Famous court cases have brought such questionable defenses as "The Twinkie Defense" and "The Affluenza Defense." Now, thanks to Miami Heat player Dwyane Wade, we're seeing a new questionable defense for cases of surprise pregnancies: "The Ross Defense."
Wade's recent statement that he was on a 'break' from longtime girlfriend, actress Gabrielle Union, when he fathered a child with another woman is reminding everyone of the "Friends" TV character Ross Geller, who repeatedly used that excuse to justify a dalliance with a woman who wasn't his girlfriend, Rachel.
Wade's Ross Defense apparently worked with Gabrielle; the couple recently announced their engagement. But is it flying with the rest of us? And will it inspire guys everywhere to "Be Like Dwyane" and break out "The Ross Defense" in their thorny love issues?
