There’s a headline we always wanted to write.

Fireworks safety PSAs are everywhere each year around the Fourth of July: Be careful. Don’t hold them in your hands. Stay the hell away once they’re lit, etc. Giants defensive end Jason Pierre-Paul should’ve listened.

As it was first reported over the weekend, JPP suffered a hand injury due to a firework accident, severely burning some fingers and his thumb. As of the most recent update, it looks like JPP won’t lose any fingers, but he could suffer severe nerve damage. The Giants franchise-tagged him this offseason, but as Jordan Raanan at reports, “the Giants could rescind their current contract offer, if they so please.” That might make sense for them, too. I’m not sure they believe in the brightest future for the dude who can’t keep his hand away from what is essentially a colorful bomb. This seems like more of a breach of contract than, say, carrying OxyContin over the Canadian border.

Kyle: I’d wager that there’s a strong inverse correlation between education and fireworks. And with that said, shoutout to the asshole setting them off at 1:45 a.m. on a Sunday night last night.

UPDATE: The Giants have reportedly rescinded their offer.
