Mr. Briggs Goes To Traffic Court?
Posted by sportsmaven on August 30, 2007
Chicago Bears linebacker Lance Briggs sure knows how to keep things interesting. He is perhaps the one person that could give Rex Grossman a breather in the press. As usual, Mr. Briggs comes through again in the clutch, providing fans the oppotunity for yet another swirling dervish of entertainment straight from the Britney Spears/Lindsay Lohan School of Driving and Public Controversy.
Monday morning, 3am, Jet Black 2007 Lamborghini Murcielago valued at $350,000 on the Edens Expressway. What a recipe for disaster. Not sure what that Lamborghini did on Monday morning, but I cam imagine based on the skid marks on the scene and the condition of that fat sports car. While i’m not ready to brand Mr. Briggs as the second coming of Tank Johnson, I can assure you that almost nothing good happens at 3am.
Mr. Briggs, you are one lucky sucker, walking away from that wreck. I am reminded about the Deion Sanders story about when he played for the Dallas Cowboys, he tried to kill himself by driving off a highway overpass. His car miraculously landed on all 4 tires with not so much a scratch on his body. That’s when he found God and changed his life for the good. Now i’m not expecting Lance Briggs to go Christian on us before our eyes, but if this incident vaults him into another 160 tackles, 4 INT’s and 4 sacks, a Pro Bowl and a Super Bowl victory, then lets call it a wash.
