he'd be a great addition :sofunny:

Fort Worth Star-Telegram columnist and Dallas talk-show host Randy Galloway bailed Quincy Carter out of jail Friday. Carter got busted for misdemeanor possession of marijuana and spent 12 hours in jail before Galloway spent $160 late Friday afternoon to set him free.

Well, not exactly.

But before I get to that part of the story, how about Quincy Carter -- the quarterback of America's Team just three years ago, the last Dallas quarterback to play a playoff game, sitting in jail all day? His one phone call failed to get him bailed out. What kind of life is this? And what kind of life is it when he gets bailed out, he's so broke he has to ask a local TV cameraman to drive him home -- in his TV news van?

Galloway never much liked Carter, the player or the man, when he played for the Cowboys, and he started the let's-bail-him-out thing while hosting his afternoon-drive show on KESN. He had his producer look in the yellow pages for a Dallas bail-bond outfit, and of course they picked Cowboy Bail Bonds. The bail was $160, but the place said they'd cut the fee to $100 because it was Carter, and it was a Cowboy. Then, after the show kept mentioning Cowboy Bail Bonds, the owner called Galloway and said, Heck, we're getting $10,000 worth of free pub here; you don't have to pay us a dime.

And so Carter got his get-out-of-jail-free card. Somehow, sadly, I don't think it's going to be his last brush with the law.


i wonder if his 1 call was to michael irvin or nate newton.
