Plaxico Burress fires shots at more than himself in an explosive interview to be published next week.The Jets wide receiver blasts Giants coach Tom Coughlin and quarterback Eli Manning as well as the teams management, fans who celebrated his incarceration and New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg in the October issue of Mens Journal, which hits newsstands on Sept. 16.
Burress also lambastes a Dunkin' Donuts employee who over-toasted a bagel for him three years ago, a meter maid, an elderly man who "walked too slow in front of me one time," several women who refused to sleep with him, a FedEx delivery driver, a telemarketer who called him "during sacred meditation hour," a local weatherman who "never got it right," a houseplant.
When asked for the exact number of names included on his hit list, Burress said, "I hate everybody" and stormed off to his room.
Reportedly, the Jets receiver is trying to contact the StayPuft Marshmallow man (a fictional character), known menace to New York City (in movies) about "teaming up" for some kind of revenge scheme:
Bloomberg responded Friday morning.
"The Giants are actually headquartered in New Jersey," he said. "I understand the symbolism of taking on New York City. Actually, I don't understand. I don't get it at all."
