Those of you that know me well (wait a second, that's basically everybody that is reading this right now... never mind) know that this story has a special resonance for me.
If you've never been in jail, you lucky li'l devils you, let me compare the feelings expressed in this ESPN article to the sense of relief you get after finishing an extremely difficult semester, and it's 85 and sunny out, and you all of a sudden have all day to DRIVE AROUND IN A DAMN RANGE ROVER WITH YOUR FRIENDS YOU HAVEN'T SEEN FOR TWO YEARS. I mean, yeah, unfortunately Drew Rosenhaus is also there, but still... pretty awesome.
Look, I don't love Plaxico Burress. I think he's a great wide receiver. I don't think he'd be a good fit with the Bears. But I do think that we as fans should give this guy every opportunity to prove that he's done his time - by the way, it was an insanely unfair sentence - and is ready to return to society and redeem himself.
Plax, wherever you end up, I wish you the best.
Oh, and one other thing, bro. STAY OUT OF THE DAMN CLUB.
