Ever have an argument with the missus and accidently slip and shatter a glass vase?
Happens all the time, right?
Brandon Marshall is particularly susceptible to slipping, despite being freakishly athletic. He just can't stop falling into glass. First it was a slippery McDonald's bag. Late last night, after a
profound discussion about John Rawls' Theory of Justice heated argument with his wife, he got all klutzy again. Unfortunately for the receiver known as The Beast, authorities had other ideas. From the Palm Beach Post:
Marshall was hospitalized last night and sent to the intensive care unit after being stabbed. According to a Broward County Sheriff’s arrest report, Nogami-Marshall said she stabbed Marshall in the abdomen with a kitchen knife out of self defense....Marshall initially tried to shield his wife from responsibility. When officers arrived at his Southwest Ranches home around 7:40 p.m., Marshall said in a sworn statement that the injury occurred when he slipped and fell on a broken glass vase. But officers did not find any blood in the immediate area to substantiate his claim.
Adam Schefter reported that Marshall's wife happened to miss his vital organs, so the wideout is expected to make a full recovery.
We can all be thankful for that, and, of course, for Marshall's attempt to "shield" his wife.
Brandon Marshall may be the luckiest guy walking the planet. He puts his hand through a television and barely avoids tearing off his entire arm. Yet he comes back and grabs over 100 catches for the Broncos. Gang members riddle a vehicle with bullets, thinking Marshall is inside. But he's miles away. Finally, he gets a knife through the abdomen, but it misses all of his vital organs.
Brandon Marshall is playing with house money.
Is this why he decides to go all in so often?
On a serious note, what else is there to say about this guy? Most guys grow up after they graduate from college. Some mature after getting married. Perhaps it takes some men the birth of their first child.
Marshall, it seems, may not get the opportunity if he continues down the road he is currently on.
I'll leave the speculation as to what this means for his playing career post lockout. One has to believe it ain't going to be pretty. Josh McDaniels may have made some questionable decisions as Napoleon of the Broncos. Trading Marshall wasn't one of them.
