The more athletes use Twitter, the more their agents must want to chew holes in the furniture.
Take Cleveland Browns wide receiver Donte' Stallworth, who pleaded guilty to DUI manslaughter after killing a Miami man while driving drunk. NFL commissioner Roger Goodell suspended him for the entire 2009 season Thursday.
Stallworth reacted on his Twitter page thusly:
"I'M A LITTLE WOUNDED, BUT I'M NOT SLAIN; I WILL LAY ME DOWN 4A WHILE 2 BLEED, THEN I'LL RISE & FIGHT WITH YOU AGAIN." Then, in an aside to his teammates: "STAY HEALTHY, GOOD LUCK THIS SEASON!!! I'M WATCHIN EVERY F--KIN GAME."
Uh, you're a little mixed up, dude. Mario Reyes, the 59-year-old man you ran over in your Bentley, is the one who's slain. He will not rise again. He will not be watchin' every f--kin game.
Maybe being thrown in the lake will refresh your memory.
