Thanks to Top Ten Nominee, we have some idea of how geography plays into the incident.
Point A happens to be the offices of the National Football League. Point B is where Plaxico shot himself in the thigh, at a club called Latin Quarter. It's a little hard to see, but I think you can get the idea of the insane proximity between the club and the NFL's offices.
Walking, this is a distance of .1 mile, which is somewhere around 500 or 600 feet. Plax is lucky that Goodell wasn't in his office late that night, or he could have been there in two minutes. Maybe he was.
This is like Barry Bonds shooting up steroids while going down the slide at Miller Park, or Donaghy asking David Stern for his cell phone so he can call his bookie. Oh Plaxico, please keep the content coming.
