My Other Car Is A Hummer

Colorado Rockies pitcher Denny Neagle stands to loose $19 million dollars he is due in 2005 after the team moved to terminate his contract days after he was charged with soliciting a prostitute.

According to the Denver Post the Rockies released Neagle today.

The club will attempt to void Neagle's contract, claiming he violated the agreement because of two incidents in the past 14 months, a DUI and a citation last week for soliciting a prostitute. The specter of a protracted legal battle has prompted discussions of a settlement, though the Rockies insist that money was not a motivating factor in their decision.
The solicitation charge came after he was pulled over for speeding. When the officer asked why his seat belt was unfastened the female passenger explained that it was off because he paid her $40 for oral sex. He should have paid a little extra for professional discretion. It could go down as the most expensive hummer in history.

Ironically his other car really is a Hummer. He got his DUI in that one last year...

Ouch! Nothing is going right for pro-sports these days. Prostitutes, fights with fans, steroids, low attendance (in some leagues), hockey in a bind....the list goes on and on and on

Could someone explain to me why a baseball player would need to go to a prostitute? Wouldn't a late night at any sports bar get him the same thing?
For free, I might add.

Man, he had nearly every man's dream job, and he had to go and blow it like that... what a schmuck.

And rightwing: NOT that I'm trying to justify or rationalize his conduct, but since you asked for an explanation, lemme toss out a few reasons why he'd do such a stupid thing:

1) Guarantee of satisfaction
B) No worries about commitment or lawsuits
III) Thrill of the illicit -- "forbidden fruit" syndrome
d) as in Bill Clinton's case, "because he could."

He wouldn't be the first and won't be the last man to do his thinking with the wrong head... hell, nearly all of us (myself certainly not excepted) to do so.

Jay Tea:

Kevin, I think I might have to dispute this as "the most expensive hummer in history." Bill Clinton paid for a book and a beret for a hummer, and I bet the tab for THAT one ended up running even higher...

In both cases, though, I bet now both of them now wish they'd not settled for the hummer and gone for... er... "the fully Monty."

A highly-paid whore soliciting a low-paid whore. Who cares?

They'll both be on their backs making money again soon enough.

Don't these players have homes? GO THERE! It's safer.
