Plaxico -- I'll Watch the Super Bowl From Prison!

2/4/2011 9:15 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Just a few years ago, Plaxico Burress was playing in the Super Bowl -- this year, the former NY Giants superstar will be allowed to watch the big game from the confines of a NY prison ... TMZ has learned.

According to the Public Information Officer for the New York State Department of Correctional Services, Burress -- who's serving time on gun charges -- has full TV privileges and will be able to enjoy the game in the company of his fellow inmates.

We're told the prison has no plans for an official Super Bowl party ... because it's a PRISON!!!

And with all the talk of Plax signing with an NFL squad when he gets out of the joint in June ... it's possible he could be playing in the big game next year.

As far as illegal to rehire this felon.... maybe it should be illegal to watch a pro football game with a felon in it. That would push the responsibility onto whom it belongs: the fans. As long as you cheerleaders keep watching these felons throw a ball down the field, the owners will keep paying their salaries.

Plain and simple plax did do something wrong but his sentence was way harsh for shooting himself in the leg lol child predators and molestors serve less time! To the person who wrote first seriously get a life !

After shooting some hoops at the White House, Zero will say the
police "acted stupidly", and Plaxico will sign a huge contract.

The Truth    

You perfect, unforgiven, christian,catholic,holier than thou peons! Have never done anything wrong. to sit back and wish for someone to not work or get paid for something they love to do is just hateful! Yes! What Mr.Burris did was wrong,and he's paying for it! He didn't shoot anyone but himself,he didn't molest any children or have gay sex with any little boys! He had a permit to carry, but was not valid where this incident took place. Yes, he will play in the NFL again because it's all about money anyway! HE WITHOUT SIN CAST THE FIRST STONE!!! Eat your heart haters!!!
