Somebody put out the Asshat signal!

I will preface this by saying that PittGirl has never tried marijuana in her life.  Some of you are going, “Good girl.” (Hiya, Daddy!) and some of you are going, “OMG.  What a pilgrim.”  (Hiya, Skippy!).

Santonio Holmes, realizing he hasn’t done anything truly asshatworthy since he let some chick, at least I assume it was a chick, snap a photo of his freshly showered giant penis, decided it was time to live up to his Burgh Blog moniker once again.

Steelers receiver Santonio Holmes will be charged with possession of marijuana after three blunts were found inside his vehicle Thursday afternoon in Uptown, Pittsburgh police said.

Holmes was stopped about 4 p.m. near the intersection of Centre Avenue and Mario Lemieux Place by officers searching for a vehicle with a similar description.

When officers approached Holmes’ vehicle, they smelled an odor of burning marijuana, police said.

  • Smoking marijuana when you’re being paid millions of dollars to keep yourself in top physical shape?  Asshattery.
  • Risking an arrest knowing it could get you suspended which affects your whole team?  Asshattery.
  • Driving while smoking marijuana, instead of doing it in your home where you’re less likely to get caught?  Asshattery.
  • Driving while smoking marijuana, greatly affecting your response time, greatly raising your chances of taking an innocent life?  Asshattery!

So now we’ve got The Asshat on public drunkenness, babymama choking, giant public penis, AND misdemeanor drug possession.

Should we rename him Super Asshat?  He can be like a superhero for the doofi of the world.

Yeah, then the doofi of the world could put out the Asshat signal all, “Super Asshat?!  Help!  Help me shove my head further up my ass!”

Gawd.

    let’s hold on a sec.

    james harrison can beat his baby mama and maintain a position on the team, but fans want holmes to get bounced because he smokes pot and lacks the intelligence to not tell the cops that he puffed a blunt or two the day before?

    I now have to totally agree with you PittGirl. Santonio is a huge AssHat. I wash my hands of him.
    He’s too damn dumb and selfish to be a Steeler.

    PG,

    I understand this perspective. Yet, if it’s the opinion of the players that medicinal marijuana use is the most effective and efficient way of managing week-to-week pain following a game, then – while it’s still against the law – I wholeheartedly agree with Gab that it’s preposterous to villify them for it. We can villify the Asshat for baking in his auto, but these players know their own bodies. Let them decide what the proper therapy is, not us from our couches.
