    Accidental or not, there's a price to be paid for being a lunkhead in a... umm... fishbowl.

    Having said that, after getting past the reflexive defensiveness/finger-wagging, the memes and comments on this are hilarious. There's something inherently ridiculous about nationally-televised press conferences over $32 in seafood anyway, so may as well have fun with it.

    Maybe he thought it was part of the NCAA's new food allowance to the athletes. He may have thought he could go into any store and pick out what wanted and not pay for it.

    My wife and I were grocery shopping one day and checking out using a U-Scan aisle. I thought she paid, she though I paid, and we both walked out without paying. We didn't notice until we were in the car driving away. She ran back in and paid the bill. I am not saying Winston did this (I think he decided to use the Peter Warrick 5 finger discount) but it is possible that you can leave a grocery without paying.

    When I was in college 15 years ago, I lived next to a large grocery store. I needed shaving cream, and a couple other small things. I didn't get a cart, put the shaving cream in my winter coat pocket as I got some bread and lunchmeat. I paid for the bread and lunch meat, went home, and then the next day realized that I had the shaving cream still in my coat pocket, and had not paid for it. I didnt go back, because I figured I would get in trouble, or one of the poor workers would get in trouble for not seeing me. 15 years later I remember stealing $1.99 worth of shaving cream.
    Hugs, smiling, and interactive Twitter accounts, don't mean winning baseball. Until this community understands that we are cursed to relive the madness.

    "This isn’t stats vs scouts - this is stats and scouts working together, building an organization that blends the best of both worlds. This is the blueprint for how a baseball organization should be run. And, whether the baseball men of the 20th century like it or not, this is where baseball is going."---Dave Cameron, U.S.S.

    21 hours? coming out when suspended fully dressed was stupid, I wonder if he thought they would just put him in because of who he is.

    Someone please give me hope FSU will get desparate and put him in in the second half. I want to see all hell break loose with the talking heads if that happens...is he eligible?

    Here's a different perspective on the whole Jameis Winston and FSU situation.

    Re: Things Getting Ugly in Tallahassee

    I'm a Florida State guy, and even I thought that article was over the top.

    Having said that, the reaction to the latest incident was also over the top. I had no problem with him being suspended -- eventually, being a recidivist lunkhead had to have consequences -- but like with the stuff happening in the NFL, it became a hot-take cesspool, with people competing to be the most outraged. That's why I rolled my eyes at the SEC conspiracy thing (even if some of the hottest takes on FSU routinely come from people employed by the SEC Network). It's just the way the media operates today and it's up to Winston to stop giving them ammo.
