Former NFL Player Says Teammates Smoked Pot Before Super Bowl
He's been outspoken about gay rights and now, the former Baltimore Ravens and Chicago Bears linebacker is talking about marijuana.
Ayanbadejo played in two Super Bowl, winning one and losing one, and said that the week before one of them—he won't say which—some of his teammates got stoned. Via ESPN:
“I'm not going to say which Super Bowl it was, but I just remember getting off the elevator one night — it was early on in the [Super Bowl] week, just to start the week off — and all of the sudden I just got hit over the head with fumes of marijuana on the entire floor of the hotel that the team was staying on. … I could just imagine there were a few young guys just toking it up in more than one room.”
Ayanbadejo said he was not pleased, and almost sounds like a narc.
“I was like, 'Man, this is the week of the Super Bowl and you're just going in?'” Ayanbadejo said. “So then I was looking around, and I'm like, 'OK, where is the security?' I looked, and for some reason we didn't have regular police. Coach was smart enough to have rent-a-cops on our floor instead of regular police like we usually do.”
If only we can find out who it is then determine how he played. We could settle this argument once and for all.
