    Default Foster....the drunk???

    I know if I was reading this thead i'd write it off as a joke, but none the less it is true.

    I live in Noblesville Indiana. Jeff Foster lives in the same neighborhood as me, down the street at my best friends old house.

    I have stated this before in a thead somewhere if you don't believe me. I am 20 years old so since I don't go to bars, we normally on the weekends get together at somebodies house for "fun."

    Anyways, on this particular night we are outside smoking cigs. We see a rather tall guy stumbling down the street walking parallel with a golf course in our neighborhood.

    He was heading our way, so we didn't have to go out of our way to realize it was....JEFF FOSTER?!?!?!

    We are all huge Pacer fans and stunned one of us yells "FIESTY!"

    He stumbles over to us obviously trashed and is almost incoherent. We begin telling him how awesome he is and we love him here in Indy.

    We ask him about practice and he informs us his back is not ready for practicing, almost laughing about it. He was belligerent and what the hell was he doing alone wondering around the neighborhood. He said something about just having to "get out" of his house for a while. Seemed plausible, but his drunken state concerned me. He was beyond any reasonable level of intoxication folks, Larry if your reading. Ship this guy out while he has any trade value left.

    Honestly, I hope i'm making a big deal out of nothing and Foster comes back next year better than ever. Time will tell.

    I hope people don't think i'm making this up.

    Back meds and alcohol probably aren't a good combination....

    It's one incident and it's on his personal time. Now, if he shows up to practice or a game like that...

    As long as it doesn't interfere with the team or with games, I couldn't care less.

    Almost every adult in the world has been drunk at one point or another. Most of those times someone else sees them too. It doesn't make them drunks.

    Larry was a two fisted drinker his entire time in Boston. I seriousley doubt they will dump Jeff because of your story.




    And if they do you had better hope I am never able to track you down.

    I actually know somebody that has gone out drinking with Jeff so I believe you. And sometimes I wonder how one game he goes out unbelievable one night, and the other he is just there. But i doubt its drinking.

    I wouldn't be the least bit surprised if Jeff had just been out on the town with Larry and Slick, and was a bit unprepared. It's hard to keep up with those guys.

    You know what guys? It is called the OFF SEASON. Hell, I could care less if it was even in season, as long as he showed up to play every night, and play hard, which he does. Get a life.

    I think Foster is a great basketball player and very valuable to the Pacers. Just because he got drunk once that you know of is no reason to send him packing. I agree with one of the posts above me that said if he were drunk at practice it would be a different story. Foster may be Australian for beer everwhere else but in Indiana its Australian for rebound.

    Hey he is from San Antonio. Drinking is mandatory here and events are created as an excuse to do so. Nice to see that he is upholding tradition.

    Whats interesting is he said it was his "back" and his back is fine he just came off hip surgery that was minor. So maybe you are making this up.

    Nothin wrong with the man throwing a few back in the offseason. Last time I checked he is over 21 and has no responsibilites yet. I bet these guys love the summer, I would think the NBA schedule would get very tiring, especially if you make the playoffs.

    OMG, a guy got drunk on his vacation. That in my mind immediately qualifies for a fire.

    It was cool that you got to meet him but you're reading to much into this.

    Yup, I'm going to say it.
