Larry Johnson going to court--he did this altogether too often. (Kansas City Star)
Larry Johnson, running back, was released by the Kansas City Chiefs this morning. The Chiefs discovered they could live without him.
LJ had some good years, but could not stay healthy later in his career. His attitude problems could not be overlooked any more. He might get picked up by another team for a quick fix, but I personally would not add him to my team.
I am a New Yorker by birth, and have been a life long Giants, Jets and Mets fan. (I never could really get into rooting for the Yankees.) I moved to Vermont for my high school years. I lived in the Philadelphia area for several years. Then I returned to Vermont to live. Now, I have been in Kansas City for twenty years. I am a Royals and Chiefs fan. I'm a graduate of the University of Vermont. My tax dollars go to MU, but I am an all around fan of our area Big 12 colleges. I love living in a town with a vibrant sports scene, where sports news gets more comments than any other news. I am passionate but thoughtful. I don't call names. However, if someone needs a butt kicking, I'll give it. So, that's where I'm coming from.
