    ....as he sat in his apartment during the time of his death.

    Seriously.....is getting drunk in the house news?

    Considering that being intoxicated makes you more likely to speak unpleasant truths, it does shed some light on what happened.

    I would understand if they said he was drunk. But why tie it to being over some bar that doesn't exist in the home?

    That's reaching....

    'Ceptin' the story says the cops say McNair was likely asleep when he got shot.

    I guess he might have said something earlier, but, still, seems like an odd angle. And expressing his BAC as "twice the legal limit for driving" seems odd, to say the least.

    All that said, it's news, just not top of the wire news like it's being played now.

    Mentioning the driving limit and how far over he was simply puts it into context for a lot of people.

    And really, did anyone think he didn't have alcohol in his system?

    More non-news stories. Wonderful. What's next? A story about how he was wearing only one shoe at the time of the shooting?

    McNair: I'm not leaving my wife.
    Woman: You lying sunuvabitch.
    McNair: Whatever (passes out)
    Woman gets dumb idea, looks for gun.

    If there is, I bet you $1.47 that someone will start a thread about it.

    It is when you're a famous person plugged four times at close range.

    Dude drank before getting shot.

    Can't wait for the "Dude pulled his dick out before getting laid" AP ledes in the future.

    (I'm mostly kidding.)

    Maybe he was drunk dialing IJAG and it pissed Sahel off.
