Cardinals’ Darnell Dockett Wins The Day By Live Tweeting Getting Pulled Over
Summertime, with occasional exceptions, is relatively uneventful. This can be a good thing - hypothetically, at least, there's more time to kick back and relax and enjoy the nice weather. However, if (again, dealing in hypotheticals here) you are tasked with writing about the interesting events of the day and there aren't really any interesting events of the day, summer loses some of that luster.
And while today wasn't quite one of those summer days, it wasn't a particularly packed one, either. With the NFL still locked out, the NBA probably soon to be locked out, baseball right in the middle of the year, the NHL finished for the season, college football and basketball out of season, etc., someone or something (in addition to Wimbledon) has to step up to fill that void, or else we're left with...a pretty boring sports time.
Fortunately, Arizona Cardinals defensive tackle Darnell Dockett is up to the task. Earlier today, he got pulled over while driving his Escalade. He wasn't happy about it, and took to Twitter to let his followers - and the undoubtedly many, many more who saw it through retweets - know about it. Oh, and he did it in real time. A sample of Dockett's offerings:
Indeed he was. Take solace in this, Darnell - your unpleasant episode provided maybe the most entertaining piece of news we'll see today. So...worth it, right?
