We all know today is April 20, 2011. Just like any normal day of work, school, being unemployed, your typical Wednesday right?
WRONG, today is 4/20 fools, every stoners favorite day of the year. A day where all the kids you knew from HIGH school, or college can celebrate the fact that today it’s actually COOL to be flopping out on your couch, playing call of duty in your parents basement, unemployed, and of course LIGHTING UP. So call your favorite old toke buddy from HIGH school, or if you are in HIGH school your best toke buddy, and light one up for the FloppingOut Top Ten Tokers where we will be honoring the biggest stoners in all of sports.
We understand that probably 98.4% of athletes smoke the ganja, so instead of going through all the athletes who were caught with herb, we’ll bring you some of the funniest stories and BIGGEST real stoners.
LESS GET IT!
10. NFL Wide Receiver Santonio Holmes:
Santonio loves his weed, the former Super Bowl MVP has had multiple run ins with the law regarding drug chargers. On October 23, 2008 Holmes was arrested in Pittsburgh and cited by officers for possession of marijuana. He released an apology after missing a game stating that he wished to “focus all of [his] efforts on helping our team win on the field and achieve its ultimate goal.”
Holmes would serve another suspension this past season after being traded to the New York Jets, due to a previous marijuana arrest in 2010. Smoke it up Holmes, as long as your smoking them corners up the field come September, assuming well…whatever it’s 4/20…
9. NFL Quarterback Michael Vick:
We all know Mike Vick loves his buds. I mean Vick loves his weed so much that he was caught at a Miami airport with what many believed was “bong water” in a water bottle. Damn Vick I didn’t know you liked the ganj that much that you even like to drink that shit.
Then after posting bail after being arrested for Federal Dog Fighting charges, Vick failed a random government drug test for Mary J in 2007 and was put on house arrest (from 10 am to 6pm) with electronic monitoring.
There is no doubt that Vick likes to “Relax and take notes, while he tokes of the marijuana smoke” (Biggie Voice).
8. NBA Players Rasheed Wallace AND Damon Stoudemire:
Because these two love/d to blaze together we had to put them as a duo, I mean for all the duo blazers out there would you be the same blazer without your blazer partner? Well Sheed and Damon wouldn’t be the same Blazers unless they blazed together.
While with the Portland Trail BLAZERS, BLAZERS Damon Stoudamire and Rasheed Wallace were both cited in 2002 for marijuana possession after their vehicle was stopped on the way home from a game in Seattle, throwback huh?
As usual during any arrest, both guys claimed they weren’t smoking, and that the weed that was found in the car, didn’t belong to them.
Best part about all this, is that earlier that year (’02), Stoudamire was charged with a felony after police found a large bag of marijuana in his home while investigating a burglar alarm set off inside his home. THEN in 2007, Stoudamire was arrested at the Tucson airport because some weed fell out of his pocket as he was going through security, what a straight up schmidiot…but it is 4/20 so Damon and Sheed be feeling real nice…
7. NBA Great Bill Walton
This one is a FloppingOut favorite because it is old man, hippy Bill Walton. Walton who was one of the best college basketball players ever at UCLA, an NBA Hall of Famer, NBA MVP, a two-time NBA Champion (one time Finals MVP) and a top broadcaster, apparently has a green thumb? Nice…
Now times were different back in the day when people took drugs like we take pisses, but after discovering Walton’s past marijuana use and by hearing his stoner voice on tv…”maaaan”…”looook here” (stoner voice), we had to put him on our list.
Walton went to UCLA in the 70′s where he protested Vietnam (stoner), had a reputation for being rebellious (stoner), would have kept his hair long if Wooden would have let him (stoner). Bill Walton is a just a big time stoner. Walton even admitted following the famous druggie band “Grateful Dead” and remember how in order to be considered a Deadhead you had to embrace smoking pot as a rite of passage.
And though his use of marijuana is said to have stopped, there is no way. Just listen, look, and if you are cool enough…smoke try to smoke with the guy.
6. NBA/Chinese League Guard Stephon Marbury:
Former NBA star, Chinese League All Star Stephon Marbury admitted on camera that he’s personal friends with Mary Jane. After lighting up a suspicious joint on his live stream account, the former basketball star came clean that he was actually smoking a joint. Get’em Steph. Funny, now that he is playing basketball in China, imagine all the Chinese-munchie food my dude probably eats?
Check out Marbury lighting up!
5. NBA Forward Josh Howard:
Josh Howard is an idiot. Alright Josh tokes up like a champ, but he runs his mouth like a chump. Back in 2008, Dallas Mavericks forward Josh Howard admitted using marijuana in the off-season and then went en route of a rat, by saying that the majority of National Basketball Association players smoke marijuana on the regs.
“Most of the players in the league use marijuana and I have and do partake in smoking weed in the off-season sometimes,” Howard told an ESPN radio show…”I mean, that’s my personal choice and my personal opinion, but I don’t think that’s stopping me from doing my job.”
Check out FloppingOut favorite ESPN analyst Steven A. Smith go OFF on Howard. Preach my man!
4. Olympic Gold Medal Winner Michael Phelps:
We all knew Michael Phelps was a party animal when he was arrested for driving under the influence at the age of 19 in Salisbury, Marland. Damn steak would be a great munchie treat right now wouldn’t it?.Now although Phelps said it was an “isolated incident” on the Today Show, weed, party and paparazzi all came together in 2009.
In early 2009, a picture (above) by a British tabloid, The News of the World, showed Michael hitting a bong and although it was a single shot you can just tell from the pic that Mike knows how to hit that shit. I mean you know those people who always ask: how do I hit it? or where do I cover the hole? or how do you light it? or what should I (shut up bitch)? Phelps is not one of those, I can guarantee you that.
Plus, you know Phelps love the weed when he is the Best Swimmer of All-Time (38 world records, 59 medals) and doesn’t give a shit who sees him toking it up.
And you definitely know he loves to toke it up by his daily food regime cause Phelps brings the term “munchies” to a whole new level.
Breakfast: 3 fried-egg sandwiches loaded with cheese, lettuce, tomatoes, fried onions and mayonnaise. Two cups of coffee, a five-egg omelet, a bowl of grits, three slices of French toast topped with powdered sugar and three chocolate-chip pancakes.
Lunch- 1 pound of pasta, two large ham and cheese sandwiches slathered with mayo on white bread and 1,000 calories worth of energy drinks.
Dinner- 1 pound of pasta and entire 8 slice pizza. While having another 1,000 calories of energy drinks.
3. MLB Pitcher Tim Lincecum
Tim Lincecum is a freak on the baseball mound, and he smokes like a chimney because of it. In 2009, Lincecum was pulled over because a police officer smelt marijuana, and when they searched “the Freaks” car, they found 3.3 grams of MaryJane, a bowl, and a pipe. Timmy was fined a few thousand dollars later that year, and was free to keep blazing…
Now that that incident is over with, I think everyone liked Big Time Timmy Jim even more. I know I did, as well as the Giants faithful, they came out with these AWESOME “Let Tim Smoke” shirts a few months after his arrest.
Well like any stoner, or fatty, Timmy LOVES his fast food. Check out what Lincecum eats from the famous west coast burger chain “In-N-Out Burger“:
One chocolate-strawberry shake, two fries, ketchup, and three Double-Doubles, sans lettuce and tomatoes. “Double-Double” means double meat, double cheese… or the eleven pound (3,200 calorie) meal
After Tim and the Giants won the World Series last season, ESPN had a post game interview in which he let everyone know what he was hoping the people of San Francisco were doing to celebrate. Timmy’s a FloppingOut favorite, and one of the biggest potheads out. How can you not agree with the shirts, just Let Tim Smoke god damn it
2. NFL Running back Travis Henry:
Former Buffalo Bill, Tennessee Titans, and Denver Broncos running back Travis Henry is no stranger to the law. Henry has been arrested multiple times. Henry received his first suspension with the Tennessee Titans in 2005 for Mary J and was hit with a 4 game suspension. After being released in 2006 by Tenn, despite a productive season (1,211 yrds, 7 tds), Henry was pciked by the Denver Broncos on March 5th, 2007.
After leading the league in rushing after the first 4 games of ’07, Henry got hurt and soon after was suspended for 1 year for violating his 2nd Mary J drug test. The league even fined Mike Shanahan for publicly supporting Henry.
Then the funny thing is, Henry appealed and actually PASSED a lie-detector test, and a hair follicle test during the court hearings, stating that the positive test was from “second hand smoke.” So the Broncos got their boy back in 2008 and it all looked bright for Henry, “I want to make it right to the Broncos, the fans and myself…I want to clear my name there” Henry told the Bronco faithful.
But come on you are not #2 on the FloppingOut list for just two violations…
Henry was released by the Broncos on June 2, 2008 despite just signing a 5 year $22.5 million contract. Then it was reported on July, 12, 2008 that in May of that year, just 5 months after winning his “second hand smoke appeal” Henry was again found positive for marijuana. Travis just loves them greens.
Henry was suspended 1 year in August, and then in September Henry was AGAIN arrested by DEA after allegedly being involved in a multi-kilogram cocaine transaction that occurred in Colorado, weed was probably involved just not relevant when you have that Snow…….MAN. Henry was portrayed by court documents “as the ruthless ‘money guy’ in a cocaine trafficking ring” was eventually sentenced to three years in federal prison for financing a cocaine trafficking operation.
Here is a tribute to TRAVIS HENRY, WEED and THIS LEADS US TO our #1 TOKER…
1. NFL Running back Ricky Williams:
Ricky is EASILY number 1. If you retire from the NFL at the age of 27, in the prime of your career, because of marijuana not only have you LOST IT but you love those trees. After his retirement Ricky quickly went to California to get a prescription for Medical Marijuana. Then Ricky went to Australia and India where he smoked all day, watched birds fly, converted to Hinduism, studied an ancient Indian holistic medicine Ayurveda and smoked even more. We understand Ricky had social problems, and a troubling upbringing, but seriously Ricky your loco homie and love the weed.
Williams was diagnosed with SAD (Social Anxiety Disorder) and said that marijuana was a type of “psychotherapy” rather then taking the drug doctors prescribed, PAXIL.
After coming back in 2005, Williams served out a 4 game suspension and played very little in 2005. In 2006 he was suppose to play more but WHAT DO YOU THINK happened? Ricky failed a weed test for a 4th time and missed the entire 2006 season. That year he also claimed he no longer needed marijuana, but does not criticize others’ choices on the matter.
Then, in April 2007 what do you think happened… YUP RICKY TESTED POSITIVE FOR A 5TH TIME but was in the Canadian League that year so it didn’t earn him a suspension in the NFL. In all Ricky Williams failed a reported FOUR BUT MOST LIKELY FIVE drug tests in the NFL. Ricky may be weird but if you’ve smoked with em…tell me Ricky doesn’t know where to get the best weed this side of Jamaica?
Now we know basically everyone in the world smokes a little budsonya every now and then, so it’s not like these guys are criminals, (except for Mike Vick and Travis Henry of course) they just love to toke every now and then, and then, and then, and then again.
We’ll let you go grab some buds, a dutch, and celebrate your holiday you stony boloneys. LESS GET IT…
