The Year's Least Likely Sports Crime

News Item: Marvin Harrison questioned in North Philadelphia shooting

I think it's safe to say that no one saw that one coming. A respected player who has never had any significant trouble with the law, Harrison is known as the NFL's only great receiver who's not a complete jackass. It remains too early, of course, to know what happened, and I'll reserve further comment on the case until more is known (the victim, for what it's worth, lived.)

I didn't hear much WIP this weekend, but I'm going to guess at least one caller's reaction to this was to somehow wish Harrison onto the Eagles. He is, after all, a Big Time Receiver, one who is a Philadelphia native and a college teammate of Donovan McNabb. I wouldn't bet on that, though. If these legal troubles were to cause the Colts to drop Harrison, I'd imagine he'd be suspended, and not able to go to another team.
