This story's been floating around for a couple days, but it just wouldn't be right if I ignored the news that new Broncos running back Travis Henry has nine children from nine different women in several states throughout the South, and has been ordered to establish a $250,000 fund to cover a new $3000/month child support payment thanks to a history of frivolous spending.

[Judge Clarence] Seeliger wrote that the football player displayed "bad judgment in his spending habits," dropping $100,000 for a car and $146,000 for jewelry. Meanwhile, Henry fell behind on support payments for his child with Beacham that were mandated by a previous order. Threatened with jail, he borrowed $9,800 from his former team, the Tennessee Titans, to pay the bill. according to court records.

Remember, people: judge not, lest ye be judged.  I always say, Let he who hasn't borrowed money from his employer to pay child support after buying a $100,000 car cast the first stone.  Oh, wait, that's me.  Line to cast stones starts here, people.
