Keep Dreaming Fred Smoot

Fred Smoot is notorious for being one of the Minnesota Vikings players aboard the notorious sex boat. He and about 15 teammates rented two boats in 2005 and went out on Lake Minnetonka and partied aboard the boats, having all sorts of sex, fun and debauchery.

Well, what seems like is years after the fact, Smoot is now saying nothing happened.

“Nothing happened on that boat,”

“I wasn’t the organizer. I was the new guy. I was along for the ride. The media took the four guys with the biggest contracts — me, Daunte Culpepper, Bryant McKinnie and Moe Williams — and blew the story out of proportion.”

Smoot pleaded guilty to disorderly conduct, was fined $1,000 and performed 48 hours of community service. He also was fined one game check — about $82,000 — by the NFL.

“Look at the criminal charges: Disturbing the peace. A $1,000 fine,” Smoot said. “Do you think that’s what it would’ve been if anything had happened?”

Smoot said that, in fact, nothing did happen.

I see, football player profiling. Then how does Uncle Freddy explain the complaints by all the other boaters on the same lake? What about all the women who were on there, what were they there for, to make summer salads? Come on Fred, most of us wish we could put on a music video style sex boat party. Don’t hide from it; embrace it.
