Another liquored-up kicker

By now you’ve heard about this (, the latest adventure in kookiness involving a Colts kicker.

Personally, I don’t know why everyone’s so upset. Who hasn’t gotten the urge to drink 947 beers and go swimming in the canal running through downtown Indianapolis at 5 o’clock on a chilly October morning?

And, hey, at least Pat McAfee was honest. When the cops asked how much he’d had to drink, he said, “A lot, ’cause I am drunk.”

Of course, you have to balance that against his clear lack of skills as a meteorologist.

His response when asked why he was wet, on a clear night in Indy: “It’s raining.”

Not even Mike Vanderjagt would have said that.
