Well, at least Liberty Mutual can get you your car back. Your receiver? Not so much.
he looks like a character from Avatar. only blacker. and deader.
I almost left a comment in the last post that said “Peter King will no longer be exchanging emails with the authors of this tasteless publication” but class hardly seems like a high standard over there either.
RIP Slim. We need you, man. When you see Vicki up there, tell her we miss her.
Stay Classy SI.
It’s DoubleClick’s fault, not SI’s. DoubleClick sells ad space in packages to agencies–ah hell, let’s blame SI anyway.
I just went back to SI. They’ve improved the ad, but not that much…
Question for the mailbag: if I’ve got Chris Henry on my fantasy roster, should I start him this week in hopes that zombie Chris Henry torches San Diego? Or should I go with Moss and hope he doesn’t phone it in against Buffalo?
@someone: Even he can’t give a more lifeless effort than Randy Moss did last week.
Another life cut short thanks to Tiger Woods.
Sailing away to The Undying Lands with the rest of the elves.
Chris Henry was thrown from a truck in Charlotte.
Too bad Jake Delhomme didn’t throw him, he’d have landed safely in someone’s arms and taken back home.
“Chris Henry is not going to make ghost catches this week!”
“But he could”
“No he can’t”
“Yes he could”
If belichick was with the Bengals:
Cincinnati Bengals — Questionable: WR Chris Henry (misc.).
Belichick, “Look, I’m not a coroner, OK?”
Honestly, I can’t believe its taken a Cincinnati Bengal this long to die.
/1 year too late on the joke
So Benson still gets the start and 20 carries this week, correct?
/only cares about Bengals players on my fantasy roster
Silly SI! He clearly didn’t go through any windows while falling out of that truck! Nice try, though!
While it is sad, anyone see ESPN this morning? Henry was becoming Palmer’s deep threat go to guy? 236 yards and 2 TD’s through 9 games doesn’t sound like much of anything.
In a few days I’m sure he will be a hall of fame candidate if he hadn’t died.
Is it classless to drop a player on my Fantasy team that I haven’t used all season, Devin Hester, in order to pickup Henry and see how many other people in my league get pissed?
Apparently Palmer was right and this post is far worse than Punter’s IM(NS)HO
It’s pretty much impossible to make a funny joke about a 26 year old father’s death. Doesn’t seem to be stopping anyone. It probably should.
@ FredEx: allow us to introduce you to the internet. It’s a big scary place. But if you stick around long enough, you get to see sexy Friday.
@ it’s not doubleclick’s fault. A roadblock like this would have been bought directly through SI’s sales team. It shouldn’t have been up for more than a minute given the context though.
@ FredEx — and you get to see Sexy Friday as long as you do not ask stupid questions or make unreasonable demands.
I think it was Gallagher who said “There is no way you can ride in the back of a pick-up truck and look cool”.
at least he didn’t fall out of a carboat.
Let’s Build on That!
In a testament to how much the Bengals miss him, reports indicate that C Henry had more yards through the air than C Palmer did last week.
hearing this news must have felt like being hit by a truck…
just another bump in the road for them to over come…
at least they’re not finishing dead last this year…
the bengals need to keep on truckin’…
the bengals can’t just lay there like roadkill waiting to die…
the bengals need to hit the ground running…
@coolio7: +5 for each joke.
+10 if you post them on a Cincinnati Bengals Blog.
even though he was on IR, he’s now listed as questionable on my fleaflicker injury report.
ESPN, 30 seconds ago, their retarded 1st and 10 show:
Skip Bayless: Here was a troubled young man, down to his last strike, and he was turning it around. He could be Randy Moss Jr., 6-4, and he could fly.
Actually Skip, I think he clearly disproved that theory last night.
I’ve been racking my brain to come up with a tasteless joke, but I’ve got nothing.
So, serious question: Did his fianceé just keep on driving after he fell off the pickup? The reports all say “he was found in a residential area”.
I just picked up Chris Henry for my fantasy team. I had to drop Plax in the process, but sacrifices need to be made in this trying time. Dead trumps jailed in the battle for the 14th roster spot on my team.
LBoH – He could fly all right…it was the landing where Randy had him beat.
Well Redskins fans acan at least be happy knowing Snyder won’t overspend on him at some point.
It would have been great if it was a Geiko ad. Guess what the good news is?
Trying to compare the on field accomplishments of Henry to Taylor is bullshit.
/trying not to laugh
+10 for everyone
BMW – Guess he took flying lessons from Cory Lidle.
I laughed at almost every joke, so I will join all of you in hell
Well at least he will be familiar with his surroundings, he was buried on the depth chart after all.
Hines Wald sends condorences.
Waiting for the autopsy to show he was high on crack, pot, Hennessey and baby laxatives. Trouble found this guy wherever he went. It’s not the sane or sober individual who jumps into the bed of a moving truck and beats on windows.
I guess the 9-4 record has fans here in Cincinnati feeling benevolent – they’re treating this like the Pope died. It was a second rate wide receiver with alligator arms who slid nearly every time he was going to be hit. The one time he didn’t he broke his arm and look what happened.
Also, anyone easily offended should stick to Yahoo. Fuck off FredEx.
//doesn’t want to laugh at Tomlinson’s Pain Tolerance
//cant’ help it
Well, at least Henry died doing something that he loved.
