Enter Los Angeles Angels left-hander C.J. Wilson (no relation). On Wednesday, he took to Twitter to issue a PSA to fellow athletes about how not to wind up in stories like the ones above, whether they’re celebrating a holiday, a big contract or any other reason:
Advice to all pro athletes: instead of going out and possibly getting injured/ in trouble- just throw a pool party. Spring for DJ/ churros
That advice can be applied to non-athlete folk in society as well, of course. Whenever Independence Day weekend rolls around each year, fireworks and celebration-related activities make the news for unfortunate (and painful) reasons. Additionally, having a safe party is probably much, much less dangerous than one featuring more ‘extreme’ forms of entertainment.
