Who gets these assignments to do these stories? And more importantly, why don’t more of us think stuff like this up?
Imagine this poor guy having to pour over hundreds of pictures and videos of the NFL’s newest cheerleaders, trying to find the best looking ones. How hard would that be? And so continues our love/hate relationship with the guys at the BleacherReport.com: 7 Best-Looking Rookie Cheerleaders from Around the NFL
By now, most of you have heard that the Minnesota Vikings Adrian Peterson was taken into custody by Houston police over the weekend for resisting arrest. This incident happened at a nightclub where the star running back allegedly asked for a drink of water (what?) after police showed up at the bar to close it down for the night. Cops say Peterson exchanged words with an off-duty officer (who probably thinks water isn’t a manly enough drink and was probably dehydrated himself at the time) working security and next thing you know AD is “resisting arrest.”
Something smells fishing about this all the way around, so we’ll wait until more information comes out to comment, but below is the only known video of Peterson’s arrest. Thanks to TMZ for the video!
Does the NFL have a drinking problem? Last week, Justin Blackmon set a league rookie record for BAC after being pulled over for DUI with a whopping 0.24%. And then Vikings fullback Jerome Felton was found passed out drunk in a fast food drive thru lane in the middle of thenight. And now Giants tackle David Diehl was arrested for DWI in Queens with a BAC of 0.18% . . . more than twice the legal limit. At over 300 lbs, Diehl is off our BAC Rankings Chart for how many drinks it would take to get that drunk, but if he was two, 150 lb guys, each one would have to drink 7 drinks in the hour before the breathalyzer test. So, at least at this point, it does not appear this was an “Oops, I had a glass of wine with friends” kind of incident. Unless, of course, the glass is the size of your head and you chugged it.
Diehl, who makes over $1.2 million a year, was picked up by police after running into several cars Sunday night about 8 PM.
According to at least one source, Diehl, who has relatives from Croatia, had tweeted about watching Croatia’s 3-1 victory over Ireland in soccer’s Euro 2012 Sunday afternoon.
