The week of the brawl

If there WNBA fight wasn't enough for you this week, here is a minor league baseball fight from this week. The Dayton Dragons vs. Peoria Chiefs video shows some insane action, including a pitcher meaning to throw a ball into a dugout, but instead hit a fan. This is Piston/Pacer style action!

WNBA turning gangsta

Not to be outdone by their male counterparts, there was all out fireworks in last nights LA Sparks/Detroit Shock WNBA game. This is highlighted by Rick Mahorn throwing Lisa Leslie to the floor. I never thought I could get this turned on watching a woman's basketball game. Especially considering it doesn't involve a vat of jello.

Jaguar busted

Jacksonville Jaguars wide receiver Matt Jones faces a felony drug charge in his former college town after police say he was inside a car cutting up cocaine with a credit card. Police said they searched the vehicle and found a plastic bag filled with a white substance that tested positive for cocaine and a jar with possible marijuana residue. Police said 6 grams of cocaine was found.

Maybe you’re like me and are saying to yourself “Damn! Another brotha’s going to jail for snorting in his car.” But click on his player profile. What in Jason Williams is going on here?! This can’t be right?! Next thing they’ll be telling us is that the Manning brothers were arrested for gang raping a stripper.

ARod single again

Not that his marriage vows stopped him from playing the field, but this week Alex Rodriguez's wife, Cynthia filed for divorce. Cynthia filed for divorce from A-Rod on the grounds that "the marriage of the parties is irretrievably broken because of the husband's extramarital affairs and other marital misconduct," the lawsuit states.

That "misconduct" presumably includes Alex Rodriguez's relationship with Madonna, which his wife says involves the Jewish mystic philosophy kabbalism -- and the pop star playing the role of teacher to A-Rod, her doe-eyed, "brainwashed" student. A-Rod's obsession with all things Madonna includes listening only to her music while driving, dumping his longtime sports agent for her manager -- a kabbalah practitioner -- and the three of them enjoying private Friday-night Sabbath dinners together, sources have said. All of these things were the last straw for his wife, who has suffered through a string of extramarital affairs by Stray-Rod during their 5½ years of marriage. All of this just months after the couple had their second child together.

We already knew Rodriguez liked slamming she-males, so stuffing Madonna makes total sense. Especially if he's into decrepit mature women. Sleeping with Madonna is only slightly better than Bea Arthur. And by slightly better I mean she doesn't wake him up in the middle of the night to change her diapers.

Vick is broke

Jailbird QB Michael Vick filed for bankruptcy protection while serving time for federal dogfighting charges. It is claimed he owes between US$10 million and $50 million to creditors. Vick filed Chapter 11 papers in U.S. Bankruptcy Court in Newport News on Monday. The seven largest creditors listed in the court papers are owed a total of about $12.8 million. The debt includes part of a signing bonus that the Falcons are seeking to recover, as well as $4.5 million owed to Richmond-based Joel Enterprises Inc., and $550,0000 owed to Radtke Sports Inc. for breach of contract. The suspended Atlanta Falcons quarterback ``will seek to rebuild his life and career'' upon his release, according to the filings.

Being in jail is bad enough without have someone else in on his ass. At 3-cents per licence plate, Mexico's got a lot of work ahead of him. Other than Michael Strahan who would have thought that having ferocious bitches on your property would have cost so much.
