Superbowls, guns, and sweatpants. Oh my.

Former Giants wide receiver Plaxico Burress has been indicted on weapons charges that stemmed from the night he shot himself in the leg last year. Everything is looking down for Plax now. I mean at one point he caught the winning touchdown in a Super Bowl. Now he probably would trade that in for a Scott Norwood “Wide Right” than have to live with his current situation (well…maybe not quite).

Let’s take a look at all the things gone wrong in Plax’s life:

  • Facing up to 3.5 years in jail
  • Trading in a Giants jersey for a prison uni
  • He shot himself in the leg
  • He may go to jail for shooting himself in the leg

Let’s take a look at the reasons things have gone wrong:
Reason #3: he had a gun on him when he shouldn’t have.
Reason #2: he tucked said gun into his sweatpants.
Reason #1: he wore sweatpants to a club. Come on, Plax! Show some self respect. We know you can afford at least jeans.

If carrying a gun in a club, do not rely on the elastic band of your sweatpants to keep it concealed.
