Stupid but not in the way you think

Clapp beat me to the punch on talking about the Melo story. After much internal debate I still wanted to post my thoughts. As Clapp said it's stupid, but let's check the tally sheet: 24, shitload of disposable income, access to anything and everything you would want. Bottom line, you would party like a crazy SoB too. And for the record this won't effect the Nuggets at all. The team almost focuses better when they face a little adversity. The league won't reprimand Melo, and if they do it won't be until next season. He was out celebrating a big win with his teammates. Nugs might still lose in the first round of the playoffs, but it will have nothing to do with this.

The thing that gets me about all of this stupidity with young wealthy stars (Melo, Lohan, Hilton, etc.) is that they have no reason to drive ever. I fucking hate driving. It's the worst part of my day every day. Driving limits my party life. Driving costs money I don't like to spend. Ok that last sentence doesn't support the general theme of this post, but whatever. Having a personal driver costs between $30,000 and $50,000 depending on what city you live in. Melo's house cost right around $18,000,000. Can he afford a driver?

Do I have to put the ball down when I drive?

The thing that really gets my goat about Melo is that he lives 45 fucking minutes from downtown. It's an obnoxious drive. Oh yeah, and he has a loft across the street from the Pepsi Center. Best case scenario you're exhausted after the game or getting back late from a roadie. Worst case scenario you hang out with the boys after the game. Why the fuck is he ever behind the wheel? I mean I'm a huge Nuggets fan and Melo apologist but shit man, use your dome.

Lohan had to wear that stupid alcohol bracelet for 45 days after trying to drive home 5 miles. The thing that shocks me about LA in general is that nobody cares. You really have to be acting like a fucking retard to get pulled over. I've spent my time making rounds at the Hollywood club scene (no it's not worth the $100 you need to give the bouncers to get in if you don't have a Black Card) and every one of those fuckers drives to the club. There is no such thing as a cab in that part of town and not as many limos or drivers as you would think. Yet people seem shocked when one of these celebs get caught drinking and driving. It's only a slight exaggeration to say that those folks need to be driving on the sidewalks to get pulled.

Did this really need to happen?

Didn't Brit just get a DWI? Ok maybe she shouldn't be compared to anybody, except aliens or the hugest douchebag you've ever met. A hot douchebag though. And yes, even when a little chubbier she's still hot.
