There's somethings that you just don't tell people; especially a highly read magazine company.
ESPN The Magazine has a feature called "Postcards From The Edge." In it, pro athletes provide anecdotes regarding their lives.
In the latest issue, which hits newsstands Friday, Chiefs wide receiver Dwayne Bowe possibly says too much.
Bowe talks about the behind the scenes of road trips and hotel visits.
"My rookie year, we were playing in San Diego," Bowe says. "You hear stories about groupies hanging out in hotel lobbies, but some of my teammates had it set up so there was a girl in every room. The older guys get on MySpace and Facebook a week before we go to a city; when a pretty one writes back, they arrange to fly her in three or four days in advance. They call it importing."
Yes, Dwayne Bowe said that, and yes, that could be prostitution. But wait, that's not all.
"Younger guys don't have the money to do it," Bowe added. "Anyway, these girls had the whole top floor. They know everything about us—first and last names, sisters and brothers, salary. This one girl was talking to me like she'd known me for years. 'Hey, D-Bowe, how's Grandma?' I'm like, 'How do you know my grandma?' She knew that I talk about her every time I'm interviewed for a story."
Seriously, D-Bowe needs to shut up right about now.
He is way too comfortable with this reporter, and I'm sure he has a nice meeting coming up with, not only the Chiefs front office, but his teammates who will be pissed to find out he leaked this.
But wait, there is more.
"I told her I had a girlfriend, but she didn't care. She was wearing my jersey, sitting in my lap, making it look like we knew each other. Then she took a picture and put it on Facebook. That almost got me in trouble."
Good thing he got out of that trouble, because I'm sure there is more trouble coming his way.
This is a case of classic stupidity. How could he think that this was okay do?
Worse off, why would he tell a reporter for ESPN this stuff? Bowe has to know this is going to be published all over the country.
To say the least, I'm curious to see where the NFL takes this one...or better yet, the police.
