What is a racist, antisemetic, bigoted, Academy Award winning producer and director supposed to do when he has an ex-girlfriend and child to support and can no longer finance his attendance of Los Angeles Lakers games? When you're a living Looney Tunes character that goes by the name of Mel Gibson, you scream until your face is as blue as in Braveheart.
In the latest of the recorded phone rants to his ex-girlfriend Oksana Grigorieva, Gibson screams: "I don't have any ------- money! I have to support you and everybody else! I have to sell paintings." Perhaps more importantly to the crazed lunatic, he shouted, "I have to sell my box at the Lakers game!"
Upon hearing of the demise of Gibson's personal box, it has been rumored (and you heard it here first) that Lakers star Ron Artest immediately offered the services of his own, personal psychiatrist to help Gibson deal with the internal pain that must come from losing a season ticket to basketball games. However, since he can no longer afford ticket prices at the Staples Center let's hope he at least has an affordable co-pay for mental health visits under the terms of his insurance policy.
Regardless of what happens to Mel, in the spirit of his lunacy we have decided to explore the rantings and ravings that occur within the sports world. As a special treat, this week's show will allow you to look AND listen as athletes and sports figures do their very best to give Gibson's rants a run for their money.
So sit back and relax as we welcome you to "The Passion of the Crazed: 20 Biggest Mel Gibson-like Rants in Sports"- complete with video!
