Re: “Homer's night on the town

I lost 5 IQ points reading this. Fortunately, unlike Mr. Gillespie, I have a few to spare.

Re: “Homer's night on the town

Without a doubt, the best interview EVER! They have to invite him back to a game and be Homer -- legally -- for one (K)night.

If this magnificent bastard is not working in some official capacity for the Knights next year, well.....then the Knights are missing an opportunity.

Re: “Homer's night on the town

Based on just this article, seems like a decent, fun loving dude who made some bad (but innocent) choices. Like he said, he could have stolen more or done damage....he had some fun and the brains not to drive home. Good luck dude......

Re: “Homer's night on the town

Are we just going to ignore his statement about calling "Mr. Knight?" If it were a different sport, one has to assume he would have called Mr. Panther or Mr. Hornet.

Re: “Homer's night on the town

This same thing happened to wally the wyvern over in florida. Did you hear about it on the news? Did the guy face criminal charges? No, this is just the conservative media trying to keep wyverns down. They think that dragons are superior and are more important. Well wake up america! #wyvernlivesmatter #itsajokedontkillmeplease

Re: “Homer's night on the town

Kevin Queen, common theme here, being drunk. You left off the real funny part, they turned the sprinklers on you that night! A great Gamecock moment! I was there

Re: “Homer's night on the town

I did something similar in Omaha after South Carolina won their 2nd National Championship. No harm no foul. Police did not believe my friends that I was in stadium on the field at 230am local time. Said it was impossible. When I came out they told me never to do that again and I told them not to worry about it cause I was flying out the next morning. That was that. I hope Joe gets through this. Great story.

Re: “Homer's night on the town

I laughed til I cried over this. I wish I'd seen him last Saturday night. It is my dream to be in a mascot suit and do all that crazy stuff. Drop the charges and move on! We have murderers and real thieves to worry about. And the cops laughed. I would've too! How was he able to drink with the mascot head on?!?

Re: “Homer's night on the town

OK, he's guilty of being drunk and stupid, and who knows whether he'd really have returned the Homer regalia. But felony charges? The law's a poor instrument for dealing with buffoonery. Surely saner minds will prevail, and find a punishment to fit the crime.

Re: “Homer's night on the town

Are you kidding me? This guy really thinks he did nothing wrong? Waking up on someone else's property and taking their property, something that clearly does not belong to you, is a crime. Yup. Sorry dude, but you are in complete denial. Hope the judge orders you to rehab. Normal people don't blackout, pass out in unknow places, under stairwells....and go do the stuff you did.

Re: “Homer's night on the town

I once, inadvertently, entered an unlocked Volawagen dealership at 5:00 in the morning. My car had been towed there and I forgot that the key to my apt was on the keys I gave the tow truck driver. I could've made off with a few vehicles, but no, I just got my keys, politely answered the phone when the security company called (I may have been slightly intoxicated) and left. The owner of the dealership and I had a friendly chat the next day when I mentioned that they should lock the door, and I had a priceless voicemail from a sheriff deputy, but no charges were filed. I say Joe and I are the real hero's here. We turned from temptation :).

Re: “Homer's night on the town

I don't understand why Joe can't have a Go Fund Me account. Go Fund Me is FULL of scammers and Mother's that want money for the police shooting their kids for doing illegal things. The Stadium should have to suck it up, they left him in there.

Re: “Homer's night on the town

Reminds me of the night that the Network Operations Manager at one of the local banks decided to take home the Donkey Pinata that graced the old Casa Gallardo's on Wendover Rd. When he sobered up he couldn't figure out how to return it - so knowing that one of the manager's was my neighbor he left it on the front porch in the dark of night...and got clean away...

Greg Williams gets my vote for good legal advice
