    How do you get dehydrated when your doing nothing but drinking?

  3. Staff Sergeant Bandazewski says: May 24, 2009 8:34 PM

    Drink water and change your socks ya lush

    Shockey has always been his own worst enemy. He’s a hard partying guy, and I don’t think it’s going to end well for him. Sad on a human level.. but as far as football is concerned I’m glad he’s the Saint’s problem. And thanks for those 2 picks…

    LOL my great grandparents would even sniff that one out.. dehydration in Hard Rock Cafe???

  6. Cjd1 says: May 24, 2009 8:43 PM

    Irony, the Sunday summer Hard Rock parties used to be known as ReHab…
    maybe they still are.

  7. pfitz says: May 24, 2009 8:47 PM

    Dehydration?hungover maybe…

  8. AlaskanViking says: May 24, 2009 8:49 PM

    Dehydration? He must have been hitting the bong!!! (rolls eyes)

    How do you get dehydrated in a HArd Rock cafe in Vegas??

  10. RobJH says: May 24, 2009 8:51 PM

    Yeah, we was wasted, pure and simple.

  11. ICDogg says: May 24, 2009 9:04 PM

    Dehydrated in a drinking establishment. Awesome.

  12. tnsteve says: May 24, 2009 9:08 PM

    ummm…how precisely does one get dehydrated at a bar?

  13. hay1111 says: May 24, 2009 9:15 PM

    yeah, everybody eventually dehydrates if you drink enough alcohol

  14. spamsammich says: May 24, 2009 9:18 PM

    dehydration = too much booze
    what a dork-a-saurus

  15. nedirect says: May 24, 2009 9:18 PM

    I’ve never hear of anyone going to the hospital from a hangover. I have felt like I belonged there but never gone. this dude is soft.

  16. ahstoosu82 says: May 24, 2009 9:22 PM

    I’m glad he is healthy but dehydration in Las Vegas? Sounds like he went on a little bender before the off-season camps heat up.

  17. Shipoopi says: May 24, 2009 9:25 PM

    Sounds like he is on ecstacy. You don’t get rushed to the hospital for dehydration for any other reason other than being on drugs.

  18. bizurk says: May 24, 2009 9:28 PM

    Curiously, Shockey was diagnosed with “dehydration” by the same physician that diagnosed Lindsay Lohan with “exhaustion.”

  19. kwf says: May 24, 2009 9:31 PM

    “a brief bout with dehydration” and he’s on a stretcher?

  20. LL Live says: May 24, 2009 9:34 PM

    Nothing to be concerned about, he was just having a heavy period.

  21. fortysixand2 says: May 24, 2009 9:37 PM

    One mai tai too many?

  22. drunkhaloplayer says: May 24, 2009 9:40 PM

    Dehydration from bong water hehehehehehe

    “How do you get dehydrated when your doing nothing but drinking?”
    Alcohol’s a diuretic. You piss more out than you drink in.
    Seriously, are you idjits a bunch of teetotalers? Anybody’s who’s done any serious drinking knows booze dehydrates you. Any real boozehound knows to throw down a glass of water for each drink.
    Friggin’ amateurs. That goes double for Shockey.

  25. DynastyDriven77 says: May 24, 2009 10:11 PM

    Who gets taken out of a bar on a stretcher because of “dehydration” lol, he probably took too much X and freaked out. What a primadonna.

  26. PackDaddy says: May 24, 2009 10:20 PM

    shockey is garbage. can’t even stay healthy off the field either

  27. FlyingElvis says: May 24, 2009 10:22 PM

    More like overhydration

  28. Stormcat says: May 24, 2009 10:38 PM

    So does this mean that the Saints back-up TE will be an integral part of a Saints Super Bowl run that Shockey will have to watch from the owner’s box and, as a result, Shockey will demand a trade to another franchise only to underperform and be overcompensated?
    If so, I can’t wait.

  29. DJSlyBri says: May 24, 2009 10:50 PM

    I was at Hard Rock last month. Dehydration was the least of my worries. I am quite sure Senor Shockey was “over-hydrated.”

  30. joltheadporgy says: May 24, 2009 11:38 PM

    couldnt take the trip

  31. KGleits says: May 25, 2009 12:08 AM

    Is there a bigger bitch in the NFL than Jeremy Shockey??

  32. GregO says: May 25, 2009 12:20 AM

    I agree with shipoopi. The NFL needs to test him for ecstasy.

    This isn’t newsworthy. I would be giving you too much credit if I called it bad reporting. I realize that you guys suck but you’re even taking that to a new level with this drivel.

  35. kevin_b says: May 25, 2009 1:26 AM

    I’m no gynecologist, but it could be heavy flow. We should have traded down in round one (just a few slots) still taken Jenkins, but we could have acquired a box of Carefree and a bottle of Summer’s Eve from someone to keep Shockey in playing shape. We could have dropped to 16 and get the leftover supply from Ryan Leaf or to 18 and gotten a fresher batch from Cutler’s old locker.

  36. hulkamania says: May 25, 2009 2:19 AM

    Must’ve accidentally slipped himself those roofies he was saving for a lucky lady.

  37. axel foley says: May 25, 2009 5:28 AM

    he was wasted…typical

  38. houskat says: May 25, 2009 6:16 AM

    as a SAINTS fan,I’am already tired of this show me nothing guy…… 😦

  39. Hollywood Wags says: May 25, 2009 7:43 AM

    Maybe he took some mind altering drugs that caused him to forget to drink water while dancing to rave grooves for 5 hours straight…
    Or, maybe someone put something in his drink! Yeah, that’s what happened.

  40. screaming sheep says: May 25, 2009 8:26 AM

    O.K., about 90% of you have no clue. Tune into Tru TV sometime today, they are having the “Rehab, Party at the Hard Rock” marathon today. You will see how you dehydrate at the Hard Rock. They would have to bring me out on a stretcher too, I would have major fluid loss in there.

    Yeah, that’s something to really be proud of, buddy; being a “serious enough” drinker to know what us “amateurs” don’t.
    Maybe it’s because we’re all too busy not being an alcoholic, like you?
    It’s my goal in life to be a “real boozehound” like you.

  42. empty13 says: May 25, 2009 9:22 AM

    it doesnt take a lot of experience with liquor to know it dehydrates you. so does drinking a lot of pop.
    one doesnt have to be a lush to know this stuff.

  43. patsfan1776 says: May 25, 2009 10:35 AM

    Carried out on a stretcher from a nightclub, what a way to impress the ladies and strike fear in your opponents! At least it wasn’t from a self inflicted gun shot.

  44. Spike42 says: May 25, 2009 12:00 PM

    I lived in Vegas and I’m 360lbs……and I worked outside in the mid 90’s which is what the temp is there now and I was never close to getting dehydrated….PLEASE…athletes are all about the water and staying hydrated and would never let it get close to a point of passing out. They know when they’re dehydrated.

  45. Sea Otter says: May 25, 2009 1:11 PM

    Usually they call it, “exhaustion” when celebs get checked into the hospital after booze and drug sprees. “Dehydration” is a nice attempt at spin, but isn’t fooling anyone…

  46. ouzoholic says: May 26, 2009 10:43 AM

    No officer I wasn’t driving drunk I was just driving dehydrated.
