It was a rough and confusing day for me. My tooth hurts like hell, my head hurts worse and I am simply dumbfounded by the actions today of both Plaxico Burress and John McCain. No, Plaxico is not McCain's Republican running mate, some experienced politician from our country's most sparsely populated state is.
Plaxico was suspended for 2 weeks (1 game plus the Giants bye week) and docked 2 weeks pay ($235k) for insubordination. He skipped two days of practice and didn't tell the team about it because of what he says was a family emergency. After reading about 65 pages of his new "self serving" book "Giant" about his life, I totally know this excuse is complete crap. I forgive him though because he caught the game winning touchdown in Super Bowl XLII.
He could streak naked on meth through a crowd of nuns walking through Times Square and I would forgive him.
Equally confusing and bizarre to Plax's behavior was John McCain's call today for the Friday night debate to be postponed so both candidates could help solve the nation's financial crisis. This makes no sense to me? How exactly could these two senators help solve the nation's crisis? Are they are on banking committee?
What is going on with this guy? I could see a call for postponing the debates if they were scheduled on September 11, 2001 or if someone famous was assassinated or something, but this makes less sense than Plaxico's excuse ... What is he thinking?
I know these two men are separated by 200 years of age, but they are frankly very similar because of just how confusing they acted today.
