Who Ya' Gonna Call? Sweatpants Buster!
Word on the street is former New York Giants wide receiver, and sweat pants aficionado Plaxico Burress has applied for work release. If all goes well, Burress could be back on the streets by Sept. 9, just in time for the start of the NFL regular season.
You may remember Burress being involved in what the television show "The Boondocks" describes as a "N***a Moment" back in November of 2008, when he took a loaded gun to a Manhattan nightclub, stumbled, and accidentally shot himself in the leg. Prior to that incident, Burress was one of the top receivers in the NFL, and made the game-winning touchdown catch, helping the Giants win their first Super Bowl in almost twenty years.
The NFL has stated that they won't suspend Burress any further, and at 33 years old, Burress could still have some productivity left.
