No, we’re not talking about Brooklyn baseball. We’re talking Albert Haynesworth of the Tennessee Titans. Yesterday, with malice aforethought, Haynesworth spiked an opposing player in the aftermath of a touchdown. The injured man — Dallas’ offensive center Andre Gurode — was slashed by Haynesworth’s spikes. The wound reportedly required 30 stiches to close.
Set aside the irony that despite the fact Terrell Owens was on the field, the worst offense was committed by someone else. There’s no humor in this thuggery. The NFL will decide what punishment to impose on Haynesworth this week. Anything less than permanent expulsion from the game is too little.
