Breaking news out of San Diego that comes as a complete shock to no one with half a brain:
Roidtard Shawne Merriman is having season-ending surgery to repair the torn tendons in his knee that he was attempting to play on. The only thing I can figure is that after his two tackle performance in the Carolina game the other day (during which he was in and out of the lineup), he went home and watched Friday Night Lights. After seeing Boobie Miles' career end when he tried playing on a busted knee, a light bulb went on over his head.
And no amount of slapping the light switch tattoo on his forearm was going to turn that light bulb off.
