Unlike Plaxico Burress, some NFL players get really shot, and not as a result of their own stupidity. Richard Collier barely survived a murder attempt in September that led the the amputation of a leg and paralysis below the waist, and the Orlando Sentinel landed the first interview with Collier, who says he “remembers everything” about the shooting.
“When I got in the ambulance, I remember they were counting bullets,” Collier said. “I was like man, that’s a lot.” Collier was shot 14 times.
Hell yes that’s a lot. That’s a lot for 50 Cent.
“I realized now how much strength I really have, how much patience I have. I’ve realized there’s so much more to me than playing football.”
Anyone who gets their life turned into shit by some asshole and still comes out of it with a positive attitude gets a tip of the cap from me. I mean, if some mom accidentally bumps her stroller into me it ruins my day. I’m really in no position to talk about losing a leg and being paralyzed.
