Wayne plots revenge on Reed for dead snake

Alright, so this story apparently isn’t that new.

But it’s new to us, and it’s better than the old Colts-Ravens storylines.

Ed Reed and Reggie Wayne are great friends going back to their days at “The U.” When Wayne was drafted by the Colts, he left his pet nine-foot pet green Burmese python for Reed to take care of during his senior year.

Wayne got a concise text one day: “Law’s dead.”

“He killed my snake,” Wayne said to reporters Wednesday. “He neglected my snake. He was supposed to reimburse me with a new one. He hasn’t done that yet. Thanks for bringing that up because I’ll be sure to bring it up with him this week.”

Reed and Wayne are still very close, speaking on the phone three times a week for 30 minutes each time. (I suddenly feel worse about not always answering my parent’s phone calls.)

Wayne has been in the news for other off-field pursuits this week. We’d like to congratulate him for the ambitious entertainment complex he is helping to fund in the New Orleans area. The name: Wayne’s World.
