This is freaking hilarious, Irvin is talking about it on ESPN right now. He sounds so stupid, "it was a friend of mines"

Ofhsdhfdhsfdsohhsdhsds

DALLAS -- Former Dallas Cowboys receiver Michael Irvin said Sunday night that a drug pipe police found in his car belonged to a longtime friend whom he's trying to help recover from an addiction.

Irvin, an ESPN studio analyst and semifinalist for the Pro Football Hall of Fame, was charged with misdemeanor possession of drug paraphernalia after police searched his vehicle during a traffic stop Friday.

Irvin told The Associated Press late Sunday the pipe belonged to a friend of 17 years who left a Houston rehab center and came to Irvin's house in Carrollton for Thanksgiving. Irvin wouldn't reveal his friend's name.

ESPN said it has spoken to Irvin, who will still appear on the network Monday as an analyst.

"We've talked to Michael, who explained the situation to us the way he did to the AP, and we will continue to talk with Michael," ESPN spokesman Josh Krulewitz said. "But you can expect him to see him on 'Monday Night Countdown' on Monday evening."

Irvin said he put the pipe in his car because he didn't want it in his house where his children might find it. He said he planned to drive somewhere the next day, like a grocery trash bin, and throw the pipe away but forgot.

"It's a situation that is not as it seemed," said Irvin, whose voice was choked with emotion during the telephone conversation.

"I know the type of demons they have to fight and I am going to help them, because it's the only way I can keep them from getting to my family. I have to clean up my friends because they are around my boys. It's upsetting."

Irvin was arrested on an outstanding warrant for speeding in Irving after being pulled over Friday afternoon for speeding in Plano. Irvin said he thought he had paid the outstanding ticket.

Irvin paid a fine on the speeding ticket and posted bond on the drug paraphernalia possession charge. He was released about an hour after he was pulled over.

Irvin was a member of three Super Bowl championship teams with the Cowboys. Asked how this kind of publicity might affect his chances of induction into the Hall of Fame, Irvin said his helping his friends is more important.

"The whole thing means such a great deal for me, and hopefully one day it will be there," Irvin said. "But my friends and my family mean a little more. I would rather be helping them, even if it hurts that."

In 1996, Irvin pleaded no contest to felony cocaine possession in exchange for four years of deferred probation, a $10,000 fine and dismissal of misdemeanor marijuana possession charges. Irvin said Sunday he's always been transparent and open about his issues in the past, and now wants to help others through those same problems.

Irvin, a member of three Super Bowl championship teams with the Cowboys and known as "The Playmaker" during his 12-year career with Dallas, retired in July 2000. He has been paired at ESPN with veteran host Chris Berman, Tom Jackson and Steve Young on the main set of Sunday NFL Countdown since 2003.

Irvin holds Cowboys records for catches (750), receiving yards (11,904) and 100-yard games (47), including a team-record seven in a row in 1991.

In September of this year, Irvin and former Cowboys teammates Troy Aikman and Emmitt Smith were together added to the Ring of Honor together, a recognition of the players most associated with the Cowboys' last Super Bowl titles.

god, i hate him so much. it's probably his. you know those florida st. boys (and miami hurricanes) are all drug addicts and ex-cons. not to mention, how many of those dallas cowboys got arrested? like half the team? so pathetic. i'm sick of stupid thugs and their excuses. and then irvine gets on TV and spouts all this crap that i have to listen to, and all this crap about devin hester being the most dangerous player in college football (what a joke that turned out to be).

i'd like to see him prove his innoncence too.

Stuart Scott never talked that way when he was first hired. It's something that ESPN probably put him up to in order to attract more audiences.

why would such a rich guy smoke crack?  Blow costs more and it's not as bad as crack.  Crack is for desparate folks.

as far as announcers and "talk[ing] normal" when it comes to entertainment its like going to an adult club, u know the deal going in. they are for entertainment purposes and though they are considered to be a reliable source of info they are an entertainment company. entertainment is part of the name Entertainment and SPorts Network. they dont "talk normal" and won't be any time soon. if i had to rank the announcers i'd say Screamin' A, Stu Scott and Irvin, at least Screamin' doenst say Boo-Yah.

to answer the post above me, yes blow=crack. its belief that the crack dealers also mix is some things that arent crack. but im sure that happens to blow too.

I am very, very sure that crack is not referred to as blow only cocaine.

That said if the man is hooked on a drug it doesn't matter how much money he makes he's going to do it. Maybe he's just frugal? ;)

As for the type of speech on ESPN, remember it is a business. I am certain they have consultants who detail who their demographics are and what the audience focus groups respond well to. What would you rather have than "boo-ya"? Is "boom goes the dynamite" better? :rofl:
