I can't watch the game because I'm stuck at work and they decided that their television was going to have the office package which included basically everything but sports channels. What the fuck? Seriously? An office package legitimately has god damn Cartoon Network and Nickelodeon but doesn't have ESPN in any way shape or form? Fuck that. If that's an office that's an office I never want to work in.
Anyways from following my twitter feed Boris Diaw has been pretty good tonight. So here he is drunk with teammate Manu Ginobili from this year. Expect more outrageous pictures tomorrow if they happen to beat Crawford and the Heat tonight.
Robert Kraft apparently has friends in high fucking places. First he meets Vladimir Putin who may or may not have stolen his Super Bowl Championship ring, and now he parties with Jay Z and Beyonce. Maybe throwing up the Roc Nation symbol is a sign he's going to sign with his agency sooner or later, joining just about every other athlete these days. Either that or he's ready to give Putin the Diamond Dallas Page treatment to get his ring back.

Bengals cornerback Adam "Don't Call Me Pacman" Jones was arrested after an incident that ocurred June 5th just before midnight in which he struck a female after she allegedly hit him with a bottle. After the incident, this tweet was sent out on his twitter account:
He didn't mention it anymore until June 10th, in which he claimed the attack was in self defense on his twitter account.
Luckily for me and the rest of the world, there was surveillance tape of the incident, in which it looks like the woman pours her drink on him then he seems to push her away. This was allegedly when she tried to get him to take a picture and he refused. It looks like he wasn't refusing all night as seen above with who I'm assuming is the guy that pushes him away just a bit too late.

Jerel Worthy was an All-American at Michigan State and skipped his senior season to enter the NFL Draft last season, projected to be a first or second round draft pick. The Packers traded up in the second round to draft Worthy with the #51 overall pick. Worthy played in 14 games and started 4 for the Packers, recording 2.5 sacks. Then, like what seems like every other Packers player Worthy went down with an injury that needed reconstructive surgery from Dr. James Andrews after the season which leads to this upcoming season in danger.
In other news, the drinking has really slowed down for a lot of athletes in the last couple of weeks. I continue to be on the lookout and will post accordingly. Apologies for the lack of posts.

Chris Long tweeted this picture at around midnight last night, drinking with former teammate Danny Amendola and Julian Edelman both currently of the Patriots. Nothing makes this website easier than athletes putting them out there for you. Thanks to @docvarmint for pointing this out to me.

Lost amongst the surgeries and parties of Rob Gronkowski sometimes is the other star tight end on the Patriots Aaron Hernandez. He may not rage as hard as Gronkowski, but as seen on Shot of Ginn he's known to get down. Here is Hernandez partying this offseason.

Broncos outside linebacker Von Miller attended Rehab in Vegas for a pool party, also attended by numerous NFL and NBA players including his teammate Omar Bolden who he is pictured with above. However - it doesn't appear like he had any intentions of getting into the pool rocking the onesie. It's clearly very important to keep covered up in the freezing summer weather of Nevada.

Here is Hall of Fame NHL player and coach Wayne Gretzky, the NHL's all time leader in goals, assists, points, and hat tricks, drunk in Greenville last week. I would probably pound a case of Natty or 3 if I saw my daughter put half of what his daughter Paulina Gretzky puts on Instagram.

Teammates apparently do everything together, even get other people drunk. Here is Patriots defensive end* Chandler Jones and tight end Rob Gronkowski tending drinks behind the bar at Strega last night. His arm might require another surgery, but apparently he can make a damn fine martini. The night was a benefit for OneFundBoston.

Jimmy Smith spent 1992-1994 on the Philadelphia Eagles and Dallas Cowboys before landing with the Jacksonville Jaguars in 1995 and having a great 10 year Jaguar career that ended in 2005.
In that time, Smith caught 862 balls for 12,287 yards and 69 touchdowns. A 2 time Super Bowl champion with the Dallas Cowboys, 5 time Pro Bowler, and 2 time Al-Pro he even won the Ed Block Courage Award once -- listed as voted by teammates as role models of inspiration, sportsmanship, and courage.
Retirement hasn't been to good to Smith however. @DanHicken reports that Smith is currently serving a 6 year prison sentence in Mississippi for possession of cocaine and possession of a firearm by a felon. He is due to be released in 2018.
Smith was arrested in 2001 for suspicion of drunken driving, and tested positive for cocaine. Smith denied at the time that he used the drug.
Then in 2003 he was suspended the first four games of the season for violating the leagues substance abuse policy. He stated that he spent several weeks in rehab and admitted to an addiction.
Smith was arrested in 2006 on multiple drug charges, but went through rehab and started the Jimmy Smith Foundation.
In April of 2009 Smith was pulled over in Jacksvonille for excessive window tint and after smelling marijuana the officer searched his vehicle and found crack cocaine, marijuana, and a business card with cocaine on it.

I have little context of whats going on here, but here is Brandon 'Bucks in 6' Jennings drinking a giant bottle of Perrier-Jouët champagne. Jennings becomes a free agent this offseason, and with how Nate Robinson is playing he might not be the best in free agency.
It's not often that the best wide receiver in the NFL gets arrested twice in 15 hours, but thankfully Titus Young graced us with this pleasure.
Former Detroit Lion Titus Young was pulled over at around midnight Sunday for an illegal left turn and was later arrested for suspicion of driving under the influence, and no further details regarding that arrest are known.
At around 2 in the afternoon the same day police were called to an impound lot after seeing a man climb over a fence. The man turned out to be Young who was looking for his black Mustang. He was then booked for Burglary at the same place he was booked 14 hours earlier.
Young is a former 2nd round pick who totaled 990 yards and 10 touchdowns in two seasons. He was benched and told to stay away from facilities after intentionally lining up in the wrong place against the Packers last season. He was waived and claimed by the St. Louis Rams this offseason who cut him just 10 days later.

The Vikings selected Tennessee WR Cordarrelle Patterson with one of their three first round draft picks, but the Tennessee Titans picked his teammate Justin Hunter who some think might end up being better at pick #34. Here he is out celebrating this past weekend with New York Giants undrafted free agent Marcus Davis.
