Sorry for posting later than normal today. I hate to inconvenience my handful of loyal readers so again my apologies. I'd feel bad but hey, no buddy is paying me to write this or you to read this. No lives are lost in the production or consumption of this blog. All of our wounds will heal. If I hurt you with my tardiness, I'm sorry. Rub some dirt in it, walk it off, and sit down and enjoy the crap.
That gambling NBA ref cops a plea. Now if the NBA would just plead guilty to being a crappy sport we could all move on with our lives:http://www.msnbc.msn.com/id/20269972/
That idiot Michael Vick is looking to cop a plea too. Vick's lawyers are encouraging him to accept the plea if he would only be required to serve a year or less in prison. Vick's legal team is also trying to work a settlement with the NFL as well. For all the fun that is the Vick soap opera, go visit the kids at www.profootballtalk.com. I'm sure there is a nice dogfighting site out there too with breaking news on the case but I'll be damned if I'd wanna see it.
Just curious....now that the NFL is coming down on hard on players involved in dogfighting, do they plan to issue suspensions to players charged with domestic violence? Now I'm no feminist but shouldn't a crime against women carry more weight than crimes against dogs? Of course, there was gambling involved with the dogfighting and gambling in a sin in pro sports (ask our friend the NBA ref). Me thinks that unless someone says "Hey Mr. NFL player, I'll bet ya 10 bucks you're afraid to hit you're wife" that Vick will serve a longer suspension than the next NFL wife beater. Deadspin offers their take on the Vick story:http://deadspin.com/sports/ron-mexico/ron-mexico-head-for-the-clink-289688.php

One of Imus's nappy headed ho's (his words not mine) is taking him to court:http://www.washingtonpost.com/wp-dyn/content/article/2007/08/15/AR2007081500546.html?hpid=moreheadlines
The news ain't all bad for that idiot Imus. Looks like he could be back on the airwaves soon:http://www.chicagotribune.com/entertainment/sns-ap-imus-radio,1,955743.story?coll=chi_tab01_layout

I hate Britney Spears. I don't like using my space to even mention that no talent ass clown. HOWEVER...the gossips are saying that Brit's into chicks and I think that's hot:http://www.nydailynews.com/gossip/2007/08/15/2007-08-15_byebi_britney.html
I've never really found Billy Crystal funny. Sure he's funnier than Jimmy Fallon but so is azz cancer. Anyway, the former Soap star wants a talk show of his own:http://www.nypost.com/seven/08152007/gossip/pagesix/crystal_vision_pagesix_.htm
Seems Van Halen wiped out former bassist Michael Anthony from its history..well, they tried to. All pics of Mike were removed from the bands website and that includes photoshopping album covers. The pics of Mike are back on the bands website now. What the Van Halen brothers need is one of those memory wipe things from Men in Black to erase the Gary Cherone era.
No one makes a romantic home sex vid like Marilyn Manson:http://www.people.com/people/article/0,,20051621,00.html
