Funniest Sports Story of the Day: One NFL Player Accuses Other NFL Player of Stealing His Stuff

By Debbie Schlussel
It’s always entertaining to read about one multi-millionaire stealing the dirty underwear and money clip of another multi-millionaire:

New Lions running back Rudi Johnson said former Lions running back Tatum Bell stole two of his bags from the locker room Monday.
Johnson said when the bags were returned Tuesday, they were empty – missing his identification, credit cards, about $200 in cash and some undergarments.
“All this happened once he got released,” Johnson said Wednesday as he came off the practice field. “He came here to get some stuff out of his locker. That’s when he scooped the bags up. Some real shyster, conniving stuff, man.”


NFLer Tatum Bell Took Fellow Player’s Bag, Money

Bell said it was an honest mistake. He said he intended to pick up some bags for a former teammate, and he grabbed the wrong ones. He said he never opened the bags and doesn’t have anything of Johnson’s.
“I ain’t no thief,” Bell told the Free Press in a phone interview. “I ain’t never been one, and I ain’t never going to be one. It was all a misunderstanding.”

But apparently it isn’t. There are a lot of inconsistencies in the story, like how the bags were returned completely empty. And the Detroit Lions are looking over the video like it was game tape. Read more.
I love a story like this. It’s funny. It’s entertaining. And it’s a nice apolitical break.
Oh, and here’s a little appropriate old school musical video accompaniment:

Kwame Kilpatrick is a now a felon. It looks like The National Felony League has another felon on its roster of players.
That video was terrible. By “hip hop” standards there were wasnt anyone with tatoos. No INK!! What a sin!!! How times have a changed.
Isnt Deion a preacher like MCHammer, his broke mentor? Or did Arsenio remake him over again?
