Video: Corie Blount’s Jail Sentence is Quite Hilarious

by Marcel Mutoni

ESPN SportsCenter anchor Chris McKendry certainly seems to think so.

Corie Blount, the former Chicago Bull, was caught with 29 pounds of weed last December (enough to make Cheech and Chong blush, according to the judge who sent him to prison), and is now headed to the hole for a year.

All of this was apparently too much to handle for the SportsCenter anchor, as she couldn’t control her giggling while delivering the news:

    29 lbs. Damn. I rememeber one thing about Corie’s time in Chicago: he always tried to look hard while sucking balls in his minutes played. He was Dickey Simpkins without the effort.

    hahaha, I like the co-anchor

    Wow. Completely unprofessional. How did this woman get on TV?

  • http://slamonline.com Russ Bengtson

    Please tell me she got fired. Or at least suspended. ESPN sucks.

    Hilarious, and you know she’s not getting fired. LOL…

    Corie is the new Robert Parrish, except chief got his through the mail.

    W.O.W. Jailtime sure is a funny matter in the States. What a C.U.N.T.

  • http://effyou@heythere.com Allenp

    It was ESPN.
    Enough said.

  • dood

    Hahaha, American drug policy sucks.

    If I were him I’d have gone to Vancouver or something.

    Maybe if Arnold gets it legalized, he’ll be let out early?

  • seppo

    She´s kinda hot.

    C. Blount is to intellegent to go out like he did. The consequences of your actions are all you get when you live a disposable lifestyle. Everything you get from that certain lifestyle is eiter temporary a discructive. If I was that sports reporter I would have laughed to at C. Blount bigg dumb 7′ foot ass too!!!

  • http://www.liveddb.com DDB

    What isn’t to laugh at?

    1. The dude was dumb enough to be in/around that much weed

    2. He tried to pass it off for personal use (probably the funniest thing about the situation).

    3. The judge scoffed at his claim of “personal use” and let him know that he is nowhere near as dumb as Corie Blount (because only a fool would think that excuse would work).

    Corie couldn’t help himself – his last name made him do it!

    this is like something out of a comedy, how is it not funny? yeah it’s not exactly professional, but 29 lbs of weed for a guy name blount with the judge referencing cheech and chong (who clearly had to have partaked in this activity in his life)? this is what i call “hilarity ensues”.

  • Kobe

    Cause she laughs shes unprofessional? Get a clue foo. It was funny, she laughed. Nothing wrong with that

    hahaha… lets all stop being hypocrites – we all found this pretty funny… i know its a tragic story, but its funny to see it as an outsider, and sometimes people can’t help but show their emotions – it happens to the best of us

    this reminds me of jack johnson’s lyrics in “the news”:
    Why don’t the newscasters cry when they read about people who die
    At least they could be decent enough to put just a tear in their eyes

  • Magic

    lmao shes smacked!

  • http://jakeandamir.com tealish

    Lol, she should’ve remained professional but I really don’t blame her all. It’s a funny story, relax.

  • http://jakeandamir.com tealish

    Oh, we’re asking for her to be fired now? Okay then, nevermind. I guess it’s a huge deal after all!

  • wilford brimley

    Hate on ESPN all you want, for me this story is hilarious. A guy whose name is pronounced “blunt” gets busted for 30 pounds of weed. Not only does he claim it was for personal use, but the judge even calls him out by referencing Cheech and Chong.

    I think weed should be legalized, considering most scientific studies have shown that it is less harmful than even alcohol or tobacco. I do believe, however, that harmful drugs should remain illegal.

  • Ted Dong

    LMFAO! I find it funny when people actually think weed is less harmful than tobacco. Can you get high, hop in a car, and DUI by smoking cigarettes and cigars? Ummmmmmm, NO.

  • that dude

    The NBA issued a flagrant 2 to this anchor after reviewing the play.

    All drugs should be legalised in my opinion.

  • knock knock

    umm you can’t get dui by smoking weed either you dumbass.

  • http://lamarcusaldridge.com Dean [Tha Best]

    hahaha thats funny

  • wilford brimley

    @ Ted Dong I meant harmful as in medically harmful to your body. Tobacco (and other chemicals in cigarettes as well) is much worse for your body than marijuana. In addition, the total harm caused by tobacco is MUCH greater than alcohol. There’s an article in JAMA 2004 that showed about 400k deaths from tobacco vs. alcohol at about 85k. Notice illicit drugs at 17k (which includes the much more dangerous drugs)


    I understand your dui argument in terms of the mental impairment, but we can prevent dui without outright ban on consumption. Breathalyzer ignitions aren’t quite effective yet, but as the technology improves, they would dramatically reduce impaired driving. Bottom line is marijuana is simply not as harmful as tobacco or alcohol.

    Let me find out you can’t get the ghetto out of some people. That lady was as professional as she could be under those circumstances.

    That’s right, standards don’t matter depending on the situation…

  • rob

    It seems Corey sent her some of his stuff…

  • chintao

    I know Blount pronounces his name with an “ow” sound, but I doubt anyone will ever say it that way ever again. He will evermore be Corie Blunt. Also, I would say that people who have never used or sold drugs (or, at least been close to someone who has used or sold) are not in a position to speak on drug related matters. Ergo, half the posts on this thread merit deletion.

  • Chicago82

    yes you can get a dui for smoking weed. You can also get a dui for taking c2 perscription pills like vicodin-percocet etc…

  • BishopJSmith

    I am the youngest brother of Corie Blount, and as a member of his family to see such inappropriate conduct by what we would call a professional is sad to see, I admit it was funny but there must be a level of discretion in front of the camera. I frown on ESPN for letting that happen without any regard to the family of Corie who had to see her make fun of Corie’s freedom.
