NFL Star Plaxico Burris Shoots Himself in the Leg

 

New York Giants wide receiver Plaxico Burress has suffered a self-inflicted gunshot wound to the leg and was hospitalized for his injury as of Friday. The injury is reportedly non-life threatening.

Not many details are available. However, it is known that the incident occurred a short time after he was put out of the Washington Redskins game on Sunday due to a injured hamstring.

Domenik Hixon will play in Sunday's game as a replacement starter for Burress.

it strikes me that mebbe plax should spend some time learning gun safety, and put the ball down for an hour or two.

  Great...  
 
I just get into football last season, then I decide this season that I really like the Giants, especially Plaxico. That guy can catch anything!

Then this happens...grrr.

Should've stayed not liking football.

I wonder if it was intentional or not.

  Good  
 
We play them this week. It'll sure be nice knowing he'll be sitting on the sideline.

  If this...  
 
If this is the same story I read about elsewhere, the guy snuck (or otherwise brought) a gun unto a club. He hid it in his pants. It somehow discharged, hitting him in the thigh.

He definitely deserved what he got for several reasons.

1. He could've killed someone.
2. He brought a loaded gun into a club.
3. He didn't have the sense to put the safety on when he had a round in the chamber.
4. He had a round in the chamber.

"The injury is reportedly non-life threatening."


i dunno. seems like his case of stupid is pretty serious to me.

if what i have seen on the tube the last couple days saying that he was somewhere carrying a gun on him and it went off when he shouldn'ta been packin, then cart his arse off to jail, or whatever punishment is deemed correct.
