Former Giant Caught Evading Jail To Watch Bowl

Former Giants wide receiver turned bank fraud artist Mark Ingram evading the start of a lengthy jail sentence once for pleading leniency so he could watch his son, also named Mark, play in a big college football game.

His sexy status is further jeopardized by his Cro-Magnon mug (never have a player’s looks been so betrayed by the removal of his ball cap) and, worse, the litany of grotesque anatomical details we’ve been forced to hear.”
