Pacman Jones Obviously, Indelibly Connected to Dog Fighting

Faithful KSK reader "naptowndrew" sent us this photo of Pacman Jones holding a pit bull puppy, conclusive evidence that Jones is closely tied to the seedy underworld of dog fighting.

So, like, what do I do now? Do I keep up with the fake-news format of claiming Pac is into dog fighting? Should I make up a conversation between Michael Vick and him at Bad Newz Kennels? Do I proclaim "caption contest!" and try to make a bigger deal out of it than it really is? (C'mon, do I look like The Big Lead?)

Frankly, none of it seems all that inspiring. It's a fucking picture, that's all. A picture of a troubled NFL star and a puppy. Hell, it very nearly humanizes a man whose off-field exploits have been marked mostly by violence and misogyny. Holding a puppy and making what white people think is a peace sign is a huge step forward for the guy.

(Semi-off-topic: for anyone who's interested in reading more about dog fighting, add Craig Davidson's Rust and Bone to your reading list. It's a collection of stories about fighting so visceral and hard-hitting that I generally needed a break between them to recover mentally. The prose is gritty, spare, and staccato. And while only the second story in the book, "A Mean Utility," is about dog fighting, it's the most grim and realistic depiction of dog fighting I've seen.)

"it's the most grim and realistic depiction of dog fighting I've seen." The only conclusion that can be drawn from that is that you, sir, must have witnessed dog fighting first hand to know how real a depiction it is.

Are you the managing partner of Bad Newz Kennelz?

How could we know?

I just want to see how Pac makes it rain on those wrasslin' pansies over at TNA.

Peace out.

Did that dude get his bling from the Army's mailing list?

Well he did live in West Virginia and you know there is so many exciting things to do with your spare time when you're not making it rain.

Goodell's going to fine Pac Man for phat pharming.

"Too tired to be inspired" is going to be the tag on my online obituary.

Pacman is an avid dogfighter.

Not in the way you think. He actually spars against wild dogs in his spare time.

Pacman is a huge Fat Joe fan. We're all familiar with his tribute to "Make It Rain" earlier this year. This is his tribute to "Lean Back."

Either that or Pacman is a wimpy bitch that can't hold a puppy and flash a peace sign without leaning on one of the homies.
