Another Saturday night and I ain’t got nobody. I’ve got some money ’cause I just got paid. Now how I wish I had someone to talk to, I’m in an awful way. -Cat Stevens
Public Service Announcement: Ok, here we go! Another drunk driving athlete. Don’t these cats have any money? It always amazes me how these folks just refuse to get a taxi. This time it’s Carl Eller. One-eyed, one-horned, flyin’ purple people eater Carl Eller. Six time Pro Bowler Carl Eller. Four time Super Bowler Carl Eller. 1970′s All Decade Team Carl Eller. 1971 Defensive Player of the Year Carl Eller.
Minnesota Vikings legend Carl Eller has been convicted of assault on a police officer and refusing to take a sobriety test. The cops say Eller attacked and threatened them after they tried to pull him over April 9, for suspected drunken driving. The good news is, Carl is now a treatment counselor and has spoken publicly to groups about the problems of chemical dependency. Put that in the practice what you preach folder.
Peace out homies. Six two and Even!
