Travis Henry Will Fertilize Your Lawn…With His Semen
This post has nothing to do with your lawn, nor does it mention the word “semen” at any point, just hints at it.
But we wanted a catchy title that would sufficiently justify the sexual prowess of unemployed NFL running back Travis Henry. What most of us could only dream about doing in some sort of world where child support is a kind of fleeting premonition, Henry has managed to sleepwalk through.
Father to nine children, each bore to this world by a different mother, Henry now tells the New York Times he is flat broke. Paying an annual due of $170,000 to support a small army of bastard children will do that to a man.
So will failing to use a Jimmy hat.
Henry, who had three kids before he even left the University of Tennessee in 2001, claims he took precautions but was duped by the ‘ol “birth control” gag. Turns out, Henry was unknowingly aiding and abetting a slew of aspiring gold-diggers.
“I did use protection at first,” he said. “Then they’d be saying they’d be on the pill. I was an idiot to trust them. Second or third time with them, I didn’t use it. Then, boom!”
Though he is broke, to his credit, Henry, who will likely never get another shot in the NFL because of his rash of off-the-field problems, which also include failed drug tests, says he mans up to his mistakes and cares for his kids no less than if their births had been planned.
“I love all my kids. They’ve got my blood; I’ve got to deal with it.”
