Bryant McKinnie is the latest player to back out of playing in the Pro Bowl on Sunday.
In his own special way.
McKinnie, the Minnesota Vikings left tackle, has actually been booted from the NFC squad, according to Mark Craig of the Minneapolis Star Tribune. McKinnie was told to take a hike after blowing off practice and the team photo on Friday and then no-showing for the walk through this morning.
It’s not like McKinnie hasn’t been busy. He’s shared the details, or some details, of his nightlife the last few days. He did some clubbing Thursday night and then started at a barbecue at the Clevelander on Friday night before heading to KOD’s which stands for King of Diamonds, a gentleman’s club. Fortunately, there has been no report of rain.
So, now McKinnie can begin plotting where he’ll be hanging Sunday night, because it won’t be in uniform for the NFC squad. And feel free to include your own Lake Minnetonka joke here.
