The NFL Offseason Is Starting Out Well: Packers DT Letroy Guion Was Arrested With 357 Grams Of Weed & $190K In Cash
The officer who searched the truck also found more than $190,000 in one of the bags in which the marijuana was located, according to the police report. Both the currency and truck were seized and secured due to the amount of marijuana found.
According to the police report, Guion was “extremely uncooperative and hostile” while the truck was initially searched. The officer reported that Guion “kept coming toward the vehicle several times saying, ‘Hey man, my money is in there. Don’t let him take my money.'”
Guion then was secured in handcuffs.
The NFL players couldn’t even wait a whole week before getting into trouble. Last year’s offseason was a nightmare on a number of different levels, and it seems like the 2015 offseason will be just as exciting/depressing. In all honesty, where are you going with that much weed and that much money? I can maybe understand having one and not the other. If you just came from selling a bunch of weed you might have some cash on you, and if you just came from buying some weed you’d obviously have the weed on you. But 357 grams of weed AND $190K in cash? That’s outrageous. 357 grams is a lot of anything, never mind drugs. Maybe he doesn’t trust banks? I don’t know, but the rest of the ESPN article went on to say that Guion was currently in negotiations with the Packers on a long term deal. I have a feeling this story might delay that deal.
The Seattle Seahawks Beat The Green Bay Packers In Overtime To Advance To The Super Bowl In One Of The Craziest Games You’ll Ever See
I don’t have much analysis to provide here, but just know that if you missed the last 6 minutes of this game, you missed one of the most improbable comebacks in sports history. Seattle was down 12 with 5 minutes left and Green Bay had the ball after Russell Wilson threw his fourth interception of the day. That Green Bay was only up 12 with 5 minutes left when the opposing quarterback had thrown 4 picks (and they fumbled a kickoff) is still baffling, but we’ll save that story for another day. The rest of the game belonged to the Seahawks. They scored twice in the final 3 minutes, including a Hail Mary two point conversion that I still don’t believe I saw. Rodgers marched Green Bay down the field to set up a game tying field goal, but once Seattle won the coin toss in overtime, you knew it was over. If you’re a Green Bay fan, this is as heartbreaking as it gets. If you’re a Seattle fan, this might be the peak of the season. They have two weeks, but they’re going into the Super Bowl with key injuries on the defensive side against an offense that just cannot be stopped. To put into perspective how much this victory meant to Seattle, look at Russell Wilson’s interview after he won last year’s Super Bowl, starting at the 1:20 mark*:
Now watch Wilson’s interview after yesterdays victory:
That is someone who is physically and emotionally drained. Wilson and the rest of his teammates used everything they had to win that football game, and who knows what’s left in the tank for the Super Bowl. What I do know is that we saw one of the greatest games in sports history yesterday, and if the Super Bowl is half as good, we’ll all be in for a treat.
*Thanks to Grantland for pointing out the difference in the interviews.
Somebody get Tom Brady a wamburger. For someone who has so much, he really shouldn’t be so upset. So what your team lost. You’re still in first place in the AFC. Your schedule gets easier from here on out. You’re still married to a supermodel who makes more than you. Cheer up, old chap. Also, I hate you.
