He looked like he didn't realize there was a step down there.

I'm not even sure if you can tell he was drunk.

He didn't look drunk at all to me. Read the comments on TMZ, they all call TMZ out on what they were implying. He just misjudged the curb step off b/c he was talking to his friend.

Either way, at least he took a cab! Responsible athletes!

That sounded like a hard landing off of the curb.

Wow, is this what "celebrity news" has fallen to these days? Jeez...

Was that Homer Bailey in the background? :cool:

Why is this even on the internet? Everyone who has the ability to walk has taken a bad step before.

I like how the people commenting are calling them out on how stupid this "story" is. Gives me hope for the intelligence of people on the internet.

That's the first time I've seen anything on the "TMZ" website and with that, I see no reason to ever visit that site again.

Pretty weak. Not even funny or remotely interesting.

Does Griffey even drink? I seem to recall hearing that he does not.

In his years with the Reds, how could he not?

Well if the Reds were all drunk on Monday it would explain their defense.

The fact we're applauding him for taking it says a lot about our society.

In a way this brings up some of the difficulties of a west coast trip. Here he is having dinner after the game that ended at around 1am eastern or body time. The travel really must be difficult to adjust to and expet to play well.

No, he does not.

News flash! Junior caught having a life!
Griffey amused by paparazzi video
LOS ANGELES - Ken Griffey Jr. got his taste of the paparazzi Monday night.

Griffey went to dinner with a friend, Tony Todd, who is also an actor and a good friend of Charlie Sheen, after the Reds' game with Los Angeles Dodgers.

The camera people were waiting when Griffey and Todd left a Hollywood steakhouse.

A video was shot of Griffey telling someone he'll leave him tickets, then turning to walk to a cab.

It showed up on TMZ.com under the headline: "Ken Griffey Jr. stumbles home."

The stumble? Griffey slightly missteps right before he gets in the cab.

"I wouldn't call it a stumble," Griffey said. "But I made TMZ."

"Stumble" seems to insinuate something.

"I wasn't drinking," Griffey said.

A videographer, who was waiting for Griffey when he came outside, took a shot at getting a reaction from Griffey.

"He asked me what I thought of Roger Clemens getting indicted," Griffey said.

There's no good answer to that question, so Griffey ignored it. He figures that's the reason the video showed up on TMZ.

Todd thinks the reason is money.

"I bet he could pay his rent with what he got for that," Todd said of the videographer.

Todd is very familiar with the paparazzi. He was the best man in Sheen's wedding.

"We were at my house and there would be 20 of them waiting outside," he said. "It gets crazy."

Griffey found the whole thing rather amusing.

Todd noted that Griffey offering to get tickets for someone wasn't mentioned.

"They're always looking for something bad," he said.

Tony Todd is the man. His performace as "The Candy Man" was nothing short of idioticly brilliant.
