Get Arrested for DUI, Get An Award!

Joba Chamberlain

According to the New York Post, despite Joba Chamberlain’s recent arrest for DUI, the Police Athletic League in New York is set to present Chamblerlain with their 2008 Athlete of the Year Award at it’s annual SportsNite dinner on Dec. 16th.

In a letter sent earlier this month to potential sponsors, PAL president John Osbourne had this to say about Joba:

“Since making his New York debut . . . Joba has made a huge impact on the city and has already become a good friend to PAL. A wonderful role model for our children, we are honored to be presenting Joba with our 2008 Athlete of the Year award.”

Looks like you may have jumped the gun on that one, John. But this isn’t the first time John has jumped the gun on a member of the Yankees. The PAL has also honored Roger Clemens. Sounds like a prestigious award to me.
