Detroit Red Wings prospect Riley Sheahan became the latest in the long list of professional athletes to get in trouble with the law yesterday when he was arrested for driving drunk while dressed like one of the Teletubbies. You read right. The trouble started when cops saw Sheahan driving his car on the wrong side of the street in Grand Rapids and pulled him over. I guess since he was dressed like an English TV character he thought this was OK. Not only was his blood alcohol level four times what it should be, he was also dressed like infamous purple teletubby Tinky Winky. You will recall that the Teletubbies were a trippy 90's children's TV show from England about a race of weird creatures with TV's in their stomachs who were ruled over by a baby sun god. You may also remember that Jerry Fallwell once made an ass of himself claiming that Tinky Winky was gay because he is purple and has a know, like gay dudes do. Sheahan says he was coming from a costume party but I wonder if he's just covering up for his Teletubbies furry erotic cos-play. I guess it will all come out in the trial.
