It would seem that there is one defender that Arizona Cardinals star wide receiver Larry Fitzgerald can't seem to shake: speed-cams -- the dreaded defender of Valley freeways.
Fitzgerald's Cadillac Escalade has been photographed by speed-cams as it was blasting down Valley freeways six times since August, according to a report from gossip-spewing Web site TMZ.com.
Lucky for Larry, it seems there's a pretty good chance that he's not the one driving -- unless, of course, he owns a nerdy white-guy mask he throws on every time he flies past a speed-cam (this wouldn't be all that out of the ordinary around Phoenix, where a man in a monkey mask racked up 37 photo-radar tickets before getting caught).

In five of the six photos of Fitzgerald's car, the driver appears to be white. Check out the photos here.
The photos are a little grainy -- as is the case with many photo-radar pictures -- but you can clearly see that only one of the men pictured driving Fitzgerald's car can be positively identified as a black guy, and even he doesn't look a whole lot like the Cards star.
The drivers are more than likely just mooching friends of Fitzgerald's, but unfortunately for Larry, he's the one who gets stuck with the ticket.
