Now that we have established athletes are people too, and while their paychecks are big, that is something worth remembering, the criminal that got to Perkins is really dumb.
Not only did you steal from a professional athlete that will cause the likelihood of getting caught to go up, but you did so incredibly foolishly.
Sure, stealing in general is stupid, but a $20 Walmart trip and a vending machine, how dense can people get?
On another note, if you don’t follow Glen on Twitter, you’re doing it wrong. He is one of the most real, down to earth athletes, and his feed in genuinely a lot of fun. Take for instance his theft example, an otherwise stupid moment was a chance for a quick dig.
Good on you Glen for keeping it light, best of luck with the continued recovery, and hopefully the idiot ripping off your credit card turns himself in, I mean that would only be fitting right?
