Cameron Maybin is not an innocent man, but he totally picked the worst timing.
Right after the physical altercation from Larry Baer, we get another low blow at the San Francisco Giants.
What’s even more ironic is that the police cam footage happened last Friday, the same day of the Baer fiasco!
But just from this footage, I can only see the admission of stupidity that I think, for once, is fairly genuine.
So let’s dissect a bit.
Cameron ‘Maybin’ a Bit Tipsy
First and foremost, I do not condone drunk and driving. Anyone (even my girlfriend) is doing a stupid thing when driving under the influence and possibly hurting unsuspecting drivers or pedestrians.
With that said, Cameron Maybin has probably the most honest and unremarkable DUI arrest of all time. And that’s a good thing.
Throughout the whole video, I was waiting for Maybin to lash out at the officer, or the office to completely lash out at him.
For someone that had plenty to drink, I think Maybin was literally like an hour tops from being sober. I mean sure, he failed much of drunk test shit, but I’m stupid enough to fail that after drinking half a Corona.
Also, he didn’t even try to bullshit his way out of an arrest. It’s almost like he wanted to be treated like everyone else. Not this stupid “mightier than thou” athlete.
He even mentioned having a game as if he’s fresh out of high school. What a humble guy!
And another thing. Sure, we could mock a guy for crying in front of a cop, but come on, we’ve all been there.
Don’t tell me Maybin is the only grown ass man that has cried over being arrested. I think any non-convict or well-to-do person has shed tears when getting put in handcuffs.
There was never a mention of a phone call or some snarky remarks. This is clearly a good guy who had a few to drink and clearly didn’t sober up enough.
I mean, for fuck’s sake, look up all these top 10 DUI celebrity meltdowns and you’ll know why I’m so shocked about Maybin’s behavior. Here are some quick, descriptive highlights on some of them:
- Adrien Broner: Acted like a complete idiot in front of police, and did not follow all the instructions! Points for flirting with a cop though!
- Tiger Woods: Just look it up, it’s pathetic.
- Seferian Jenkins: Offers touchdown ball to an officer (nice try Buckaroo).
So congrats Maybin, you are the MVP of DUI’s, and you don’t deserve whatever happens next!
Just Give Him The Suspension!
Okay, I’m done gushing about Cameron Maybin. But I think the timing is exactly why people are already talking about his future.
Maybin had just made the roster move with the SF Giants, and now, it’s going to come to a question by the not just world, but the whole team.
And unfortunately, it doesn’t look good, especially when the team already looks like a chicken with its head cut off.
I think I give more respect to Maybin for fucking apologizing. Because it was a lot more honest and felt a lot more grounded than whatever Baer and his wife pull out of their ass.
