And the "Thuggin Ain't Easy" Award Goes To...

Plaxico Burress, Ladies & Gentlemen!!!

From our local NY Daily News:

"Ex-Super Bowl hero Plaxico Burress accepted a plea bargain Thursday that will land the talented but troubled wide receiver behind bars for two years.

The agreement with the Manhattan district attorney came nine months after Burress, 31, shot himself through the thigh with an illegal .40-caliber Glock inside a crowded nightclub.

The deal was reached just three days after the Giants' first exhibition game of the year. Burress entered his plea early Thursday to a reduced count of attempted criminal possession of a weapon.

Burress - who caught the game-winning touchdown in the Giants' 2008 Super Bowl win over the Patriots - testified before a grand jury last month in a "Hail Mary" attempt to beat the rap.

But he was instead indicted him on two counts of weapons possession and reckless endangerment. The 6-foot-5 Burress had faced 3 1/2 to 15 years if convicted."

Need we say more?
