Not "quite" as stupid as the others, but considering he was in contract negotiations with the Giants, this could cost him millions...

Giants’ Jason Pierre-Paul reportedly damages hand in fireworks accident (updated) - The Washington Post

Quote:
TMZ reported Sunday, citing “sources familiar with the situation,” that Pierre-Paul had “suffered bad injuries to some of his fingers and his thumb.”

The Giants had offered Pierre-Paul had a one-year tender worth $14.8 million, but he had yet to sign it, hoping for a longer-term deal. The team may choose to rescind the offer, making the two-time Pro Bowler, who had 12.5 sacks last season, an unrestricted free agent.

See quote above. In the Golden Triangle, it's spelled "bate".

Odds? As the OP would say, numbers is hard.

Well, here we lack Miller Light and gators, but I think we have enough tattoos to conclude that we are sho 'nuff Southerners.
