Chad Ochocinco loves attention, he craves it and needs it. He may not be psyched with the attention he’ll receive after word that he bounced a check to a “promotional model” (read: hooker) and she decided to tweet about it all over the place.
Sometime on or around 9/21 Ochocinco met up with Courtney Collins, a “promotional model” whose classy business card is rather risque and shows off her ample cleavage. She works for a service called Vivacious Models whose Myspace page doesn’t so much say escort service as SCREAM it.
Apparently short on cash, Ocho opted for the ever classy, paper-trailing showing check for what appears to be $1500. I wonder what that was for…Of course, this wouldn’t be an issue, or known, if the check didn’t bounce, clearly making Collins pissed.
Ever classy herself, Collins then tweeted the photo to all kinds of media-types, from TMZ and Perez Hilton to Tyra Banks. I don’t have an issue with him paying for a hooker, he’s just, as Charlie Sheen famously said, paying for her to leave, but c’mon Chad, be a little bit smarter than writing a check…and one that bounces at that…
Chicago-area favorite Sarah Spain — who we last looked at when she offered to bang Steve Bartman to end the Cubs curse — posted this bit of fun twitter information from Friday night. It seems that Bernard Berrian, a former Bear and current Viking was out to dinner with some friends having saki and decided to take a picture of it and tweet it. He even came up with a great caption line “
Viana Esporte is a low-level Brazilian soccer club and found themselves up 2-0 in the 81st minute. However, they learned that the team closest to them in the standings had advanced ahead of them thanks to winning their final game 5-1. Because goal differential was a tie-breaker, Viana Espotre would need 9 goals to advance.
Then they did it, 9 goals in 9 minutes. I wonder if this is like how Ichiro claims he could hit lots of home runs if he wanted to but just doesn’t; are these soccer players able to just score at will and choosing not to?
I will say it looks like the defense just totally gives up at multiple points, they aren’t even half-assing it, more like one-eighth-assing.
I am HORRIFIED. During the Minnesota/Penn State this past weekend the Penn State football team twitter feed reported a truly SHOCKING story, “From the Centre Daily Times: Security guards confiscated two-thirds of a bottle of Captain Morgan’s from the Minnesota cheerleaders.”
College students DRINKING, AT A FOOTBALL GAME! ACK! What has this country come to, I remember the days when everyone would just go to the malt-shop after the game, have some soda, and then park somewhere and do some uninspired awkward heavy-petting. What happened to THAT America? The one where teens only drank alcohol because the tough kid in the leather jacket spiked the punch bowl as his doofy friends laughingly looked on and kept a look-out.
And to help with the visualization of these alcohol-swilling harlots, via Uncoached comes some photos of the team at an earlier non-plastered phase.
The goal, which proved to be the difference in the game, was controversial because after Bent shot the ball it ricocheted off a beach ball that had fallen on the field, before redirecting into the goal. The league officials later said that there should have been a drop-ball after it hit a beach ball en route to the goal.
This has nothing to do with sports, but who cares, because it’s my blog and I think y’all should see Shakira performing on this past weekend’s Saturday Night Live. Goddamn! I didn’t know bodies could move like that. I also don’t know why Shakira hasn’t called me or nothing, I mean, I’m into her, why wouldn’t she feel the same towards me?
I once blew a near sure-thing hookup with a French-Canadian who looked identical to Shakira. True story, and still one of my biggest failures.
As their manager hunt continues, one of the names who would like to be on the list is former Tribe skipper Mike Hargrove. When he was at the helm, from 1991-1999 Hargrove took the Indians to 5 postseasons and 2 World Series (losing to the Braves in ’95 and the Marlins in ’97.)
Since being fired resigning from the Seattle Mariners midway through 2007 Hargrove has been out of the majors; he has though been managing the Liberal (KS) BeeJays a semi-pro team he played on while in college.
Wanting to be on the list doesn’t just make it so, according the Cleveland Plain Dealer he hasn’t been interviewed and isn’t likely to do so. The likely candidates right now include recently fired Nationals manager Manny Acta, Bobby Valentine and Travis Fryman among others.
This marks the first time in history that a man is looking to dump liberal BeeJays for the opportunity to get involved in a hot mess. I mean, if they’re free-flowing why ever leave?
When we last looked in on Bernie Kosar he was trying to defend his house from amorous teenage boys interested in his daughters, battling bankruptcy and divorce and understandably down in the dumps; today he’s BACK as a consultant to Cleveland Browns owner Randy Lerner. While he doesn’t have any specific duties as yet, the agreement came after Kosar spent several days working in the inner “sanctum” with head coach Eric Mangini.
Sunday’s Panthers/Buccaneers game wasn’t must-watch TV for most NFL fans, after all, who wants to watch misery? If you didn’t see the game though you probably have no idea about the pummeling that Panther Dante Wesley gave to Clifton Smith during a punt return. Smith gets knocked unconscious, Wesley sparks a mini-brawl on the field and then is ultimately ejected from the game.
