Just another scene from a club...

Shortcuts from a nightclub in Manhattan..



Headline of the millennium? The British gutter press would be patting themselves smugly on the back if they had come up with this one:
GIANT JERK SHOOTS HIMSELF - BURRESS FUMBLES GUN AND NAILS LEG From the classy NY Post

Girl in nightclub: ''So is that a gun in your pocket or are you just happy to see me?''
Plax: ''Funny you ask...''

Another headline from the NY Post:
''TOOMER EAGER TO GET BACK ON FIELD WITH BURRESS''
Subheadline might read: ''Not so eager to go clubbing with him''.

Giants injury report:
Out: Burress - Leg.

Old sayings..
''A source said a guard came over in the aftermath, emptied the gun's chamber and then gave it back to Burress.''
What's the old saying, 'Closing the barn door after the horse has bolted?' That can now be updated to 'Unloading Plax's gun and giving it back to him after he has shot himself in the leg.' Rolls off the tongue.

More on the story..
''Sources said Pierce drove Burress to Cornell Medical Center at 2 a.m. and then left immediately. It's not clear where Burress was in the time between the shooting and his arrival at the hospital.''

Answers to the above:
  1. Drinking
  2. Shooting
  3. Drinking and shooting
  4. Trying to walk it off


Finally, has anyone approached Dick Cheney for comment?

I think this one counts as hilarious. I've been pretty much desensitised to any non-fatal acts of stupidity by NFL players. While I didn't expect Plaxico to shoot himself, I can't say I was shocked to hear this story.
