    What's the saying? Nothing good ever happens after 1 a.m.

    Now that my post has been deleted, F_B, this seems out of place. Do with it what you will.

    I can't make anything out of that tape, but clearly it wasn't a dark, isolated stretch of highway.

    If it turns out that he was drunk, I wonder if MADD will lobby for the team to take the patch with his number off the jersey?

    It doesn't take this long for toxicology reports on whether he was drunk or not to be released.

    It does if the authorities aren't releasing them

    Must be fun to see what you want to see, and to have the capacity to create a vivid, 3D image from a blurry, small, dim image on the internet. Pube, you have no fucking idea what happened, so shut up.

    Which leads me to believe that drinking is involved. If no alcohol or drugs, those findings are released pronto.

    Another strange twist in this story....

    It's highly unlikely that authorities will release anything before Thursday's funeral.

    Hancock wanted to drive his vehicle home from the Sauget police station but could not because the accident damaged its radiator. While waiting for a cab that eventually took him home, Delaney said, Hancock told another officer he hated following a Cardinals night game with a daytime one, and that he routinely drove around to make himself tired enough to rest, the chief said.

    "He said how he hated -- he used that word -- to play day games after a night game, that he had trouble sleeping and was out driving around," Delaney said.

    Hours later, Hancock showed up late at Busch Stadium for the Cardinals' day game against the Cincinnati Reds and insisted he thought the game time was later and had overslept in a new bed.

    The St. Louis Post-Dispatch reported on Monday, however, that a couple in a bar on the night Hancock died overheard the pitcher telling an ESPN radio personality that he "had spent all night drinking," and that's why he was late for the Thursday game.

    Baseball analyst Dave Campbell said that Hancock did not say anything like that, but the player did introduce himself that evening at Mike Shannon's Restaurant and Bar and the two talked baseball.

    Way to go SPD.

    I wouldn't bet on that. Too many unanswered questions. Besides, it doesn't take a week for those reports to come back.
