PHOTO OF THE LAST TIME JOSH HAMILTON FELL OFF THE WAGON
Poor Mrs. Josh Hamilton. She has stuck by her husband, Texas Rangers outfielder and former AL MVP Josh Hamilton, through years of his addictions to alcohol, crack and heroin. Now, she’ being publicly humiliated. Again.
Hamilton’s feel-good story of overcoming addiction (mostly) has been well chronicled by the national media. Particularly since he has played in the national spotlight during each of the last two seasons in the World Series. However, Hamilton has had two very public and very humiliating relapses. The first came in 2009 when Hamilton was photographed doing shots and licking whipped cream off a girl’s breasts in a bar. Hamilton’s latest drunken fiasco occured January 30th.
Although Hamilton has publicly admitted indiscretions and even addressed the second matter with a press conference, he didn’t provide any details about the incident. Don’t worry, the website Deadspin.com has. Deadspin, which was not able to ruin Hamilton’s marriage with their 2009 photos, has a posting that will probably torch the Hamilton’s relationship. The story tells about Hamilton having anonymous sex with a woman who was a complete stranger. The sex allegedly occured in the restaurant’s mens room following a rousing bout of karaoke.
Deadspin also reported on a rumor that somebody tried to sell a Dallas tv station a camera phone “sex tape” of the encounter.
