More misadventures for Santonio, Twitter style

On Wednesday’s edition of ESPN’s Jim Rome Is Burning, Rome has a classic “Final Burn” regarding the perils of Twitter, as viewed from the perspective of Steelers receiver Santonio Holmes, who recently invited another Twitter user to commit suicide.

But the “kill urself” message isn’t the only one that could raise some eyebrows for the league and the team.  As a reader points out, Holmes posted Wednesday morning that it’s “time to wake n bake.”

According to the linguistic authorities at UrbanDictionary.com, the term “wake n bake” means to get out of bed in the morning and smoke pot.

As we recently pointed out at SportingNews.com, some in the league make too much of the fact that guys smoke marijuana.  The real question is whether their marijuana smoking affects performance or keeps them from playing.  But in light of the fact that players can be pushed into the NFL’s substance abuse program due to behavior — and given that Holmes was cited in 2008 for marijuana possession — he probably should have steered clear of the phrase.

So what will come of this?  Probably nothing.  But we know for a fact that receiver Randy Moss had to do some major tap-dancing to avoid being placed into Stage 1 of the substance abuse program when he admitted to Bryant Gumbel in 2005 that Moss smokes pot “every blue moon.”

Based on Holmes’ tweet, it could be inferred that he celebrates every yellow sun with a blaze.

    He was a Raider then, the league probably forces them to smoke pot to help tolerate being in a franchise who has JT the Brick associated with them.

    This guy is sooooooo f#ckin stupid.
    Please take his check and give it to the fan that he told “fans don’t cut mychecks… kill urself”. Teach this clown to respect those who make it possible to make millions playing football. No football fans, no millions of dollars for these thug @$$ ho’s.

  6. FAS says: Apr 1, 2010 9:56 AM

    Color me surprised.
    At least Tyree got cut after his catch because e wasn’t that good…Santonio at least has some talent.

  7. BillsFan27 says: Apr 1, 2010 9:56 AM

    Wow. He should go to jail and be banned from the NFL for life.

  14. MrHumble says: Apr 1, 2010 10:00 AM

    Here’s a perfect example of how players like Holmes, Rapeisberger and others show “no respect” to their teams and NFL (their employers) but yet W. Moon and others scream that the teams show no respect to players like McNabb etc. in how they treat them in regards to trade possibilities.

  15. Babylonian says: Apr 1, 2010 10:02 AM

    I cant believe he is that dumb before he gets baked. Why didnt he tweet everyone before he smashed that girls face? @SHOLMES dudes about to cut a girls face all up LOL.

  16. CanadianVikingFan says: Apr 1, 2010 10:02 AM

    Hell for all we know he could be in touch with his womanly side and wanted to bake a cake or some cookies after Big Ben got through with him because he couldn’t keep little Ben under control.

  17. nagurski_T_form says: Apr 1, 2010 10:03 AM

    grantd though-
    how stupid is this mf to type that ihst on twitter for his employrs to read, and the media to spread the “news”.
    millions of dollars.
    no fkkng sense.

  20. Caldon says: Apr 1, 2010 10:04 AM

    Someone needs to take twitter away from this guy for his own good

  21. cbrianwatkins says: Apr 1, 2010 10:07 AM

    i’d much rather have the league filled with pot smokers, than pill-popping drunks

  22. PFFFFT says: Apr 1, 2010 10:08 AM

    Everyone knows that Holmes is way into cookies, brownies, breads, cupcakes, etc. He’s a wiz in the kitchen, so much so that when he gets up in the morning he cannot help himself but put his slippers on his feet and over mitts on his hands.
    How else can you explain how Roethlisberger got so fat?

  23. ShockAndAwe09NYG! says: Apr 1, 2010 10:08 AM

    Wow, this guy is past dumb, HOLY CRAP I CANT BELIEVE IT! I know the entire league probably does it and they do make a big deal about it but its NOT socially exceptable and especially from a person has no choice but to be a role model. Wow, smooth move.

  24. Kirmie says: Apr 1, 2010 10:09 AM

    Time to wake n bake… some fresh cinnamon rolls.

  31. GirthyOne says: Apr 1, 2010 10:25 AM

    I bet this thread fills with a bunch of pots head claiming it should be legalized.

    It was a typo. He meant to type “Time to wake and break…another glass on a girl’s face.”

    I think its quite obvious that you all and Florio are a bunch of steelers haters. I am no steelers fan and I can see this. Did anyone ever think that ‘wake and bake’ could have something to do with the fact that he trains in the hot florida sun?
    You’re all a bunch of idiots. If hating on ben and santonio makes you feel good for now then sobeit. Just enjoy because come august, this will fuel their fire and they will be on the field to torch all of the defenses of your favorite teams!
    Go Dolphins!

  48. JollyRoger says: Apr 1, 2010 10:59 AM

    Do people even realize what Twitter and Facebook do? Some of these athletes and politicians and celebrities say the most retarded crap and are shocked when it comes back at them. Look at that jerkoff state senator in NH who said that on facebook that “anime is proof that two nukes weren’t enough.” Later, he said, “It was a poorly thought out comment, posted in jest on my private Facebook page.”
    Facebook isn’t private, idiot. Neither is Twitter. Get with the program.

    Seriously??? How naive can you possible be? That can’t mean anything other than getting high.
    I also think that pot should be legal, and not because I am a huge stoner. I have smoked in the past and still do on occassion, but I’m not going to get into that whole debate right now.
    The fact remains that it is an illegal substance in society and within the rules of the NFL. This dumbass should be suspended just on the basis that his is stupid enough to admit to taking an illegal drug on the internet for the entire world to see

    I’m not sure why the snipping on this subject, it’s fairly common but not everyone will know- I presume the first commenter thought that Florio, being that he’s fairly young, should know. .
    But who gives a crap really- the point of the thread is that Holmes is obviously an idiotic fool.

    Twitter is easily one of the stupidest inventions of the last 500 years. The Flowbee had more use than twitter. All twitter can do for people is get them in trouble by allowing idiots to post their dumb ass comments to the world instead of to the group of friends they normally would be hanging out with if they weren’t screaming for attention like spoiled little kids at the mall.
    How is it that these famous people do not know that any and every stupid thought that they post on twitter will be made public.
    Unfortunately there are pathetic people out there who spend there day reading about when Santonio Holmes is gonna get high or if Tila Tequila is gonna have her brother’s baby.
    I say again if you are gonna use twitter you might as well put on a tutu and some ballet shoes cause all you are is a little girl looking for someone to love you.

  65. The Real Shuxion says: Apr 1, 2010 11:50 AM

    Seriously if you cannot figure out what wake and bake means you either live under a rock, have never seen a movie since 1990 or are just plain retarded.
    What the hell else is it gonna mean? You people must be Steelers fans.

    I said the other day that the Steelers should take away his toy, but nooooo. Santonio is a great route-runner and has great hands for catching the ball. But he’s clearly not the brightest bulb in the box. The Steelers have to wait and see what’s happening in Georgia. But there’s no earthly reason they can’t intervene right now in Holmes’s career-suicide-by-Twitter. In fact, there’s no reason they can’t issue a tweeting gag order for the whole team. Sometimes you have to save the stupid from themselves.

    Deb let me clarify something so you don’t get me wrong. I’m former law enforcement and before I rush to judgement on anyone I’ll wait till all the facts are in. The very day Rothlisburger all of my #7 memorabilia will be immediately trashed. What he is accused of is dispicable and is no laughing matter.
    Only the creativity behind UCK’s comment was amusing. I did not mean to sound insensitive to the crime itself.

  85. Deb says: Apr 2, 2010 3:11 PM

    @girlsloveD …
    Whoa!! You didn’t sound insensitive. I wasn’t criticizing you for finding something humorous in all this. More power to you for grabbing a laugh where you can. I was criticizing the joke because I honestly don’t get what’s funny about it. But then, I was ROFL at Easy Bake Ovens, so maybe my humor meter is off.
    What he’s accused of is despicable. But remember that so far it’s nothing but two completely unsubstantiated accusations–one by a woman suing for $3 million and the other by a woman who hired a civil litigator within 48 hours. I’ve followed both cases closely–and not on gossip sites. Everything presented to the Nevada court so far supports Roethlisberger’s innocence. All we know in Georgia is that a girl accused him of something noted in the incident report as “sexual manipulation.” That hasn’t been defined, except the police said it was not rape and there was no semen on the accuser. Ben had two apparently sober cops–active, not retired–with him that night. One issued a statement saying he saw nothing to indicate any criminal act occurred. Everything else–people blocking doorways, consensual sex acts, head injuries, yada yada–has come from gossip and unnamed sources with no verification from authorities.
    I’m a rape survivor, not inclined to sympathize with abusers no matter what jersey they wear. But don’t throw yours away yet. Being a jerk to fans doesn’t make you a sex abuser. So far no one has defined the accusation (which for all we know could be pinching her butt) let alone provided evidence of assault. Don’t get caught up in the hype. Wait for the evidence. The DA may send this to Grand Jury, which doesn’t convene until, I think, June. We just have to be patient. If I see evidence, I’ll be angry at Ben. Until then, he’s an innocent man.

  86. JJMADDOG says: Apr 4, 2010 11:57 AM

    Whats funny is NFL players would rather admit to smoking pot than being gay, (which in Holmes case both could be true, lol). It should be like the military, don’t ask don’t tell.
    He should learn never to miss a good opportunity to shut the F*** up.
    I too believe that to allow alcohol to be legal while DUI’s fatalaties continue, while keeping pot illagel is just poor decision making by the government. The lost tax dollars alone could probably fund health care.

  87. Shalhoub66 says: Apr 11, 2010 11:13 AM

    why would he even write that on twitter. if he’s going to smoke pot don’t announce it to the world. he’s already been in trouble for this. and does anyone remember when he admitted to selling drugs in college, he’s just never gonna learn.

    Pot smoking will continue to be argued ad nauseum until it is legalized by the gummint. The wider issue is why smoking pot or possessing it for personal use is illegal in the first place. It’s not a even a drug, it is a plant. Maybe because banks make billions laundering proceeds of growing operations, and big pharma wants you to medicate with their products or the alcohol industry doesn’t want the competition. If anyone of age can drink a beer or a shot of whiskey, it is medieval to think you can be arrested, imprisoned, fired from your job, fined, lose your car if you smoke pot. Not to mention, to be castigated in a football blog if you even publicly joke about smoking pot. Who the hell is injured? Who’s delicate sensibilities are offended?

    It’s pretty hilarious the number of people that don’t know how to use Twitter, and I don’t just mean NFL players.
