And here we thought Kyle Orton had given up the bottle for good. A trained spotter at Sandestin Village, a resort in Destin, Fla., snapped a shot on July 4 of the Dallas Cowboys QB keeping company with a bottle. Maybe it was a non-alcoholic brew. Yeah, not likely. What does this mean for the Internet? What does this mean for Dallas bars after tough losses?

This could get good.

Seriously, drunk Kyle Orton used to be big business for Busted Coverage. Back in 2008 & 2009 the guy was a force. Posted in January 2009, our 2 Girls & 1 Passed Out Kyle Orton post was the height of this guy’s drinking fame. And then he disappeared from the bar scene.

Maybe it was marriage that kept him at home. Then, a year ago in August, he became a father. Both great reasons to stop drinking Jack Daniels like it’s water. Photos of Orton and alcohol just didn’t exist.

But, as ‏@kylebritt shows us (see below), Orton is back. Can’t blame him. Not like he really needs to be in great shape or have a solid mind to be the Cowboys backup. Just stand there and clap every now and then for Romo, hit the showers and go straight to the bar.

If you see this man in the wild hitting a Bud or Jack bottle, we want to know about it. Do you have a Kyle Orton drinking story to share? Send it in.
