But How Will Tank Get To His Poetry Slams?

2006_02_sports_tank_johnson.jpg

Yesterday Tank Johnson was sentenced to 120 days in jail for violating probation and Channel 5 covered the story last night. While they were running video behind the reporter, they showed Tank doing slam poetry at a club while the reporter said something like, “From poetry to the playing field…” What?? Is this one of Tank’s famous hobbies, and nobody told me?? I googled “tank poetry” and came up dry. Tell me they didn’t weave that into the story because it’s the only stock footage they have of him off the field! Come on Channel 5 segment producers!! You couldn’t do any better than that? When I’m sent to jail for having 7 guns in my house, I hope they don’t show that footage of that one time I did the “Folk Off” at the Heartland Cafe. I wonder if Tank would want to do some of his poetry at the next Schadenfreude Rent Party. We could take the audience to his house if he’s still on house arrest…
