The return of "wake and bake"

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.”

Though
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.

    Are you going to give credit to the founding source?

  5. bonafide says: Sep 2, 2010 12:54 PM

    I don’t know that he meant “wake n bake” in that context. Santonio Holmes certainly did though.

    ROFL … “Wakey, wakey. Hands off snakey.”
    Kudos, Florio. Your line was world’s funnier than the prison guard’s. Maybe you should be writing for sitcoms.

    No, I think that has something to do with PCP.

    “Wake and bake” gonna cost you some cake.

  10. Richierich420 says: Sep 2, 2010 1:03 PM

    I think he is just trying to say that he will be playing tonight because every time he gets on the field he gets burnt

  11. Bdrunk says: Sep 2, 2010 1:05 PM

    Don’t knock it till ya try it.

  12. Qoojo says: Sep 2, 2010 1:14 PM

    Oh no, he might be using pot.

  13. Insomniac says: Sep 2, 2010 1:19 PM

    These guys really aren’t all that smart. The NFL already helps them all out by giving them only 1 test a year for illicit drugs (if they aren’t in the substance abuse program).
    Just shut up, lay off the stuff before training camp, take your test and light up for ~10 months.

    Brains, “give that man a gold star.”

    the fact that you’re following “twitter” at all makes you look like a high-school girl.
    the fact you attempt then to pass off what you find there as “news” is inexcusable.

  16. tbx59 says: Sep 2, 2010 1:35 PM

    I prefer to use it in the simple past: I woke and boke

  17. WNYhell5 says: Sep 2, 2010 1:49 PM

    What a pot smoking jerk.

    People have told me good things about this “wake and bake.”

  19. WNYhell5 says: Sep 2, 2010 1:56 PM

    Wow. You can make a story about a stupid twitter post…. or you can talk about this charity work he’s been doing this week…
    http://blogs.buffalobills.com/2010/09/01/florence-helping-school-kids/
    Ya know… whichever makes better news I guess.

    “hands off snakey”- another freudian slip by Florio regarding Roethlisberger?

  21. Actlikea2yrold says: Sep 2, 2010 2:00 PM

    what is he supposed to be doing??? he’s in buffalo

  22. RavensChick says: Sep 2, 2010 2:01 PM

    Given how he played in the last preseason game, he should have tweeted “Wake and toast”.

  23. Big G says: Sep 2, 2010 2:07 PM

    How about getting a real job, since you really don’t know how to report about sports on a sports blog!!

  24. muchmaligned says: Sep 2, 2010 3:01 PM

    Are we seriously policing the use of colloquialisms on social media now?

    I prefer to say “Wakey wakey, bitch suck my snakey”.

    I don’t think it’s polite to speak to your mother like that.

  26. Deb says: Sep 2, 2010 3:30 PM

    @bonafide …
    Oh come on LOL
    @YawnFlorio …
    Right. And all you hear back is your own echo … or “Nothing else until you pay the tab.”

  27. patpatriotagain says: Sep 2, 2010 3:34 PM

    maybe he meant
    “time to make the donuts”

  28. jebdamone says: Sep 2, 2010 3:35 PM

    what else could ‘wake and bake’ possibly mean?
    heyheyheyhey………………………………………………………………………………………..smoke weed everyday!

    My personal mantra back in the day was “rise and shine and hoot a line”

  30. Terrell Blowens says: Sep 2, 2010 9:33 PM

    Well around Memorial Day, Gerald McCoy said he was gonna get faded, nobody noticed that. Fact is most NFL players smoke pot at least occasionally

  31. DeeDubb says: Sep 2, 2010 11:15 PM

    This whole “wake and bake” story was played out when you first reported it and just as unfunny. When are you gonna stop the dreadful stand up routine?? Nobody comes here to read your corny ass whiff on jokes. Lastly, stop using “wake and bake,” you never knew what the term was until you looked it up on urban dictionary. Again Florio, stick to reporting the facts and please, please, please keep the “personality” to yourself.
