    Dear Yahoo,

    Burress is not going to jail for accidentally shooting himself. He's going to jail for illegally possessing a firearm.

    I think the law is pretty tough. I don't think there was any reasonable chance he wasn't going to get the 2 year sentence. Bottom line, no matter who you are, if you're going to walk around with a gun on your person, you'd better know the damn law.

    At least this might make other athletes and celebrities that think they are above the law think before they break the law

    At the risk of showing you all what a total nerd I am...every time I see this Burress thing mentioned on TV, and I see his face, I am reminded of the Star Trek Next Generation episode where they meet the Pakleds....the guys who say "We are not smart." It just goes through my head...each and every time.
