SECOND BEST DRUNK ATHLETE STORY OF THE DAY

August 20, 2008

“FAT, PUSSY TOAD” HIDEKI IRABU

Former New York Yankees pitcher Hideki Irabu was arrested for allegedly assaulting a bartender in Osaka, Japan today. The New York Post says Irabu drank “20 mugs of beer” then apparently became angry when his credit card was declined. Irabu allegedly pushed the bartender against the wall, pulled his hair and smashed nine liquor bottles.

Irabu spent six seasons in Major League Baseball with the Yankees, Rangers and Expos. He is currently retired and living in California.

The pitcher was one of the first Japanese League players to make the transition to the big leagues. He didn’t do it very successfully. Irabu was 34-35 (although he did win 13 games for the Yankees in 1998). He also drew the wrath of Yankees owner George Steinbrenner who once called Irabu a “fat, pussy toad.”

BEST DUI STORY EVER!

August 20, 2008

 

 

Let’s get this out of the way up front. Driving drunk is not funny. Each year approximately 42,000 Americans are killed by drunk drivers.

On the other hand…

This has got to be the greatest DUI story involving an athlete EVER!

According to the Grand Rapids Press, University of Michigan running back Kevin Grady was arrested for DUI in Wyoming after police found him pulling a Tony LaRussa. Grady was passed out in his vehicle. The running back was unconscious with his foot on the brake.

Grady failed a field breathalyzer test. He had a blood alcohol level of 0.28 – more than three times the legal limit.

Grady also failed a field sobriety test. SPECTACULARLY.

When asked by the arresting officer to recite the alphabet, Grady said,

 “O, R, S, J, L, P.”

When the arresting officer asked Grady to name a number between 12 and 14, Grady answered,

“15”

Finally, the officer asked Grady whether Mickey Mouse is a dog or a cat. The running back responded,

“Dog.”

Apparently a Michigan education isn’t what it used to be.

CONNECTICUT UMPIRES HONOR CHILD MOLESTER FOR HIS WORK WITH KIDS

August 17, 2008

TOM BARBERO

From SPORTSbyBROOKS:

 

Here’s your sick story of the day.

A convicted child sex offender is being given a “lifetime achievement award” for his work in a Connecticut youth baseball league. Tom Barbero, 58, spent four years in prison after pleading guilty to sexual assault of a minor.  He is listed on Connecticut’s sex offender registry. Police say Barbero sexually assaulted at least three teenage boys in 1994 and 1995.

Nonetheless, the Torrington Board of Approved Baseball Umpires chose to honor Barbero who umpired Connecticut youth league games from 1970 to 1998. Worse, the umpires group says they KNEW of Barbero’s criminal past and sexual assaults on children. According to the Hartford Courant, board members said they knew about Barbero’s criminal record and chose to honor him anyway because his service and work as an umpire deserved recognition. Said a spokesman for the umpires group,

 

 

 

 

“Tommy was one of the greats. He really was.”

 

Court records say the victims Barbero sexually assaulted were young boys between the ages of 13 and 15. Barbero umpired Babe Ruth league baseball games. The ages of Babe Ruth league players in Connecticut is 13-15. Sick!

Nice work by SPORTSbyBROOKS for coming up with this repugnant story.

NEVADA SEEKS TO SOLVE BUDGET PROBLEMS BY BANNING TYPEWRITERS IN PRISON

August 12, 2008

 

 

Nevada prison officials recently made a decision that is expected to save the state millions of dollars. They have banned manual typewriters. Don’t laugh. This is actually a stroke of genius by the state.

According to an article in today’s Las Vegas Review Journal, for decades Nevada prisoners (with plenty of free time on their hands) have been busy pecking out a barrage of lawsuits against the state. The inmates use state-issued prison typewriters to write their own legal briefs. They then flood the courts with these briefs forcing the state and prison officials to spend millions of dollars to respond. These are often frivolous nuisance suits. No more.

Nevada has confiscated every prison typewriter in the entire state. How is that legal? Easy. The state’s prison officials did it for “safety” reasons. They say there are parts of a typewriter that can be used as a weapon. They even issued a memo describing the typewriter parts that are particularly dangerous. The state also cited two example of prisoner violence involving typewriters.

Hey, times are tough economically in Nevada. This is one example of a government memo that may have actually SAVED money. Naturally, the ACLU is going insane over the decision. They have filed a lawsuit of their own in the case.

CRAZY CHURCH KILLER (AND BIG SEAN HANNITY FAN) JIM DAVID ATKINSON

Lunatic gunman Jim Atkinson was arrested by Knoxville police following his killing of two people and shooting eight others at a children’s play. The Tennessee man said he commited the crimes in order to “kill liberals.”

When authorities searched Atkinson’s house among the items found was the book “Liberalism is a Mental Health Disorder” by conservative radio talk show host Michael Savage.

 

 

Also found was a copy of “Let Freedom Ring” by talk show host Sean Hannity,

DISGRACED REF TIM DONAGHY OFF TO PRISON

July 29, 2008

TIM DONAGHY

Disgraced NBA referee Tim Donaghy was sentenced to 15 months in prison today for his role in a gambling scandal. That prison sentence will be followed by three years of probation. Donaghy pleaded guilty to two felonies for providing inside information to professional gamblers and to betting on games, including those he officiated.

Donaghy’s lawyers had argued for a reduced sentence for their client claiming he is addicted to gambling. Maybe this is a bad analogy, but isn’t a convicted point fixer asking for leniency because of a gambling problem kind of like someone who kills their parents asking for mercy because he’s an orphan?

LEGENDARY VEGAS GAMBLER AND CRIMINAL DIES

July 26, 2008

JIMMY CHAGRA

Only in Las Vegas.

The death of one of the biggest drug dealers in American history, who arranged the murder of a federal judge, is being met with tears. Why? Because he was a GREAT tipper and a degenerate gambler.

Jimmy Chagra was known as one of the most prolific pot dealers ever. The saying goes if you smoked marijuana in the 60’s or 70’s, chances are you got it from Jimmy Chagra. Chagra was the “undisputed marijuana kingpin of the Western world.”

 When Chagra was eventually nailed by the Feds he had over $100 million dollars in foreign accounts. The government took it all. Las Vegas casinos loved Chagra because he laundered that money through them.

Chagra was known as one of the biggest high rollers in Las Vegas history. He often lost millions of dollars (of drug money) in a single night. Chagra may also have been one of the most generous tippers in Las Vegas history. He was such an extravagent tipper that journalist George Knapp tells the story of how the card dealers at Caesar’s Palace once bought Chagra a giant trophy in honor of the “gargantuan” tips the drug kingpin left.

One of the most interesting aspects of Chagra’s death was his connection to Charles Harrelson. Harrelson was the father of actor Woody Harrelson and known as one of the most famous hitmen and murderers in American history. He was convicted of killing federal judge “Maximum John”  Wood. Harrelson once confessed to having a role in the Kennedy assassination (which he later recanted.) Conspiracy theorists have said Harrelson was one of the “Three Tramps”  hiding in a box car on the railroad tracks behind Dealey Plaza just after Kennedy’s shooting.

Charles Harrelson died in the federal Supermax prison while serving a life sentence. Chagra, who confessed to hiring Harrelson to kill Wood, was acquitted of murder charges after hiring defense attorney Oscar Goodman. Goodman is now the mayor of Las Vegas. In later years Chagra tried denying hiring Harrelson. The fact is Chagra’s wife was arrested delivering $250,000 to him. Chagra was also on tape talking about hiring Harrelson for the hit while he was in prison (a tape Goodman got thrown out of court.)

WHAT A DICK! ANDY ARRESTED FOR SEXUAL BATTERY AND DRUG CHARGES AT BUFFALO WILD WINGS

July 16, 2008

ANDY DICK

Honestly, if you can get into this much trouble at a Buffalo Wild Wings you’re a complete degenerate.

The National Enquirer is reporting that actor and “comedian” Andy Dick was arrested in California on drug and sexual battery charges.

Police responded to reports of “an intoxicated male” at a Murrieta Buffalo Wild Wings. A 17-year-old girl told officers arriving on the scene that Dick had pulled her top down exposing her breasts. Police found the prescription tranquilizer Xanax on the loser actor along with some pot.

Dick was booked on suspicion of felony possession of a controlled substance, misdemeanor sexual battery and misdemeanor possession of marijuana.
