That falls so very short of my expectations for "bonus dashcam video" that it falls dangerously close to "hottie".

Seconded. I was expecting dash cam footage showing him reaching for a hot slice before comically dropping it on his balls, screaming like a little girl, throwing his hands in the air leaving the wheel to spin wildly out of control.

Boo stubby. Boo.

You know what. I stand by that. This doesn't deserve correction. Stubby.

The accident happened on westbound I-696 near Drake Road in the City of Farmington Hills around 2:25 a.m.

Proof that nothing good happens after midnight.

Yep, he was getting pizza at that time. Because all the best pizza joints in the Detroit suburbs stay open after 2:00 a.m.

That particular section of highway is pretty straight and wide open, at least at 2:30 in the morning.  I'm having trouble understanding how a pizza box falls off a car seat when cruising at highway speed absent a sudden move like swerving to avoid an animal.  Not saying something like that didn't happen, but I think if there were some good external reason why such a sudden motion might have occurred, it would have been reported.  I think there's something else as the underlying cause, like falling asleep at the wheel, or texting, and the pizza was just the excuse he gave when the cops arrived.

I'm going with oral sex, provided by someone other than Mrs. Burleson.

Matt Stafford has to keep the none Calvin Johnson recievers happy.

Welp, this really sucks!  Not only was he having a great year, he's also one of the best vets on the Lions.

Hopefully, the team can trade for someone because I don't see Broyles or Edwards stepping up.
 
2013-09-24 07:12:09 PM
And?  Did he manage to save the pizza, or not?

As a Bears fan, allow me to respectfully say, "What a shame!", and then the disrespectful "lulz" start.

Jesus christ man there are just some things you don't ask.

Maybe Pizza was her stage name.

Best pizza EVER!


while it is good that is not even the best pizza in southeast MI
That title belongs to Tomatoes Apizza
While the best Detroit style is the originator Buscemis

Anyone who is inclined to change the name to Nate Burleson, feel free.

It was Happy's Pizza.  Dude, Happy's is about as bad as Little Caesar's.  If it wasn't free (because he was doing an appearance at the store), I'm sure he would have gotten it from pretty much anywhere else.

Lots of good pizza places in metro Detroit -- Aubrees, Jet's, Marcos, Buddy's, etc. -- but Happy's is NOT one of them.

You just knew there was no way the Lions had a chance of having a good season.  The curse will only get worse.

Jet's is pretty amazing for chain pizza. The even expanded down to Raleigh. Sadly a few months after I moved. I would kill to have one out west. Square deep dish can't be beat.

/knew the owner of Cloverleaf before he died
//that's some damn good pizza too
