He wore these shorts, rocked a platinum blonde hairdo, accidentally put a picture of his penis on the Internet, then told yours truly that the NFL made him undergo psychiatric evaluation after putting picture of said penis on the Internet. He was also the first athlete to ever guest write an edition of Hot Clicks, and made one of the best fantasy football videos you'll ever see. Sadly, Chris Cooley's time as a Redskins tight end came to a finish today when the club released him. All I can say is that I hope another team picks him up -- and every athlete should take a lesson from Cooley on how to deal with the media, blogs and the Internet.
