]…I’d much rather give you some fun ammunition and random criminal records to spew out during the game and impress your Super Bowl Buddies. 

So as we all get excited to over-indulge in beer, wings, pigs in a blanket and other delicious artery-clogging treats, here’s an inside look at some of the Steelers and Packers that fall into that 35% and will be taking the field during the Super Bowl this Sunday. Consider this post as a sign of my bitterness for the Bears losing to Green Bay a few weeks ago resurfacing. Yes, the loss may be nearly two weeks old, but the sadness is still fresh.
You can cheer for public pee-ers, an alleged rapist and intoxicated mascots. Or you can root for druggies, drunks and girlfriend beaters. The choice is yours.
Enjoy the game, dear friends. And remember, Spring Training is right around the corner…so it’s only a matter of time before Chicago sports fans can have their hearts broken once again.

  • Geez, what ever happened to the good old days. I hate to think football was always filled with such, well, tough guys.
