Man Threatens Wife With Knife For Cancelling ESPN

When will women realize sports are serious business when it comes to most men?

Men are normally stressed.

Job, family, bills and etc, we don’t have a lot of outlets to alleviated that stress. Some play video games, some work out Mark McGwire style, some drink like crazy, some smoke that “Michael Phelps”, some “Tigerstyle” on the ladies and others just like to enjoy watching sports.

So I was not shocked when I read this Awful Announcing story about a man who threatened to stab his wife with a kitchen knife when she canceled his ESPN. Check it out:

Police arrested a Norwalk man on Saturday who allegedly threatened his wife at knife-point for canceling ESPN a few weeks before the Super Bowl, a department spokesperson said.

Jerome Smalls, 43, was charged with disorderly conduct and second-degree threatening.

Officers responded to Smalls’ home on West Main Street on a call of an armed subject shortly before midnight on Saturday, Norwalk police Sgt. Lisa Cotto said.

At the residence, police interviewed a woman who alleged her husband threatened her with a kitchen knife after he learned that she had recently canceled the family’s cable package, Cotto said.

Smalls was most upset for having lost his favorite sports channels, specifically the 24-hour sports network ESPN, she said.

Smalls admitted to grabbing his wife and screaming at her while their three children were sleeping, but denied ever threatening the woman with a knife, she said.

The wife told police that she canceled her husband’s favorite programs because the family could no longer afford it, Cotto said. The husband told officers that he was upset because he believed the luxury of cable was well within the household budget, she said.

On the bright side at least he didn’t cry like Chris Berman after the Brett Favre press conference.
