NEW YORK (AP)—Facing the prospect of spending at least 3 1/2 years behind bars, one-time Super Bowl star Plaxico Burress(notes) on Thursday accepted a plea bargain with a two-year prison sentence for accidentally shooting himself in the thigh at a Manhattan nightclub.

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 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.
