Plaxico Burress is launching a men’s "luxury hosiery line." Between this, Datbull 4 Life, and Andre Rison being featured on the 30 for 30 "Broke," it has been a banner year for Sparty wide receivers.
Plaxico Burress has learned that prison has benefits. He discovered that he enjoys learning through reading.
"It was one of those deals that kind of grew on me," Burress told Newsday. "Ever since I went to prison and in my spare time, I try to read as much as I can. Having a lot of time, I found something that became something I love to do. And that's gather information through reading, expanding my knowledge. I never would have known that if I didn't go through what I went through."
"Reading never would have been on my radar," he told Newsday. "Now my wife comes into the room at night and I'm reading my book, she just starts laughing. It's something that gives me peace."
The article reaffirms my faith in humanity.
As the recent episode of "Spartans Looking Dumb" comes to a close with the frat-whooping players getting charged, I was wondering if we had a legitimate consensus for the reasoning behind that "University's" ability to produce so many embarrassments. For other examples, I don't think we need to look far. Professional football player who shoots himself in the leg in a club with an unregistered weapon, this guy, Zach Randolph, to name a few. Is it consistent cabin fever, stuck up there in farmland? Do they all want to get back to the days of burning couches and therefore make bad decisions to reminisce? Standard Spartan jealousy?
Haha, Priceless. I think this made my night, completely out of nowhere too. (I just hope this doesn't ruin it for anyone who was going to watch it anyways.) Bob Saget is hilarious too btw.
According to Yahoo! Sports, former MSU standout and current Giants WR Plaxico Burress has pleaded guilty to weapons charges under a deal to serve two years in prison.
Hah, I read this on a neutral NFL board:
"Could this be the first time a team has literally 'shot themselves in the leg'?"
