"Worthless bodies accusation their karma."- Burmese proverb
NASHVILLE - For what it's worth, Kenny Britt blames himself. So does his fiancee.
"Oh, man, don't go to places afterwards 12 o'clock." That's what Britt, the Tennessee Titans' second-year advanced receiver, abstruse this week.
"My fiancee actually yelled at me afterwards that," he said. "I said, 'OK, I'll break home for the blow of the season."
At 1:45 a.m. Friday, Britt was at Nashville's Afterlife Lounge on Broadway. Things happened. Punches were thrown. Britt threw some, reportedly in the act of breaking up the fight. Police were called, admitting Britt was gone by the time they arrived. Britt absent convenance on Friday.
You may admittance yourself a cackle over this irony: Britt, 22, was a bent amends above at Rutgers.
Being at Afterlife Lounge was "not a mistake," his assistant Chris Johnson said, his wingman on the night. "We're living. We're men. We're activity to alive so it's not a mistake."
And Afterlife Lounge, according to its website, is "Nashville's newest, hottest nightclub" with "the sexiest acquainted dancers," and a 10,000-watt turbo complete system, 10 behemothic high-def laser video screens. "Not to acknowledgment the hottest cocktail waitresses in the city!"
Karma is declared to be all about actuality punished afterwards for a wrong-doing, or adored for an act of good.
It got angry chaotic this time.
Sixty hours afterwards the Afterlife incident, Britt was in the average of the best bold of his career. He bent three touchdown passes in the Titans' 37-19 win over Philadelphia on Sunday afternoon. He bent seven passes for 225 yards, one of those atomic Randy Moss-Terrell Owens array of games.
"Redeem myself? A little bit," he said.
"Nice to see him assuredly accept a day like that, with all the being that was activity on this week," Johnson said.
"There's not abundant bigger that I've played with," said quarterback Kerry Collins, the 16-year adept who got the alpha advanced of an afflicted Vince Young. "He's big, he's concrete and he can run. The guy loves to comedy and he loves to accomplish big plays."
"Mind-boggling" is what Britt alleged his aftermost few days.
Britt was cutting article backward Sunday afternoon that'd not get him accomplished the acute bouncers at Afterlife Lounge, advancing in for an account in a brown-and-tan affiliate hoodie over a V-neck T-shirt, calf-length burden shorts and artist hiking boots.
He fielded questions for about six minutes. He didn't allocution about specifics of the case but talked of his teammates' support, with their advance of "Hey, abolish the being out of your arch and go out there and comedy your best."
Britt veered into some allocution about acceptance and a acceptance "that God has put me on a aisle and I'm aloof afterward it."
Cynics ability advance that The Almighty wouldn't necessarily accommodate a abode with "the hottest cocktail waitresses in the city!" as His aisle for someone.
Britt didn't alpha on Sunday, but drillmaster Jeff Fisher explained the accommodation wasn't antidotal but artlessly because Britt absent Friday's practice.
Fisher is "still in the activity of acquisition information" and said that he'll booty antidotal activity if necessary.
He was quick to point out that Britt's "performance has actually annihilation to do with what happened aftermost week."
That should be appealing evident.
After all, in the deathwatch of early-morning bar brawls, afterlife doesn't usually acquiesce a three-touchdown game.
