Throughout his illustrious NFL career, Warren Moon was one of the game’s most exciting quarterbacks. He was phenomenal roaming outside of the pocket, a skill he took all the way to the Pro Football Hall of Fame. This past weekend, Moon’s name was again in the news but not in the way he’d like. He picked up a DUI.
Moon joins an incredibly long list of lush athletes that we’ve written about. Gustavo Chacin, Tony La Russa, Dontrelle Willis, and Jerramy Stevens are just a small selection. Moon has these guys beat because he’s a Hall of Famer. But unfortunately, he’s not the oldest recipient; Tony La Russa has him beat by a good 10+ years.
Unfortunately, this story isn’t as good as other DUI stories. King County, Washington prohibits the release of results of blood-alcohol testing. Therefore, we’re unable to find out how hammered Moon really was. If I had to guess, it’d be somewhere between Chacin’s .15 and La Russa’s laughable .093.
Moon was stopped at 2 AM this past Friday Night in downtown Kirkland. I can’t imagine Kirkland’s metropolitan area is too bustling, considering only 45,000 people live there. Nevertheless, Moon was able to evade the pass rush and get hammered. Then he jumped in his car and drove his impaired ass into the Sportable Criminal Hall of Fame.
