Remember when Wes Welker was handing out $100 bills at the Kentucky Derby a few months back and you were thinking to yourself, How messed up was this guy? Well, now we have a pretty good idea.
The Denver Broncos wide receiver and Oklahoma City native was suspended four games by the NFL for violating the leagues performance- enhancing drug policy. The alleged performance-enhancing drug?
Molly, aka MDMA, aka ecstasy, aka Oh my god everything is amazing!
A source told ProFootballTalk.coms Mike Florio that Welker took Molly that had been cut with amphetamines that day, presumably to make watching horses run in a straight line more tolerable. But the amphetamine part is why this was classified as performance enhancing, which is kind of ridiculous.
While Molly definitely does enhance things (er, so weve heard), were skeptical that playing football is one of them. In an email to The Denver Post, Welker denied the report in the best way possible.
I wouldnt have any idea where to get a Molly or what a Molly is, he said. Thats a joke. I dont do marijuana. I dont do drugs. I dont do any drugs.
Got that? Welker doesnt do marijuana so he obviously doesnt know what a Molly is. But, hey, the guy still knows how to party.
