The Asshat is dumber than previously thought.

Santonio Holmes will be getting his first NFL start this Thursday against the Browns and was interviewed in the Post-Gazette about it.

Santonio went on and on about how he was going to cherish his first start, remember everything about his first start, can’t wait for his first start … then he said about his family and friends:

“None of them know I’m starting.  I’m going to keep it quiet.”


I can’t even begin to describe how stupid it is that he thinks his friends and family won’t know he’s starting.  I had been feeling badly lately about branding the boy an asshat, but Santonio, if you’re going to continue being an asshat I really have no choice.

    If Santonio is an Asshat, it stands to reason that his family and friends are probably Asshats as well so I wouldn’t be surprised it they DON’T know he’s starting. Stupid is as stupid does…

    You’re assuming his friends can read.

    maybe he was trying to be facetious.

    like, “hey guys. nobody knows i cant hang on to a football. dont tell anyone, i’m going to keep it quiet. same for the dancing thing.”
