So all the overdose talk that has gone around is interesting, because now Shawne Merriman has just tweeted that he was just dehydrated. Now what story should we believe?

All the major news units are saying that he was hospitalized with a possible overdose, but it all seemed a little fishy. It seems that he was out all night long. He was tweeting all night and was partying with The Game and when someone said prayers for him, he asked what for?

Merriman seemed fine on video from TMZ just 3 hours from being hospitalized. I almost believe that he was just dehydrated.

Either way, happy that Merriman is doing well. I am sure there will be even more to come from this.

    Dehydration put the lights out for “Lights out”…well at least it´s nothing serious…

      was thinking the same… weird how all the other reports say it was an overdose…. i am sure others will investigate that mess

    Glad he’s ok. Wish he was able to stay healthy and continue to play for the bolts.

      He’s just not good without his roids.

  • Gunnar Martin

    Sure hope this was the real story.

    Man, it must kill him to think about the life that he could’ve had.

      I hear ya man… at one time, we had the best player on offense and the best player on defense. It’s a shame we didn’t take care of the knee when it should have been taken care of. As for dehydration… it happened to me once. I was at the gym, hadn’t eaten all day. Went to the drinking fountain, and while I was walking back, I just collapsed, fainted. When I awoke, the first thing they asked me is if I was on drugs! I believe Shawne!

    That’s TMZ for ya…jumping to the worst possible conclusion. Merriman is a good dude. He helped out the charity I work with quite a bit. I’ll eat a Buffalo Bills hat if it turns out to actually have been an overdose.

      well… it was actually TMZ that challenged the thought of him being OD

      • http://www.standupforkids.org blackroseMD1

        Was it not TMZ that initially reported it as a possible OD though? I can’t seem to figure out if it was them or the LA Times. Google isn’t being very helpful.

    Maybe he gets his body somewhat balanced and he can look for a return? he seems way more mature than he did as a bolt.

    I’ve been dehydrated to the point of being hospitalized but in my case I just couldn’t stop vomiting. I never felt that I was going to pass out. I don’t believe Merriman.
