Say It Ain't So Skippy

The beloved wild-man kicker for our Pittsburgh Steelers, Jeff "Skippy" Reed, was evidently arrested at 2:50 AM at a Sheetz. What do you suppose the chances are that alcohol was somehow involved in all of this? Probably somewhere between 99.9% and 99.99% would be my guess.

Apparently Skippy damaged an empty towel dispenser and "used profane language towards a Sheetz employee stating that there were no towels in the restroom."

I mean I hate an empty towel dispenser as much as the next guy, but that's why most places put those inferior hot air dryers in there. But if I was Jeff Reed I suppose I'd be opposed to subjecting myself to such depths as well.

I guess we shouldn't be at all surprised by this development, right? I mean if I told that a Steeler was arrested at 3 AM at a Sheetz for that sort of a crime, Reed would have had to been your first guess, right? I mean, Santonio is the obvious first guess if its a real crime given his issues, but Tone wouldn't be caught dead committing such a lame offense. It takes a special type of person to be arrested for vandalizing a Sheetz, and given Jeff's infamous penchant for partying and just being genuinely outrageous this just seems to fit too perfectly.

What I really want to know is exactly what he did to damage this thing. Aren't those things usually pretty solid? He had to have kicked it, right? I can't imagine him getting enough power into his arms to be able to break one of those things, so it had to be his massive legs that did the damage, right?

Whatever the case, one thing's for sure: We have the most interesting and entertaining kicker in football, maybe even in NFL history.

It doesn't give our Steelers a very good reputation when they go do things like this. I get mad too when there are no paper towels...but there's no reason to be mean about it!

The Steelers are loved and idolized by so many people in Pittsburgh - They need to set a good example!
