Ex-teammate calls Sanchez ‘stupid’

Basically, the story is this: Mark Sanchez was partying, and he took off his pants.

We can’t say, “Yeah, whatever, who hasn’t done that?” But we can say that if you went to college, odds are good you’ve seen something like this happen at least once in your life.

So the New York Jets quarterback isn’t really “in trouble” for this, it’s just that people like to take videos of famous people doing regular-people stuff, and people really like to have good laugh at Sanchez’s expense.

Sanchez has a real knack for satisfying both of those urges. Or, as former Jets QB and teammate Erik Ainge told Metro, “He’s stupid while being stupid.”

But the trouble is, famous people don’t always have the luxury of just being stupid in their own homes anymore. Technology has made this a reality.

Ainge elaborated, and he should know a thing or two about being dumb while being dumb. In 2008 the NFL suspended him four games during his rookie season for violating the league’s policy on steroids and related substances. In 2010 Ainge entered a treatment facility for recreational substances. He announced his retirement in 2011 without ever playing a snap and now hosts a sports talk show in Tennessee.

“Now it’s become a thing to try and catch Mark doing something stupid,” Ainge said. “He’s never breaking the law. Look at Aaron Hernandez — Mark Sanchez is child’s play in the NFL, as far as off-the-field stuff. I’d know as good as anybody — what Mark does off the field is child’s play.

"He’s dumb about it. He’s stupid while being stupid. You have to be smart while being stupid, and he’s dumb while being dumb. Look at the butt video. He needs someone he trusts there when Mark wants to go streaking through his own condo.”

Hernandez was charged with murder this week and released by the New England Patriots.

So, yeah, that’s all fair. But after the famous Butt Fumble and now this, Mark Sanchez and butts might just need to go their separate ways.
