Can you guess why Minnesota Timberwolves Forward Eddie "Not the Comedian" Griffin is smiling?

Oh, come on, take a guess. Give up? From the I-can't-believe-this-kind-of-thing-actually-happens Department, Griffin is in trouble again -- but not just any kind of trouble. Only the kind of trouble that a young, privileged, dumb-as-a-rock, extremely gifted but jerky pro athlete type can find. But this is a new nadir. This goes right up there with Najeh Davenport and Bryant McKinnie. No, wait. It's worse.

I believe this quote sums it up rather succinctly:

"He was masturbating himself going down that street. That's how the accident happened...He's paying attention to that video and all of a sudden he's shoveled somebody's car on the top of the sidewalk."

There has to be some logical explanation here. I'll bet he was just doing it for the kids.
So before we rush to judgement, let's let all the evidence come in. We can sit here all day and argue about who was masturbating what, but at the end of the day, what does that really solve?

Either way, here's hoping that Griffin, er, pulls himself together real soon. (Thank you! Thank you very much!)

This definately falls under the "waht-f**k-was-he-thinking?!?!" catefory.

Still it amuses me. I always like it when dumb-ass, cocky athletes get caught on tape doing stupid s**t like this! It's always good for a laugh!

I think I should point out at this juncture that I am still appreciating you.

roguehistorian: If you find this stuff amusing, you should check out They had a drunken Steve Nash photo up there the other day (should be in archives) that in itself is worth a visit.

Kieran: And you, sir, continue to be the wind beneath my wings. You, and Eddie Griffin, for setting up this post on a tee during an otherwise slow news day.
