Just days after photos surfaced of Matt Leinart drinking and hot tubbing with co-eds at Arizona State University, yet another scandal has surfaced.
In the pictures (which were not available at time of publication due to a bidding war), Leinart is stepping out of a limousine on his way to the Carl Hayden High School Senior Prom in Phoenix, Arizona.
Sketchy reports from inside the prom claimed that Leinart found the punch to be inadequate, the band to be lame and demanded a recount when he was not crowned Prom King.
It would seem that the young NFL quarterback, who has links and seeds spread all across the country, has been having the time of his life impressing younger women as young as 18 (he swears they were 18, anyways).
Neither Leinart nor his agent were able to be reached for comment. Instead we talked with psychology undergrad at ASU, Adam Wells.
When asked what his take on what exactly is going on in the head of Leinart, Wells responded matter-of-factly.
"Well, I would say that it has to do with his level of celebrity. He was a really big deal in college. He was the big fish in the small pond, as it were, being the quarterback for USC. Then he went to the pros much lower in the draft than expected, and he ended up with Arizona. That had to be a big blow to his ego, you know, going to the team where quarterbacks go to die."
"Well, I don't know that it has happened as much like this for pros, but you see, this kind of thing happens with jocks right out of high school. Remember the guys that were captain of the team and the big men around the halls. Then they went to college and realized that they weren't cool anymore and that they were on the low rung of the ladder? Then they would show up at high school dances? Same thing here, just much much sadder. I mean this guy is a millionaire and he is looking for 18-year-old girls to party with because it will make him look cool again. Just plain sad."
This reporter is left with no choice but to agree. It was bad enough that Leinart consciously chose to go to a college kegger to drink with some women, hot or not.
He could have gotten a piece just about anywhere, but he went where he would make the biggest splash.
And I don't even know what to make of this high school prom thing. Poor Matt Leinart. It's times like this that I don't envy his national title, awards, millions of dollars, square-jawed machismo and everything else that makes him better than me.
Oh yeah, and the tank top with the beer stains makes him look like he used his millions to buy the biggest trailer he could find at the park.
