Keep your eyes peeled for an unusual story today

We caught wind on Monday of an interesting story involving an incoming rookie who, possibly after having a bit too much alcohol on Friday night, decided that it was time to have a snack at a food-service establishment that, unfortunately, wasn’t open for business at the time.

Though we’ve been unable to nail down the details to the level that would make our in-house legal counsel (i.e., me) sufficiently comfortable with the prospect of naming names, we believe it to be accurate based on the information we’ve received, and we’ve passed the tip along to folks in position to chase down the details.
We weren’t even going to mention the situation for now, but we just got word through a league source corroborating the tip.  But we’ll defer to the folks who are geographically in a better position that us to put the meat on the bone.
Or, as the case may be, the sprinkles on the donut.

    Here come the lame Tebow/gay jokes.

  4. chargerrich says: Jun 8, 2010 9:41 AM

    Amazing Story…
    I have one too about a not named player who is doing some illegal activities and another not named player who is household name.
    This of course is corraborated by an unamed source who added that there is also a league conspiracy afoot!

    it’s got to be dez bryant.

  10. WarrenMoonGOAT says: Jun 8, 2010 9:44 AM

    lemme guess Terrence Cody got drunk and busted into a Krispy Kreme

  11. civilwarfish says: Jun 8, 2010 9:44 AM

    I dont want to peel my eyes. Very uncomfortable.

  12. dafish says: Jun 8, 2010 9:44 AM

    I guess we can rule out Tebow? Didn’t Gonzalez go to New England, which is Dunkin Donuts land?
    Yeah, my money is on him.

    So this is a story about an unknown Turd

  15. DonTerrelli says: Jun 8, 2010 9:46 AM

    Sounds like some Jeff Reed antics…

  16. SaintsBucsPanthersSUKK says: Jun 8, 2010 9:47 AM

    are you going to announce that you are only 90% effective as a sportswriter florio?

  19. texansin2010 says: Jun 8, 2010 9:50 AM

    Dez Bryant….

  20. lololnpnp says: Jun 8, 2010 9:50 AM

    Ha, a post about a future post. You really are doing this just to f’ with your readers. Oh and was that last sentence supposed to be funny? It doesn’t look funny but the sentence is just stupid so I assume that was an attempt at humor. In the future maybe you could include a #humor tag to let us know when you’re flexing those comedic muscles.
    If I had to guess as to who the culprit is though, I’d say it’s the Vikings’ own Toby Gerheart. You know how those white running backs are…

  21. steveinohio says: Jun 8, 2010 9:50 AM

    From that headline I thought Ben had struck again. Then I realised you said “unusual”

  22. cbrianwatkins says: Jun 8, 2010 9:51 AM

    did you read this story before you posted?
    if so you may noticed there isnt even an effin story
    really reaching here Florio

  23. lilwhiteguy1 says: Jun 8, 2010 9:51 AM

    $5 says its an SEC player

  24. jj jones says: Jun 8, 2010 9:52 AM

    {gets on knees and prays}
    …please be Tim Tebow…

  25. habibfromnewdehli says: Jun 8, 2010 9:52 AM

    Well we know it’s not Dunkin’ Donuts… as they’re open 24 hours.

  26. shingo says: Jun 8, 2010 9:52 AM

    I like how Florio finds new and innovative ways to fail at journalism.

  27. Jeff says: Jun 8, 2010 9:53 AM

    When you said “unusual story,” I thought it was going to be a Vikings fan admitting nobody cheated or conspired to make them lose the NFC Championship Game.

    The way the Packers’ luck has been going, it must be Bulaga.

  31. headrush4you says: Jun 8, 2010 9:56 AM

    I hope it was Krispy Kreme and not Dunkin Donuts.

  32. Asswipe Johnson (Pronounced Az-Wee-Pay) says: Jun 8, 2010 9:56 AM

    The first thing that came to my mind when I saw this headline was Florio must have took a dump in someones closet…

  33. mama tried says: Jun 8, 2010 9:56 AM

    taco bell, gotta have taco bell!!

  34. 23 says: Jun 8, 2010 9:56 AM

    This “story” has more about nothing than a Seinfeld episode.
    We know Florio …. you were in the pool ….

  35. Chiefs2010 says: Jun 8, 2010 9:58 AM

    just post it. Deal with litigation later..

  36. INISHUL says: Jun 8, 2010 9:58 AM

    nice fortune cookie/horoscope headline.

  37. lifelongphinfan says: Jun 8, 2010 9:59 AM

    let me get this strait,you have a story with no details and or facts and your not posting it? that don’t sound like the florio i know. the florio i know would ramble on & on with or with out details,facts or names. i believe we have an imposter writing articals here.someone needs to make sure this is the real florio.

  38. Really? says: Jun 8, 2010 9:59 AM

    Breaking news! Something might happen today!

  39. tdtommyd says: Jun 8, 2010 9:59 AM

    Next at 11 – Mount Cody unleashes an avalanche into a Krispy Kreme store.

  40. Norv Turner says: Jun 8, 2010 10:00 AM

    Too much alcohol huh? My guess is whoever that rookie is went to the University of Wisconsin.

  41. hnirobert says: Jun 8, 2010 10:00 AM

    Mount Cody. Put money on it.

  42. Verbal Kint says: Jun 8, 2010 10:00 AM

    You should know that all you have to say is “too the best of our knowledge” and anything you say is protected. Although you still could get sued, but you guys didn’t get where you are today by “fact-checking.”

  44. IALTO says: Jun 8, 2010 10:03 AM

    My guess is it’s the Bear’s 1st round pick….errr, wait….nevermind. I always loved that one!

  45. megatron81 says: Jun 8, 2010 10:04 AM

    Are you sure it wasn’t Rex Ryan?

  46. mustbechris says: Jun 8, 2010 10:04 AM

    this is stupid. please don’t bother.

  47. Stillerz says: Jun 8, 2010 10:06 AM

    Is there even any question that its Terrence Cody?

  48. SoFlaTrojan says: Jun 8, 2010 10:06 AM

    This is an isolated incident and totally out of character for Tim Tebow.

  49. Sow Crates says: Jun 8, 2010 10:07 AM

    How much information do you have? I mean, you were sufficiently comfortable with declaring Terry Bradshaw dead based on the information you had.

  50. FBGeek77 says: Jun 8, 2010 10:07 AM

    Wow. This has to win the “Most useless, self-promoting drivel ever” award.
    “We don’t have a story yet, but we will. Honest and for true!”

  51. JaggedMark says: Jun 8, 2010 10:08 AM

    Fast food craving? I’ll guess Mount Cody.
    Sure hope it isn’t a Lion or Brandon Graham of Philly.

  52. Nevisyakker says: Jun 8, 2010 10:11 AM

    Sounds like something you’d expect from a drunk college kid, which is what this guy probably continues to see himself as in terms of behavior. However, that sounds stupid even for most beer-blasted frat guys.

  53. GoCaps8 says: Jun 8, 2010 10:11 AM

    Was it a 1st round pick?

  54. swashbuccaler says: Jun 8, 2010 10:11 AM

    It was Tebow.

  55. swashbuccaler says: Jun 8, 2010 10:18 AM

    I miss the good ole’ days when PFT wasn’t scared to mention ANY rumor.

  56. dolfanSS says: Jun 8, 2010 10:24 AM

    You know what I really love about this site? So many folks love to criticize the writers for posting stories yet the same folks are always here hanging on every word. I wonder what some people would do with their time if there were no stories on Profootballtalk.com to criticize?

  57. CleanSlaton says: Jun 8, 2010 10:30 AM

    My money’s on a Sooner. A sign reading ‘Closed’ wouldn’t halt a Sooner; possessing the ability to read isn’t a requirement for admission to Oklahoma University. Also, Norman, OK is full of fat, ugly people…..so if it waddles like a Sooner and burps like a Sooner…..

  58. allday28 says: Jun 8, 2010 10:32 AM

    Well the Bears are safe

  59. Belichick Is God says: Jun 8, 2010 10:36 AM

    He wan’t drunk, he was filled with the power… Tebow felt the need to go to church, but the nearest church was closed, so he put his hands on the lock and willed it open. But the cops are not buying it.

  60. NJBoysFan says: Jun 8, 2010 10:41 AM

    Dez Bryant during post draft interviews said he doesn’t drink.

  61. Buffalo Hogan says: Jun 8, 2010 10:43 AM

    Was Mike Holmgren drafted this year?

  62. Chapnasty2 says: Jun 8, 2010 10:47 AM

    Ben had obviously finished ravishing a young unwilling co-ed at a local bar and needed his usual Krispy Kreme late night/after sex snack.

  63. Chapnasty2 says: Jun 8, 2010 10:50 AM

    And they obviously mistook Big Ben for Rookie Terrance Cody, it is a common mistake.

    Worth quoting.

  65. DemocratsAreStupid says: Jun 8, 2010 10:55 AM

    Definitely Jeff Reed

  66. Chapnasty2 says: Jun 8, 2010 11:04 AM

    @ dolfanss and CommanderSheperd
    It is irritating but I wil explain this to you like I have numerous times to people who have made this exact quote and point. This website has gone from great and extensive content to rumor and speculation without real facts supporting the claims. Those of us who have been here for a while understand this and are doing our damndest to get it back to the way it used to be before NBC corrupted it, much like it did the real news.
    Second, most of us enjoy this site for the ability to interact with other readers via comments. It gets loud, hostile and offensive, but it is generally fun and in good spirit with few exceptions.
    These two reasons are why people come here and why we complain. I hope this clears up any confusion for you two gents and any others who may be thinking the same thing.

  67. DEMOLITION says: Jun 8, 2010 11:09 AM

  69. God's Own Silver and Blue says: Jun 8, 2010 11:15 AM

    Deb and Frank Burns became so depressed because not everybody wants to be raped by Ben Roethlisberger that they knocked over a Tim Hortons. And there, right next to the deep fryer, they had make-up sex.

    @ megatron81
    Rex doesn’t need to break into DD, the last person to leave the building at night makes sure to fill the dumpsters with day-old donuts so he can just rummage through it whenever he gets the urge…

  78. russraven says: Jun 8, 2010 12:14 PM

    Got to be the new Steelers center the one that was french- kissing his brother after he got drafted, just wanted to impress the rapist QB.

  82. realitypolice says: Jun 8, 2010 1:09 PM

    If it involves a donut shop, Jamarcus Russell must be somehow involved. Maybe Florio got the rumor wrong. Maybe it wasn’t an incoming rookie who did the break in but someone who just plays like a rookie.
    By the way, how awesome are PFT posters. 81 comments and counting on a story that says nothing about anyone.

  83. robert ethen says: Jun 8, 2010 1:11 PM

    Florio, tell us when we can blink. This is starting to hurt.

    ========================
    Until I read the part about the donuts, I thought maybe Deb had broken into the bar in Milledgeville so she could sniff the sink Ben got busy on.

    Or a Steeler :)

  87. Maddog says: Jun 8, 2010 2:05 PM

    Come on, where’s the update? It’s all over the internet now that it was Golden Tate

  88. brooks07 says: Jun 8, 2010 2:13 PM

    Yup.. Good old Golden Tate. I was hoping the Bucs were going to draft him but I’m glad we took Benn instead. What a knucklehead…

  89. bonecity7 says: Jun 8, 2010 2:21 PM

    Hmm, Donuts!!!
    Let’s see, cops love donuts, some cops work off-duty details as guards…..some football players are guards……..invoking the Reflexive property, we can narrow down the list to Guards drafted in this year’s draft.
