Blinky strikes again!

pacman.jpgPacman just can’t get a break. All he wants to do is eat some pills, maybe munch on one or two of those ghosts that are always chasing him, get some Ms. Pacman tail. But no, the courts just have to get in his way and say he can’t do what he loves. Although in this case, we’re not talking about the yellow dude, but Tenneesee Titans cornerback, Adam “Pacman” Jones.

Pacman Jones has been suspended from playing for the Titans for a year because of various legal troubles he’s mired in. To pass the time, Pacman decided to do some wrestling with Total Nonstop Action Wrestling. He was set to make his debut yesterday, but the Titans ran to court last Friday and got a temporary injunction prohibiting him from such shenanigans. Although he’s suspended, he’s still under contract with the Titans, meaning he still has to abide by the contractual language banning him from activities which “involve a significant risk of personal injury.” Prior to this injunction, Pacman was already bitching about the Titans trying to stop his good times:

I don’t know what you all want me to do. Just sit in the house and be miserable all day? I can’t do that. I have to keep my spirits up high. I have a whole family to take care of.

Maybe next time, Mr. Jones, you won’t do things that get you suspended for a year, yeah?

Of course, Pacman managed to work out a last minute deal so that he could still be on the program last night. He just wasn’t allowed to “touch or be touched, grapple, shove, throw or have anything thrown at him by anyone working for or watching the show.” You should go read ESPN’s write-up of his appearance — sounds like a real class act. I’m sorry I didn’t shell out the $29.95 for pay per view.

…Actually, it might’ve been better than last night’s confusing season (and likely series) finale to “John from Cincinnati.”

This guy is an idiot. If he would just keep his nose clean, the league would have lowered his suspension by 6 games. If he had gotten in his six games, he would have been able to count the year towards his free agency and pension. To hear him complain that the Titans are effecting his family...Look in a mirror fool.
