Is Plaxico really a changed man? Not sure
SO Plaxico Burress exits prison wearing a red Phillies’ cap, a hoodie over the cap, sunglasses and shorts (Was it hot out or cold?) claiming to be a changed man.
Hmmm. Put me down as “undecided.
Phil Mushnick, NY Post, June 19, 2011
On the same day Burress became a free man, nearly 45,000 persons were on hand for a Dodgers/Phillies game at Citizens Bank Park in Philadelphia. Since it was 85 degrees outside, I’m going to hazard a guess that more than a tiny percentage of those in attendance wore some combination of Phillies caps, sunglasses and shorts. Could it be that this was the largest public assembly of would-be violent criminals east of The Gathering? Or is it more likely that Mushnick finds normal spring-summer men’s clothing appreciably more sinister when persons of a darker complexion are wearing it?
