When Rashard Medenhall isnt fumbling footballs or dishing out err. love advice to the ladies of the world, hes on twitter just like you and me. But unlike you and me hes preaching some crackpot conspiracy theories.
And then wait for it
Not to turn WickedGoodSports into a political forum, but theres so much wrong in that one tweet.
Apparently Rashard doesnt read or watch the news well at all. Otherwise he wouldve known that bin Laden and Al Qaeda proudly took full responsibility the attack on the World Trade Center. He wouldve also heard and seen the man speak. Also, not sure what part of a plane exploding into a building defies the logic and the laws of physics that hes created in his brain.
To celebrate or not to celebrate has been the center of debate over the past two days, but everything else? Cmon, Rashard. Youre not really that nave are you?
I'm not convinced he was even behind the attacks we have really seen no evidence to prove it other than the gov telling us Rashard, deleted tweet (The Pitt Stop)
To be fair to Rashard, he deleted that second and third tweet. Maybe someone finally showed him the horrific video that everyone else has seen and explained to him what was so wrong about everything he tweeted. Or maybe the Steelers chided him like a kid. Either way, we hope someone gave him a good kick in the pants, while they were at it.
But since Rashard is so into conspiracy theories, we decided to come up with a few others he might enjoy.
The moon really is made of cheese
Dont listen to what NASA or those pesky scientists say. Rashard thinks, therefore he knows the truth.
Hitler wasnt a monster; he was just understood
Like bin Laden, Hitler just needed a hug, but the world decided to hate him for his crappy little moustache. But unlike with bin Laden, Mendenhall has seen at least one Hitler video and cant see how everyone hated him so much.
The government is controlling your brain
Best to get that tinfoil hat ready to fend off the waves penetrating your brain
The NBA is rigged
Ummm moving on.
The New England Patriots spied
OK, those last two arent the best examples.
Anyways, its fun seeing what goes on in athletes minds. We just wish they actually thought things through more before posting it on the web for all to see.
As ol Abe Lincoln said: It is better to remain silent and be thought a fool than to open one's mouth and remove all doubt.
