Going streaking

Plax to the future
Finally, in a development known to the whole world by now, a grand jury passed down a formal indictment of New York Giants wide receiver Plaxico Burress. The Patriot-killer will be tried on two counts of weapons possession and one count of reckless endangerment. He could get a minimum of three and a half years if convicted, and it is hard to see how he will not be convicted, since he (allegedly) drunkenly discharged a weapon into his thigh in front of about a gazillion people. The only drama in this story was whether Plax would get to play one more season before being fitted with stripes. It doesn't look that way.
