Jordan Pro Strong ” Wayne recalled “He neglected my snake”
Postcard from Indy: R. Wayne shares story about pet snake
January 14, 2010By Edward Lee
Indianapolis Colts wide receiver Reggie Wayne wrapped up his session with the media at the Indiana Farm Bureau Football Center on Wednesday by retelling the story of how Ravens free safety Ed Reed killed Wayne’s pet snake.
While Wayne Jordan Pro Strong was a rookie with the Colts in 2001, he left his 9 foot pet green Burmese python named “Law” with Reed, who was a senior at the University of Miami and Wayne’s roommate. One day, according to Wayne, he got a text message from Reed, saying, “Law’s dead.”
“He killed my snake,” Wayne recalled. “He neglected my snake.”
Despite that transgression, Wayne and Reed remain tight. Wayne said he and Reed speak about three times a week, spending about 30 minutes on the phone each time talking about life, Air Jordan 10s football and anything else. “It’s probably too much time” on the phone with Reed, Wayne said.
Wayne said he and Reed have an arrangement under which he will take Reed out to dinner this weekend. (If the Colts travel to Baltimore, dinner is on Reed.) Wayne said he will broach the topic of Law during dinner.
“He was supposed to reimburse me with a new one,” said Wayne, who was prodded to Air Jordan 8s rehash the Air Jordan CDP story by Indianapolis Star columnist Bob Kravitz. “He hasn’t done Air Jordan 1s that yet. Thanks for bringing that up because I’ll be sure to bring it up with him this week.”
