@3_Dots I think Bababooey is referring to Braylon’s DWI arrest last night. He blew a .16… impressive!

Drunk Athletes and Their Rides
Don Delco on September 21st, 2010 AT 12:39 PM

Perhaps we just don’t get it. I love my 2006 Ford Fusion, but I do not need to be seen in it. It’s a quality automobile. It looks nice. I keep it looking nice. Plus, it’s almost paid off.

I also enjoy to go out and have some adult beverages.

But I don’t need to drive my Fusion around town — twice the legal limit drunk — to show it off.

Maybe since we’re non-multi millionaire athletes, we just don’t get it.

Early Tuesday morning Braylon Edwards was arrested on charges of driving while intoxicated. He was driving his Range Rover SUV with, apparently, excessive tinting on its windows.

Edwards was drunk and wanted to go home, but he was in New York City. There are hundreds of cabs within a city block, even at 5 a.m. The Jets even have a program where players can call a car service and get rides.

Maybe Edwards just wanted to be seen in his Range Rover. Of course, with “excessive tinting” on his windows, to be seen seems a difficult experience.

I don’t want to pile on Edwards here. He is not the only rich athlete to make this decision. It just continues to baffle me why these guys, who can afford $50,000 earrings and $100,000 cars, won’t pay a few hundred bucks for a limo, $40 for a cab ride home or make a rookie be a designated driver.

@MarcSessler Among other things, the Browns need a franchise quarterback. They could get one next April.

Alex Mack Claims Shaun Smith Grabbed His Privates
Barry McBride on September 20th, 2010 AT 9:24 PM

The Associated Press reports this evening, in the type of story that only seems to happen to the Cleveland Browns, that starting center Alex Mack is less than pleased with one-time Brown, one-time Bengal, one-time Brady Quinn taunter Shaun Smith.

Mack claims that during a running play in the second quarter, Smith, well, grabbed Mack’s privates.

”I don’t think he should be able to do that,” Mack told the AP. ”I’m still fired up about it.”

That Smith grabbed Mack’s naughty bits isn’t likely to be a move he learned from Romeo Crennel, but it’s not that unexpected from this particular source, at one time a co-host on a Browns program inflicted on fans via Larry Dolan’s cable TV channel. The talkative Smith was always more inclined to figure out ways to gain competitive advantage that didn’t require actual work.

Some players on the Browns used to have a nickname for Smith. Whereas Gerard Warran used to be “Big Money”, Shaun Smith was called “Free Money”, because he didn’t work very hard for it.

Smith tried hard to cleverly dance around the question: ’I don’t recall doing anything like that”, said in his best appearing-before-Congress voice. “I’m not known for being a dirty player or anything like that, so I don’t know what that was all about.”

Other than a slight error with tense, Smith is correct: He wasn’t known for being a dirty player. He is now.

@CoraxSays We understand Davis is getting more reps in practice, but the club won’t tip their hand about how they’re going to use him.

@MarcSessler Nice post! The Browns are fortunate that there’s a bumper crop of quarterbacks available next year.
