- Speaking of Jacko, the death of The King of Pop (not to be confused with The Kings of Poop, ahem) apparently sparked a mini-riot on a Miami bus Friday (Reuters). Being proud residents of the Sunshine State, we actually find this episode to be merely the third most embarrassing Florida-related story of the weekend, ranking behind New Port Richey douchebag baiting Phillies pitcher J.C. Romero into punching him as the jock-sniffer was ATTEMPTING TO GET AUTOGRAPHS FROM PHILLIES PLAYERS (Tampabay.com), and a 70-year-old Manatee woman earning her seventh DUI (ABCactionnews.com).
- Seattle judge approves permit for strip club to be built near Safeco Field, despite objections from Mariners’ front office (and player wives, no doubt). (SeattlePI.com)
- Sports radio blabbermouth blind-sides Jennifer Capriati with questions about her sexuality; The Big Lead appalled at horny host’s objectification of female athletes. Thank goodness they’ve never lowered themselves to that sort of low-brow chicanery. C’mon guys, we love your site and all … but seriously?
