Couldn't hold back T

Plaxico Burress couldn’t hold it in any longer he says in an interview with Men’s Journal.. “After my situation happened, I turned on the TV, and the first words out his mouth was ‘sad and disappointing,’ ” Burress said. “I’m like, forget support — how about some concern? I did just have a bullet in my leg. And then I sat in his office, and he pushed back his chair and goes, ‘I’m glad you didn’t kill anybody!’ Man, we’re paid too much to be treated like kids. He doesn’t realize that we’re grown men and actually have kids of our own.Referring to the way Manning treated him during his time in prison Burrs said “I was always his biggest supporter, even days he wasn’t on, ’cause I could sense he didn’t have thick skin,”  “Then I went away, and I thought he would come see me, but nothing, not a letter, in two years. I don’t want to say it was a slap in the face, but I thought our relationship was better than that.” Burress described that he was treated like an “axe murderer” in prison, confined to a 23-hour lockdown. In prison, he said he received cruel letters. “I was a human pincushion; they were like, ‘Yeah, we finally got you, mother[bleeper!]’ “ he said. “On the cover of the New York Post, it said ‘GIANT IDIOT’! and I’m thinking, ‘Damn, I went and gave ’em what they wanted. I’m just another gun-toting, famous black athlete.’ ” Gonna be a great season, I think the giants might surprise people this year. -TO
