Amobi Okoye Celebrates His 21st Birthday Responsibly; This Blogger Cool With That

Filed under: Texans, AFC South, Houston, ESPN, BlogsAccording to Seth Wickersham of ESPN, Texans DT Amobi Okoye celebrated his 21st birthday on June 10th in big style but responsibly:
Okoye, who last year was the youngest NFL player in 30 years, was sober and happy and wasn’t photographed doing anything stupid. Bloggers might be bummed, but kids who look up to him aren’t.
I can’t speak for all bloggers because we aren’t a collective who thinks in lockstep (duh). Personally I would be ecstatic if Amobi Okoye and other talented athletes didn’t risk everything getting stupid drunk. It would also make me happier if Wickersham hadn’t promoted a wildly dangerous drinking practice in the structure of his article.

Wickersham organized his article by saying “let’s do 21 shots” to discuss Okoye’s birthday plans, and how he no longer wants to be defined by his age. It’s an allusion to how some 21 year olds celebrate their birthday by trying to drink 21 shots.

I’m not your mom, but I think it is worth mentioning that this newish binge drinking fad kills people. Being deaded or put into a alcohol-poisoned coma isn’t the best way to spend a birthday. You would think people would know that drinking 21 shots in short succession is dangerous, but apparently not. Education is the only way found to reduce the number of people doing this, and it’s not a good idea to normalize this behavior in a sports article.

Oh, and belated birthday greetings to Okoye. Sorry, I didn’t get you anything but I’m guessing with 400 people at your birthday party, you are doing okay in the gift department. Check out this link if you have interest in seeing Okoye photographed doing non-stupid things on his birthday. He is wearing a sweet suit. A bit heavy for June in Houston, but it can get cold in those overly air conditioned ballrooms.
