Earlier this year, former Steelers (now Jets) receiver Santonio Holmes surely did nothing to help
his cause when it comes to the substance abuse policy by using the term “wake n bake”
on his Twitter page. We quickly learned that it has nothing to do with
cinnamon rolls, although the activity possibly could induce a craving
for a trip to the local Cinnabon.
But not everyone learns from
someone else’s error. Bills cornerback Drayton Florence has used the
same term on his Twitter page today: “Wake and bake great day to be great.”
the use of a term commonly associated with smoking marijuana doesn’t
mean that Florence does, has, or will be smoking it, he could have used a
better choice of words, given that not only a positive drug test but
also behavior can land a guy in the substance-abuse program.
So, guys, we suggest that you use something other than “wake and bake” as a top-o-the-mornin’ call to arms.
You know, something like, “Wakey, wakey. Hands off snakey,” or a variation thereof.
