No wonder he was so drunk. He was probably trying to forget he was watching soccer.

Sorry to hear about David Diehl's problem. I took him fishing on my charter boat out of Highlands, N.J. several years ago and found him be a really down-to-earth guy who was also very courteous to my daughter, Cyndi, who was my mate that day. You'd never have known he was a very successful and well-paid professional football player.

Idiot. The NFL has a 24-hour toll free hotline for car service for any player that thinks he is not fit to drive.

Watching Ireland lose was enough to make a man drink. That's pretty hammered for 9pm. He was stumbling a bit when he was walking, at least no one was hurt. I wonder how many drinks he had to get to .182 at 300lbs. I'd bet 15-20, but you never know....
