Somehow Im surprised but at the same time Im not. I should have known that he would fall into this trap because just about every young athlete falls into the party life. But I actually thought for a while Adu may be diffrent, he seemed like a smart kid with good handlers. And I was sure that the MLS would do everything not to see the future of the league end up doing something too stupid.
Did someone have a pool on this?

Being a 15-year old at a college party is hardly only a privilege for athletes. I actually think its great that he's not some soccer-playing robot and that he seems to still have some normalcy in his life.
(I mean, didn't the girl Kobe took to the prom say she ended up watching basketball highlight videos with him instead of doing what "normal" prom attendees tend to do afterward? Not that we should all be sending our 15-year olds to college campuses for hook-ups and booze, but it's not like he was smoking crack and buying hookers or anything. I remember what I thought of the sophomores and juniors who didn't EVER go to parties back then...)

I think Silva's excuse falls under the Principal Skinner-saying-he's-a-virgin strategy of "admit to something embarrassing to cover up a lie, since nobody will believe anyone would make up something so humiliating."
