Jayson Shot His Dog! It's A Greek Thing
In light of yesterday's blog about how hot chicks like animals and the recent death of Adam Sandler's beloved bulldog Meatball, we have news from the Daily News that Jayson Williams, the embattled former Nets star, blew the head off his own Rottweiler!
"Williams executed his dog Zeus in a fit of fury after losing a $100 bet to former teammate Dwayne Schintzius."
"Then Williams reloaded the double-barreled shotgun, aimed the weapon at Schintzius, and demanded, 'Shinbone, get this f-----' dog off my porch or you're next,' according to a sworn statement."
The story continues, "The incident occurred Aug. 8, 2001, at Williams' estate in Alexandria Township after a night of drinking at the nearby Mountain View Chalet - the same place where he drank heavily before fatally shooting limo driver Costas (Gus) Christofi six months later, on Feb. 14, 2002."
Alexandria? Zeus? Costas Christofi?
The Corsair, without the aid of Dr. Watson, the Bloodhoung Gang from 3-2-1 Contact, or even the faithful sidekick, Shinbone, has solved The Case of the with only a love of classics and a degree from a fine liberal arts college.
A modern day Prometheus, Jayson takes his cues from Aeschylus' Prometheus Bound when he says:
"Am I to be reformed, and made a show
Of infamy to Zeus?"
It's all about the Greeks, baby: somewhere in his addled Jesus Juice filled head, Jayson was trying to enact the ancient Greek classic play. And, really, guys: you should see his Antigone after getting crunked up on Cutty Sark.
Williams, by the way, is facing up to 55 years in prison which, as any self respecting member of the Nation of Islam will tell you, is the same age that Pythagorras started a school on the island of Samos.
