Move Aside Shawn Kemp

Travis Henry's personal life was recently revealed after he received a child-support judgment in a DeKalb County, Ga., court. As a result, he has been ordered to pay $3,000 a month in child support and set up a $250,000 trust fund for one of his 9 kids.

I don't know how Travis Henry's name slipped past me when we compiled our "Father's Day" post back a couple months ago (see below link), but it did. In a story in which many blogs and radio stations have run with in the past few days, Travis Henry has 9 kids...all by different 4 different states. Move over, Shawn Kemp...Travis Henry is the new standard.

And, yes, T-Hen is only 28 years old. Recent reports have indicated that Henry once had to borrow money from the Titans after falling behind on his child support payments.

His response?

"People can judge me all they want. But only God can judge me."

...I couldn't have said it any better.

...And, now that Henry is getting paid (and a full-time starter again) -- to the tune of $22.5 million (over 5 years), I'm willing to bet the house that he won't be able to resist the temptation that comes with making #10 this year out in Denver.

For the record...from a fantasy perspective, Travis Henry (assuming health) is going to blow up in a big way this year. The question is, will he score more TD's (he had 7 last year) than he has kids?

Many, many posts to come this evening. Just don't have the time to post now.

I'll make up for it.

There is more hilariousness to the story. Henry bought a $100k Mercedes & spent $140k on jewelry last year but fell behind on his child support. To "catch up" he borrowed $10k from the Titans organization. This guy is about as cool as Michael Vick!
