Those of you who follow the "foot ball" probably already know that Albert Haynesworth was suspended by the Redskins for the rest of the season. But did a grainy cellphone photo of the linebacker hanging out at American Tap Room at Reston Town Center last week seal the deal?
Haynesworth claimed he was "sick" and that's why he was late Friday morning and practiced so poorly on Thursday. (He was healthy enough that he still wanted to play against the Giants on Sunday.)Haynesworth
I was out at a bar in Reston Va last Thursday night. It was around 1:30 in the morning and guess who stumbled in but Albert Haynesworth, with two or three very petite young things. He had a drink in hand and hung out for a bit over in the corner near the bathroom.
Haynesworth was out at the american tap room until 2am thursday morning (that is wednesday night into thursday morning). A waiter there showed Haynesworth’s bill to a comcast reporter (apparently Haynesworth likes the drink: Skinny Bitch on the Rag). The comcast reporter checked with players who said that Haynesworth was definitely hung over. So they reported it. Haynesworth himself admitted that he was out till “closing” at the Tap Room, but said he stopped drinking “around 12:30 or so”.One person imagined the conversation the next day:
Shanahan: You look like hell! Where were you last night?!So, um, yeah. All we can say is that we're not exactly sure a wild night out in the Fake Downtown is worth losing a $115 million contract. At least not unless the evening ended with all-you-can-eat breadsticks at the Macaroni Grill, the end.
Haynesworth: Reston! [crosses fingers]
Haynesworth: That's what I said.
Update: Now this is just plain cruel. But funny.
