Bullets Continue to Be Attracted to Giants WRs

If you took out a prop bet on two New York Giants wide receivers suffering embarrassing superficial gun wounds in the same year, you should be looking at contacting an estate attorney and good accountant right now because you just got paid, son. ↵

↵Taye Biddle, the Giants wide receiver who ironically took Plaxico Burress' spot on the roster after Plax's little "incident," is fine after being shot in the hand while visiting his family in Decatur, Alabama. Details are sketchy, and no one's been charged in the crime, but Giants wide receivers are treating gunshot wounds like paper cuts, and it is simultaneously impressive and depressing. Gunshot wounds impress some people more than others. Normal people would likely be screaming "OMG I GOT SHOT" and make a big deal out of it. Not Biddle, who from the sound of the story probably related the story to friends like this. ↵

↵"How was your weekend?" ↵

↵

↵"Good, man. But I got shot in the hand. That kind of sucked." ↵

↵

↵"Word. Wanna go see Taken? Liam Neeson jabs some dude in the legs with electrodes." ↵

↵

↵It should be noted that someone else shot Biddle, and that he did not accidentally shoot himself, and that this means he avoided the Plaxico double: he both reported the crime and had it treated immediately instead of calling around to hospitals, getting a hamburger, playing a few rounds of golf, and getting in a quick weight room session before actually going to the hospital and lying his ass off about what happened. (I'm exaggerating about that ... I think.) ↵

↵Also, if you were planning on defending the Giants' offense next year by shooting the wide receivers, consider pressuring Eli Manning instead. These men laugh at your puny "bullets." ↵
