Sheesh, That's A Lot of Noise Over a Class C Misdemeanor

From the Dallas Morning News' website's homepage: Irvin faces drug paraphernalia charge "Former Cowboy Michael Irvin, a semifinalist for the Pro Football Hall of Fame, was arrested Friday in Plano and charged with possession of drug paraphernalia, police said. Police pulled Mr. Irvin over for speeding in the northbound lanes of the Dallas North Tollway south of Spring Creek Parkway about 3:30 p.m. A computer check showed that Mr. Irvin had an outstanding warrant for speeding in Irving. A search of Mr. Irvin's car turned up drug paraphernalia, police said. Mr. Irvin was arrested and booked into Plano city jail. He was also given a citation for speeding. He paid the Irving fine and bond on the drug charge and was released at about 4:45 p.m., police said. It was unclear Sunday what the amount of the bond was. "

Another one of our "fine, outstanding" professional athletes. I sure hope my kids look up to him as a hero. Sheesh.

Do kids these days even know who Michael Irvin is? He hasn't played in a decade. The only time he's in the news is when he's in trouble with the law. I take that back...he recently played a prison inmate/football player in The Longest Yard...I'm sure he had to do a deep character study for that one! (He even wore his old number).

..come on now, his own children know him and he is a good protective father - got rid of his friend's pipe by throwing it into his car - didn't want his children to see it...

...a real hero!

He caught footballs for a living.....He is not Jesus or Yoda!!!

If you let your kids look up to this or any other sports icon, you are begging for trouble.

D-R-U-G-S. Anybody else, and it wouldn't be a "sheesh."
