Give Him Points for Balls, Not the Execution

ticket-scalperPolice arrested Douglas Clark outside Yankee stadium before game 2 for trying to sell fake World Series tickets. Ever the entrepreneur, Clark did the only reasonable thing available, he offered a bribe to the arresting officers. In exchange for letting him loose, Clark offered the cop tickets to a later game in the series.

Considering he was being arrested for selling FAKE tickets, the cop turned him down. Now Clark is being held for attempted bribery and possession of a forged instrument. Ooops!

You Got a Joint? It’d Be a Lot Cooler if You Did

LincecumMitchIn one of the least surprising misdemeanors of all time, 2008 Cy Young winner Tim Lincecum was pulled over for speeding just over the Oregon border in Washington. His 2006 Mercedes was clocked going 74 in a 60 zone,
which frankly is a ridiculous reason to be pulled over, and when the police officer approached the window the smell of weed came out.
Lincecum, after being asked by the officer handed over a pipe and about 3.3 grams of weed, in one bud. Under Washington law any amount of weed under 40 grams is considered for personal use.
“It’s not really out of the ordinary. It happens every day,” Washington State Patrolman Steve Schatzel said of the amount of weed Lincecum had with him. “It was about the size of a thumb, the whole thumb.”

All told, Lincecum could face a $622 fine for the misdemeanor possession, paraphernalia and the speeding ticket. Despite making a mere $650,000, this shouldn’t put Tim in the poor-house.

Screw Like a Champion

olympic-condom-ringsThe Beijing Olympics were legendary for the amount of sex the athletes were having, the organizers distributed over 100,000 condoms to the athletes, very few of which remained. Those unlucky few that did, about 5,000, were bought up by a collector who is now going to sell them off at the equivalent of about $.13 apiece.

Each condom wrapper includes the motto of the Beijing Games, “Faster, Higher, Stronger” in English and Chinese

Unfortunately, you have to buy the entire lot, you can’t purchase the condoms individually at the Exceptional Auction of China Sport Collection to be held on the 29th of November.

Chick Fight! Dig it!

During a semifinals match between the women’s soccer teams from BYU and New Mexico things started to get a bit ugly after BYU took a 1-0 lead.

The main offender was Elizabeth Lambert from New Mexico who played more like a linebacker than a soccer player; she proceeded to punch an opponent in the back, grab a girl and throw her down to the ground by the ponytail, excessively trip and elbow, and later slapped another player as she drove to the goal. Vicious!

The score held and BYU ultimately pulled out the victory but you can guarantee they were bruised and battered afterwards and that no love is lost between these two teams.

While clearly Lambert is the aggressor for the most part, those BYU girls do have a bit of fight in them too…
