The man in the above photo is Plaxico Burress, an NFL player who recently signed a 5-year $35 million contract extension.

I am not going to pretend to have known who this guy was prior to his arrest, but he shall be forever known as the Idiot Who Shot Himself in the Thigh While Carrying A Gun in His Waist Band Inside of a Night Club. Get this man an award. He has officially nocked Michael Vick out of the top spot for dumbest thing a man can do to screw up a million dollar gig.
