In 1986, a full 10 years before Irvin was arrested, Dexter Manley got hooked on cocaine. In fact he got hooked so bad that his drug use caused him to have a cyst on his brain that he had to have surgery on, and has caused him some memory loss. Manley revealed he learned about the cyst way back in 1986 when he was so lit up that he collapsed in a department store and hit his head. How wrapped up in coke was Manley? He says he is $12 million dollars in debt because of his addict lifestyle. That’s right folks, 12 with 6 zeros. Manley tested positive for cocaine 4 times and in 1991 was suspended from the NFL for life. He spent the last 2 years of his playing days in the Canadian Football League.
Now, someone is going to bring it up if I don’t, Manley also admitted he was illiterate, even though he graduated from college. That’s right, he couldn’t read or write. Some may mock this. I won’t. I respect Manley for having the courage to reveal this and to actually learn. It is however tragic that he had to learn to do these things in prison. He was sentenced to 4 years in prison, and served 2 of the 4.
The bottom line is this, mocking Michael Irvin while at the same time turning a blind eye to one of your own is pretty stupid. I would also like to point out that to my knowledge no Mayor of Dallas, or Irving, or Arlington has ever been videotaped in a hotel room smoking crack with a hooker. Google Marion Barry if you don’t know what I am talking about. You can certainly ask if Laura Miller was on crack to let the Cowboys leave town, Marion Barry actually was.
Moving on to the homosexual nonsense they like to reference. The last time I checked “Brokeback Mountain” was a movie. In other words, fiction. For those who don’t know (apparently many Skins fans) that means “not real.” I haven’t seen it. and probably never will. It just doesn’t interest me at all. However, I did read previews of the movie. First of all it takes place in Wyoming, not Texas. Second of all they are sheep herders. That’s right, sheep, not cows. The hat does not make you a cowboy any more than putting on a fireman’s helmet would make you a fireman.
