No Maas! No Maas!

From the Star-Tribune, via the Associated Press:

Former NFL player and Fox Sports broadcaster Bill Maas was charged with drug possession and weapons charges following a roadside safety check.

The 45-year-old Maas and a passenger in his Hummer, Sarah J. Murphy, 27, were arrested late Friday by Illinois State Police. During the stop, police indicated Maas seemed nervous, and he agreed to a search of his vehicle.

Police found a .22-caliber revolver, 5 grams of suspected marijuana, 6 grams of suspected cocaine and 28 pills of Ecstasy. Maas and Murphy were charged with possession of a controlled substance and possession of marijuana. Maas was also booked on a charge of unlawful use of a weapon.

Short of passing this off as an explanation of his commentary "skills," I just have to wonder what the hell Maas was thinking here.  Pot, coke, E, and a loaded gun.  Methinks that Mr. Maas won't be back with Fox this season.  Or with anyone else.  Ever.  So, basically, in the end, the real winners are the fans.

Not that I'm really celebrating this or anything.  If it was Joe Buck, on the other hand, I'd take the lead in organizing the parade.
